Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best overall lens?This is a very good piece of lens! It weigh quite a bit and its quite thick, but no problem there. Compared to other lenses I've tried, this one feels really stable, well built and massive. It screams quality all the way!The 1.2 aperture of course allows for really soft bokeh and amazingly dramatic images. I use this one for portraits as well as environment photography and would definitely describe it as one of the best overall lenses out there!The negative things is... that the auto focus is quite slow and I often feel that it has a quite hard time to get the focus, even with clear motives. Another thing that I experienced by using the 5DsR (and NOT with the 5D MKII) is that in some lights, with some settings, the lens gives a hideous chromatic aberration. But if you know how to handle it, it shouldn't be a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Minimum Lighting & Maximum ColorationThe Canon 50 f/1.2 exceeds my expectations for detail and coloration: It is also difficult for me to focus at night in low light conditions. At night the auto-focus searches, manual focus is better but far from easy to accomplish. I have had best results at night using manual focus, f/1.2, ISO auto, the U/V filter removed to avoid lens-flare, and this is on the 5D MII. This lens works well in the daylight with the normal daylight f-stops. Using a B+W circular polarizer will add a nice depth to daylight shooting while hiking. The images from this lens seem to be of a higher quality than those shot at the 50mm setting on either the 24-70mm L, or the 24-105 L lenses. Canon prime lenses are worth the trouble of renting and examining in your individual shooting conditions: I found them of value to me as a landscape photographer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My FavoriteI couldn't be happier with this lens. This was clearly my best lens decision and would purchase again in a heart beat if it was ever lost or stolen. Can't say I would do the same with some of my other L glass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ExcellentI love 50mm on full-frame. I've been successfully using the Canon 50mm f/1.4 lens for years. I've always been curious about this lens. My primary use is landscape photography. Very simply, this lens is exceptional. This is a professional lens in all aspects. It delivers at all apertures. f/1.4 to f/16 is where it really shines. It creates beautiful photos. There is a difference. Photos just have a subtle look and feel that I did not see in my Canon 50mm f/1.4 lens. I highly recommend this lens for professional photography.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Beautiful LensThe luminosity, contrast and color rendering can only be compared to another great lens, the 85MM 1.2L,I've read reviews that claim is not the sharpest< with all due respect and honesty " I don't know what they're talking about, this lens is razor sharp from f2.8 on" and sharp enough at it's super widest aperture of F1.2...... If you know how to use it, you will be very pleased at every aperture, then again you have to know how to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightning fastIn a lens fight the 50mm 1.2 would be my first choice. Big, ultra fast and very good looking lens. Creating works of art in photography any L lens would be great to have. And the 50 1.2 has the potential for creative works or art in photography. I had this lens for one month and only beginning to see impressive results in image quality. The colors achieved at f1.2 are amazing. Creating works of art is doable with this lens. Any Canon 50mm is a good choice, but the big 50L is worth the experience. And if it works for you at your level of expertise then keep it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It put most of my other lens on the shelfI am not a one to write reviews but this one made me do it. After seeing pictures that I took with this lens I am having hard time using any other of my lens. I was looking for something that would make my portraits sweeter and dreamier and this lens surpassed expectations. Maybe next step will be 85 1.2 (no, definitely but for now I have or know of no other lens for my gear that gives so much color and dreams and character to my pictures. What I was looking for. If you need sweet smiles with sparkling eyes looking out of a creamy bokeh and surrounded with outstanding outdoor colors, that is it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lensHey, I am in love with this lens. Great bokeh, perfect lens for weddings. I admit that I did not believe the reviews written about this glass ... As for me, is a true miracle! Photos look just like a fairy tale. Do not remove the glass body. I do not regret a penny spent on the glass - the lens for years.
