A lens you learn to love.
By Tumbling Sheep
About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast
Comments about Canon EF 50mm f1.2L USM Lens:
With paper thin DOF wide open, it takes some time and effort to get to know how to use this lens to it's full potential. However, I have to say it's worthi the effort. Get it right and the results are stunning. F1.2 isn't necessary, or even desirable for most shots, but for natural light photography in difficult situations it really is a remarkable lens giving the most beautiful Bokeh.For a busy event photographer it might just be too much trouble, but if you have the time to consider your shots and can take a few moments to consider your camera settings you will be handsomely rewarded with the most remarkable images.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Exactly what I thought it would be like. Silky smooth bokeh, and as sharp as I need it to be.

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.

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
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.
