Product Reviews
Canon EF lens - 50 mm is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Rendering I've had this lens for about 18 months and just love it. I've long been a fan of fast 50mm lenses, and own a number of them. This is, by far, the best autofocus fast 50mm I've ever used.I also own and use the Leica 50mm f/0.95 Noctilux M, so my standards for super-speed lenses are very high. Yes, the Leica lens is better, but for what it costs it should be, and of course that one does not have automatic focus.On a 5D mk III this lens focuses quickly and accurately with any focus point, though in very low light the center point is best.My copy was dead-on accurate right out of the box and required no AF microadjust on my camera. I've seen others complain of focus shift at smaller apertures, but I've had no such experience.This lens is expensive for a Canon 50mm, but you really do get what you pay for. Just remember f/1.2 there is very shallow depth of field and it takes practice to learn how to shoot at such wide apertures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I 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 Lens The 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 My Go-To Lens. After owning the f/1.4 and f/1.8 models, I decided to bite the bullet and purchase the f/1.2 model. I am beyond pleased- I wish I had done this earlier. This is a superior lens and my go-to for almost everything. Excellent quality. Love the weight and feel of the lens as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Walking Around Lens This is a wonderful street lens you absolutely cannot go wrong with this lens. Photographs look in perspective the way they were taken. My favorite video to watch about this and other GREAT Canon lenses is 50mm vs 35mm vs 28mm - Best Street Photography Lens

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I do not like this lens! I've had this lens for a couple of years now - when I bought it, I loved it. However, I have every prime L lens by canon from 24mm to 300mm, and this is the softest and most unreliable piece of gear I own. Ready for the second edition, Canon!! I would buy it in a heart beat!

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.
