Pros: all blurred brightness

Cons: a little hail, and not crystal clear

Opinion: I have this lens for quite some days and I was amazed at the great. blurred which makes it addictive, the three-dimensionality that provides makes you drool :), then buy another one thousand times, and no confornto with the remaining 50mm 1.4 that are around, art or not art, this is a 1.2 and is one and only! I could sell the kit and be alone with this :) .. I hope not by potergli also complement the 24 or 35 .. rn

pubblicata da Donato Romagnuolo June 24, 2014

Pros: lightness, brightness, AF, sharpness, Defocused

Cons: price distortion

Opinion: a great lens no doubt about it. a bit expensive and a bit difficult to use at all apertua if you do not have a proper light ... rnnotato an unpleasant distortion in the picture in the first piano.rnl 'perspective is very handy and easy to use ... often without a hood because outside when it enters into a bit of light gives a pleasant flare.rndiverso of his younger brothers, 50 mm, for those who can afford it is to buy assolutamente.rn

pubblicata da Filiberto June 01, 2014

Pros: Among the super bright Canon is the one with the most spectacular yield.

Cons: Among the super bright Canon is the one with the graphs of the worst Photozone & C..

Opinion: I've already said everything in the pros and cons, so the 50L is the most controversial of Canon optics. There is magic and that says who says that is the stuff of fetishists. I say that after the hangover of Otus and Sigma super hyper correct and solving some year between the super bright series The Canon will be sought and paid their weight in gold, so if someone who has to keep them tight!! ! Forget the charts and take some pictures to believe it.

pubblicata da Albertochicco April 21, 2014

Pros: Spectacular! a sharp knife ...! blurred by fear! and addictive!

Cons: not easy to use ...

Opinion: lens space ... from another planet! nice! light! a little bold and also by galvanizing appearance! addictive! one blurred by fear! nice! and that a lot of satisfaction! unfortunately .... and maybe even a PRO ... it is not easy to use, the diaphragm 1.2 does not forgive. rnUsato hard to find / trovare.Lente MUST HAVE.rnpeccato for the price UPPER but he deserves ALL the money spent!

pubblicata da Bibols February 27, 2014

Pros: Blurred by fear! Impressive three-dimensional, full-color rendering and pasty.

Cons: Embarrassing chromatic aberration in high-contrast scenes at large apertures.

Opinion: 6igrave; f/1.2 with other optics, such as the old Rokkor 58mm f/1.2 for Minolta a time that was, which, beyond the various difficulties focus on Canon, presents no aberrations so marcate.rnMa apart from all this, is that I find unmatched perspective to interpret a subject, or a detail of a subject, exalting him out of context and making it protagonista.rnrn

pubblicata da Shotofgod February 20, 2014

Pros: Bokeh, AF, Opening! RnNon takes pictures but paints ..

Cons: To not using it until today ..

Opinion: After a session of 400 shots I can afford to comment on this point that it is not easy to tame. After reading around I decided to buy it to complete my outfit, the use of 5d mk3 with fullest satisfaction, really I have no words to best describe this lens, I honestly had always toed mounted on my camera but the latter remain in your bag for a long time I guess :) A fantastic optics that makes every photo unique, if you get in tune I think nobody can help it, I did not think I would take so much after using for a few days .. 50 1.8 The I highly recommend, you will not regret!

pubblicata da Franky.ski January 20, 2014

Pros: It 'a lens with exceptional characteristics. At f1.2 has a rendition of "poetic" (with this is to say that donates one blurred and unparalleled contrast - in the area in focus - that does not weigh down the photo). If you diaphragm (from f3.2/5.6) there is a three-dimensional image to be delighted.

Cons: The only counter that can move is the price (if taken in Italy following the Italian channels). Otherwise has no cons.

