Pros: Pleasing and soft bokeh (rounded aperture blades), very good contast and colors, solid construction, not too heavy, good and usable image quality even wide open, very good and sharp at f/2. The only 50mm lens with f/1.2 (but that's only 1/3 stop brighter than f/4) ;-)

Cons: Very expensive (compared to other brands), not as sharp as newer constructions form Sigma, visible reddish CAs (but that's part of its typical image look)

Opinion: much better and sharper than I expected since its image quality was criticised in many tests and forums. Of all Canon 50mm lenses this is by far the sharpest lens between open aperture and f2! With its high contrast, vivid colors and its pleasing bokeh (rounded aperture blades) it delivers very harmonic images. My most used lens for indoor available light photography since I purchased it in 2010. AF is fast but a little slower then most other USM L-Lenses. Solid constuction with weather sealing (if used with filter). But a very expensive lens. Today the new Sigma 50mm f/1.4 ART lens could be the better choice (even sharper and less expensive).

Pros: Color, three-dimensional, blurred magical and poetic

Cons: Price, sharpness at TA, difficult to handle requires experience

Opinion: Not much to add to the other reviews, I confirm how very special detto.E'un'ottica that requires patience and experience to be exploited to massimo.Le pictures vary greatly depending on the light presente.Il price definitely is not for everyone but if you like the photos that churns not miss it, it is definitely a unique experience! I use it on 5DIII and I have not found the AF problems, either with central or side with

Pros: Three-dimensionality, blurry, magic

Cons: Fast and precise autofocus, price

Opinion: Almost convinced to buy the Nikkor AF-S 58mm1.4, this lens has been for me a dilemma for a long time, so that eventually I gave in and attached to the kit Nikon Canon kit just to be able to own ... and after that the first two months I spent in cursing them. When I accepted his faults, frustrating at times, speed and precision AF, especially flanked to my 6D whose evil is coupled from this point of view, love blossomed. It is not a monster of sharpness and TA is a bit 'soft considering its price, but the overall detail is good if the scope of use, then in my opinion the only one for him, is the picture set, otherwise there better at much lower costs. Beyond the blurred, always very pleasant but in some cases a little ' "confused" and "nervous" especially when there are objects "repetitive", such as leaves, grass, etc. not far from the fire floor, colore magnificent and I find it very "artistic" even pushed against the light, pulling out all his magic and personality are not limited as other lenses to a general loss of contrast and detail, as long as we know how to manage unwanted reflections of certain angles. If he had a metal barrel instead of plastic, it would be better, so I leave a reservation on the quality of construction, it is also generally pleasant, perhaps tones too hot hair that require more work in post in the correction when shooting indoors under artificial lights , but it is my personal impression and, above all, my fault having no desire to make the pre-snap white balance. A must for the environmental portrait, although too expensive

Pros: With optical clarity and strength unmatched color rendering

Cons: nobody

Opinion: The 50mm is the lens for me the main use in virtually any situation is always mounted on one of my two rooms, and this view is the best I have ever experienced, the main difference from Canon versions 1.8 and 1.4 is the focus , much more precise on 50mm is a view that never misses a shot, logically over sharpness, color rendering and quality construction. In my opinion that is all that costa.rnrn

Pros: Robustness and manageability, sharpness even at room temperature (about 5D MIII)

Cons: nobody

Opinion: If you like the pictures or photos ambientati style reportage and street, for which you need a lens manegevole and fast, here it is the 50 f1.2 optics for you, clearly if mounted on immense body FF.rnQualità to all the openings, do not personally the shot never up to f1.2 unless there is a real need for light, but also in this case the lens behaves in admirable fashion without showing any defect. Going from f1.2 to f1.8 - f2 image quality clearly increases a little ', but the difference is really lieve.rnSu 5D MIII, which bears great high ISO without returning an annoying noise, and shooting at f1.2 ISO 1600 is pretty much more light "day" on a person's face with the light of a candle in a dark room! rnrnLente manegevole compact and with the right weight on the one hand returns precisely feeling of strength, on the other It provides the right balance to the body macchina.rnAutofocus fast (I use almost exclusively the focus spot and of 5D MIII is virtually instantaneously). No stabilizer but absolutely do not feel the need, I do not remember it a shake-out of a picture taken with this lente.rnInsieme all'85mm f1.2 L lens is the brightest by Canon, given that I do not see imaginable dating a "cartridge belt" of objectives, rather all'85mm because the scope of use is more ampio.rnMolti wonder if there is difference of approximately 1000 euro with the younger brother 50mm f1.4, the answer is: it depends on what we expect from their photo. If there are "satisfied" of a good quality then the 50 f1.4 is certainly good, if you want the leap then go to 50 f1.2 is necessario.rnLa difference also highlights firmly in extreme conditions, for as a backlight driven to TA with 50 f1.2 still returns of well-defined contours of the figure and "sharp" with aberrations in control, something different with the 50 f1.4 wherethe contours are noticeably pastosi.rnA I think the lens "normal" is a view that should not be missing in the bag of a photographer (although need for capacity and experience for its use), and from this point of view Canon beyond his concorrenti.rnLente that holds very well the price of used also, and this is an aspect that should be taken into consideration when purchasing.
