About Me Semi-Professional
Comments about Canon EF 50mm f1.2 L USM Lens:
This has to be one of the best lenses I have used with a super wide aperture it is amazing in low light and just swallows up light from everywhere. It produces beautiful portrait photos and as a wedding photographer it is a great lens to use in low light situations without resorting to flash. I cannot say enough good things about this lens.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I cannot recommend highly enough
By Keith 10net
The only complaint I have is that I didn't buy it sooner.
one of the best lens ever.
I was scared to buy this lens, because everyone was saying its slow focus. Let me tell you, this lens is the best lens I ever had and it stays on my camera 95% of the time.

Amazing results once you learn how
About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast
I considered the Sigma f1.4, but the lure or the red ring and the hype about this lens was just too much. It's still early days and many photos have ended up in the trash, but once you really learn how to compose a close up portrait and understand just how shallow the depth of field really is close up, the results are fantastic.

I love this lens. it's made a big difference to my work. the Depth of Field is the only reason you'd buy this lens and that's because it's insane. ver very nice outcome for portrait, product etc. my only concern with the lens is slow auto focus. Also because it's f1.2 it's hard to get it right to begin with. VERY easy to focus on wrong part of face. but with a days practice you get much better and it pays off!

What's not to like?
from West Midlands
This lens looks wonderful on the camera and when you start using it, it doesn't disappoint. Wide open at 1.2 it isolates the subject from the background with an attractive softness. It gets sharper at 1.8. This is a lovely walking about lens on my 5D and my only comment about that is that the partnership is a little heavy.I love this lens and it stays on the camera unless I have a pressing need to fit something else. Would I recommend it? Oh yes. It's a 1.2 for goodness sake. What's not to love about that. Well, it does struggle to find a focus occasionally in really bad light, but since the light is usually really, really bad when that happens and when it does focus the image is wonderful, it's worth the wait.

Awesome. . . . no ifs, buts or maybes!
By Jee Jay
This arrived yesterday and by then end of this week it will have paid for itself. It's that good for some of the pictures I need. I have it fitted to a 1D and the combination of the two together is so outstanding I can't imagine it getting any better. The construction feels like the real deal (heavy and solid just like the 1D) and the images from the combined pairing are razor sharp. If you can afford it, don't think twice. Get it!

Sharp, but not that sharp!
No IS so watch your speed if shooting on the hoof. Considering the price it was not as sharp as expected when compared to a 24-105 f4 L IS. Have tried micro adjustment but it is best at 0.

Wished I had bought it years ago
Amazing lens with outstanding quality. Works so well in low light with amazing exposures. DOF is very vey shallow at 1.2 and closer in so be carefull to use 1.2 appropriately. At f2 and above it is miles better than the 1.4