Opinion: I have this lens for about seven months before writing my impression I wanted to wait a while 'to understand it. In fact, for those coming from the zoom (24-70 f2.8 and 70-200 f2.8) to switch to a fixed may be initially painful, it should read in the need to build the frame because of the focus and not the possibility to use the zoom to build it (more easily). rnEbbene, after having taken his hand, I can confirm all the positive aspects that you read about and, for negative I can refute those seguito.rnIl Bokeh lens is one that offers the of the best (along with 85 f1.2 that surpasses it for the obvious reasons why a lens with a longer focal length royal fuzzy greater at full aperture). rnPer weight and bulk I just say: you had a neck 24-70 f2 .8 L? In relation to the weight of this lens (which use for obvious reasons), and the machine body (5D MkIII) the cinquantino irrisorio.rnPer is the "softness" to the entire opening or the difficulty of focus, same as for the tempor need to familiarize yourself with the lente.rnDa last say, with an example, that Ferrari is an excellent machine, but those looking for what Ferrari did not deem it did not live up to what is required! rnCiaorn

pubblicata da Cetolino January 14, 2014

Pros: Poetic, very crisp when closed, AF.

Cons: Bokeh horrendous at times, faint open.

Opinion: The most difficult task I have ever used. A yield erratic, almost moody. It can transform an ordinary image into poetry as a significant ruin with its flaws that sometimes become added value. I speak of the lack of sharpness open, but in particular its bokeh very particular that transforms the pictures according to the light and the background, hard and nervous sometimes, poetic other. Not the've never understood and I sold it at the end of the regretted it.

pubblicata da Ermannocazzola December 20, 2013

Pros: Lightweight, compact, pleasant to the touch, sharp enough at f / 1,4 in relation to the type of lens, very fast.

Cons: of course if the price was lower than most would like, but obviously part of the game ... if you do not have enough money, that's fine also the younger brother f / 1.4

Opinion: All describe heavy but for me it is absolutely ... indeed, coming from 85 f / 1,2 I find it even lighter and comodo.rnLo already knew from a previous purchase, at the time I did not like but then increased my knowledge of the camera and now I find I really wanted tanto.rnNon defects particular, I consider the perspective ambientati for portraits and reportage ... then the sharpness is not the most important factor ... but the blurred and his pleasure in the colors are its real strength ... then if you close the aperture to f / 2, then things change dramatically and it is also used for still life and architecture, but in those diaphragms advice Brother f / 1,4 which results from turning a little to the almost famous identici.rnRispetto 85 f / 1,2 flaw just a little bit at full aperture for sharpness but especially for aberrations evident when the light is strong ... even in low-light situations aberrations svaniscono.rnrnrnun suggestion: to shoot in low light series of 5:01, I highly recommend the use of Canon St-E2with its infrared helps the MAF ... or the flash in IR mode but is much heavier

pubblicata da Lorenzo Pastori November 28, 2013

Pros: Bokeh, creamy texture, feeling, and ex ... immediate satisfaction.

Cons: Never have I had until yesterday.

Opinion: I have read everything before you buy it. And 'if you buy a lens that you know what you want, and what does such a choice (time AF, the minimum pdc etc ...). When put hands in their pockets, mounted on the FF and realized that it's really yours, you forget that you have other lenses. All of them. But I think that is a lens which must approach after doing some obligatory steps, made of kit, techniques and passion, why not. Otherwise the risk is that you might not fully appreciate (or at all). Highly recommended. After 50 1.2 L you have to wonder what it might be in terms of ... libidine.rnE think that some (not many thankfully) consider him the idiot brother dell'85L ...

pubblicata da Luca Sacco November 18, 2013

Pros: Three-dimensional, brightness, color, strength.

Cons: Not to use it every day.

Opinion: I was hesitant because of the price but I'm glad I bought it a few days ago, it is amazing! I get better at using it than with a hypothetical 85 1.2 for its greater field of view, and after taking some close-ups and especially narrow environments ... well ... I continued for hours in disbelief brightness. I come from the 50 1.4 but this is another way of doing photography. I read any review of comparison between the two and in many cases it is said that the difference is minimal, but you kidding???? Oh 50 1.4 is great but ... the colors and especially the almost poetic Bokeh 1 .2 leave you speechless. Does not seem to suffer from the absence of the IS, and its weight is less than 85, then good buy and I will be glued to my 5D MK3 for quite a while '!

pubblicata da Dreamland November 13, 2013

Pros: Excellent focus and great colors, three-dimensional construction.

