Review - Canon EF 50mm 1.2L USM

(1/2) > >>

Here's is my real world review of the 50L.

You've read my thoughts that it's about time for the review to appear  ;)

P.S. Thank you for writing it  :)

Great review, cheers for posting  :)

I recently moved to Canon from Nikon and this was the lens I purchased with the 5d III.  I love this lens!!

Really good examples of this lens in your review. My concern about the 50L is this: At 2.5x the price of the 50mm f/1.4, shouldn't it give at least 2.5x the performance improvement? It doesn't, especially at wider apertures. I would at least expect it to be sharper than the f/1.4 wide open, but clearly it is not. Where the 50L really shines, though, is the quality of the bokeh shooting that wide. The 50mm f/1.4 can't even touch it. In that respect, a photographer is better off getting the 50L if they depend on that kind of background blur.

Having said all of that, I would in no way turn one down if somebody wanted to give me one.  :)
