The Canon EF 50mm f/1.2 L USM Lens is a standard 50mm lens that’s super fast and that offers an impressively wide aperture. It’s a great low-light performer and ideal for controlling depth of field and shooting indoors without a flash.
The EF 50mm f/1.2 L USM Lens features a Ring-type USM (Ultrasonic motor) that uses ultrasonic frequency vibrations to drive extremely quick auto focus with near-silent operation. Plus a high-speed CPU and improved AF algorithm also help to increase AF speed further. Good holding torque stops the focusing lens group without overshoot, plus full time electronic manual focus override is available without you needing to switch out of AF.
With a large maximum aperture of f/1.2, the EF 50mm f 1.2L USM offers impressive speed for shooting in low light conditions and without you needing to use a flash. The large aperture also gives you precise control over depth of field.
The lens’ circular barrel aperture helps to create attractive, even background bokeh. This helps to isolate subjects at large apertures, making the lens perfect for portrait photography.
Super Spectra lens coatings and lens element shaping helps to suppress flare and ghosting that can occur due to reflection off the camera’s image sensor. These coatings also help to provide true colour balance and increase contrast.
The EF 50mm f/1.2 L USM Lens can pass distance information back to the E-TTL II flash system of a compatible EOS camera, helping to ensure optimal flash metering.
The Canon EF 50mm f/1.2 L USM Lens boasts Canon’s highest quality precision optics, as well as dust and moisture resistant construction. The lens comes with a cylindrical lens hood and a soft case.