Cons: Too soft to TA

Opinion: This lens was my cue ball for a year and then I decided to make the madness and take it, to keep company to the first and 40d 5d MkII poi.rnLa building is typical of the series L, no objection, rings and fluid precise.rnUtilizzandolo it is evident the absolute quality of the focus, the three-dimensionality of the images and a fantastic color rendition. Autofocus silent, precise and fast even in low condiizoni illuminazione.rnPecca in sharpness to TA, where I honestly expected something più.rnrn

pubblicata da Giacomo75 March 23, 2013

Pros: Brightness, Cut Plans, Construction, Auto Focus, Color

Cons: Difficulty using a TA

Opinion: It 'a lens very interesting, you can buy for use primarily in TA and play with lights, floors and the environment that surrounds the lens and the photographer. Like all optical extremes is not the immediate feeling, many photos are blurred given the openness of 1.2, but with practice you get very personal and unique pictures. With this in mind than shooting situations are created, you can create a atmosphere that you can hardly describe. It is not an optical absolute detail, this is not trying to split in two the hair, this light will, and I think it succeeds well if you know how to use, proiettarti in the picture as a whole, in its atmosphere, in its entirety perhaps highlighting anything in particular, but everything in his engaging together. Highly recommended to learn how to take pictures and to search for photos from the pack, very personal, maybe not everyone may like but certainly unique and exciting. The cost of a safe investment.

pubblicata da Gozilla November 22, 2012

Pros: Construction, characteristics of fuzzy, three-dimensional images.

Cons: Weight and size, but it is a defect?

Opinion: And 'one of those lenses that are tested to fully appreciate. The cost is high, but as soon as you touch it you feel the quality of the materials and impeccable construction. Also possess the Canon 50 1.4, and if under the optical appearance by stopping the results seem similar, they are "animals" different. The focus is particular dream I would say, especially wide open, and in the end I made this purchase for its use in these conditions. Anyone looking for a bright 50 to use on the road or street can in my opinion be on version 1.4, but those who seek the very characteristics for which it was built, budget permitting, is not to be missed. Always shooting in raw, and developing the files with DPP using "digital optimization goal," the results that I see make me forget the cost of this glass.

pubblicata da Giallo63 July 20, 2012

Pros: Bokeh, three-dimensional, plasticity, tonal richness, construction

Cons: Sharpness outlying areas to greater openness, weight and size, curvature of field

Opinion: A lens with a strong personality. Anyone looking for a razor and a view to playing those planes and geometric savings over a thousand euro and buy the macro f 50/2, 5. Those who want to create images in natural light with a strong three-dimensional and rich tonal transitions and for the richness of colors, at home, Canon can not find anything better. At full aperture the sharpness is acceptable only in a small central area, drops dramatically in peripheral areas: in some areas it is completely acceptable and normal, in others not, but we would be out of the design requirements of a target as well. Already a stop closure (f: 1.8) yield is impeccable and far superior to that of the two 50mm less bright. By f: 3.5 on the micro-rears even in very remote areas, and are not the most obvious effects of spherical aberration and field curvature. An additional benefit of this is that the pleasantness of the blurred remains still high even at diaframmature more generous merit at all unusual and it definitely separates - for the better - the other two 50mm to list (I do not consider the 50 macro because it has - logically and coherently - a project, say, diametrically opposed to 50/1, 2 L).

pubblicata da Adi July 04, 2012

Pros: L-Series quality, high brightness, blurred background extraordinary, fast, quiet autofocus, Super Spectra coatings, vivid images with high fidelity.

Cons: No.

Opinion: It is a perspective that helps me to create forms and unpublished experimental configuration of light and especially to seize new relationships between things, putting in conditions to face in a more conscious perceptual shocks from a world increasingly permeated by technology. Excellent results portray exploiting it to the max at full-frame camera bodies, for me is a wonderful lens in its insieme.rnrnAdrian

pubblicata da Nik56 June 20, 2012

Pros: A lens magnificent super super recommended the purchase and I just 'a marvel ideal for portraits and then close a thread, and the diaphragm are overviews From fairytale

Cons: Maybe a little pesantino the only real problem '......... not having

Opinion: another perfect optical I bought 85 1.2. The 24 1.4 50 1.2 and now this. I would say three optical thrilling and if once Leica looked at all from the top front of these three lions not there more history to anyone Even so, you get used to space these three objectives and 'really a small problem that short time you get used to conclude 50 and 1.2 'cnsigliatissimoooooo!!! and 'beautiful
