Excerpt: Amazing lens, could shoot an entire documentary with it. Used it on three films, and it is the lens that holds it all together, great to interviews and intimate filming of subjects when there isn't a lot of movement.
Excerpt: The 50 1.2L either you love it, or you hate it. Seems not to be a mid term here. This is my take: This lens is not sharp at 1.2. Is not super sharp even at 1.4. There.... I said it. But, and it`s a BIG "but" people who buy this piece of glass doesn`t buy it for it`s sharpness wide open.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I have purchased this both for use in still photography on my Canon 40D and as a professional "interview" lens for the C100. I have only had it for 24 hours, but the quality of the images that it generated, just around my home are stunning!
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, One Of A Kind Images, Rugged
Excerpt: i have a few L lens, this is my 1st choise when taking pictures for kids. with 6d's high iso, i turn night into day light. i posted a pic on wechat, my friend say she can take the same picture with her point and shoot camera, she say that because she can't imagine the kids's bright and clear faces...
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I was looking for a primary lens. It took a while to justify the cost of this lens, but it was worth the wait. The clarity and quality is there. Yes, one can throw all the technical terms out there and this lens will get high marks in all of them. However, my initial response stands: WOW!
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
