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: Brightness, bokeh, speed, weight, size, construction, colors, sharpness*

Cons: Sharpness abb good, if you are looking for excellence then RF 50 1.2

Opinion: The lens in question has many advantages including the enviable brightness, a really soft and creamy bokeh reminiscent of the 85 1.2, fast for any moving subject and silent. It has very small weight and dimensions (including hoods), it seems almost pocket-sized even with EF-RF adapter. The construction is L-series, it doesn't rain! It has beautiful colors and in terms of sharpness I must say that I expected worse given the graphs but I can only be satisfied!!!

Pros: Unique 3D rendering, AF, size, weight, brightness, blur, ergonomics

Cons: Price, minimum focusing distance, sharpness, aberrations, 72mm filters, unstabilized,

Opinion: If you are a pixel peeper maniacs of sharpness and optical perfection stay away from this lens, take a 50mm Sigma Art or Canon RF L and you will live serenely. You can stop reading. One could list many things that are not perfect for this goal: there is not enough sharpness, there are many aberrations for example. Yet when you shoot, the 3D rendering it returns is unique. Yield that also remains at f/2 or f/2.8. It will be that slight red-green aberration in the blur that the brain processes as if they were 3D glasses, I don't know but it works! If you do not go into the detail of the pixel but you just look at the photo as a whole you understand it. Dimensions and weight: it is a cap for SLR and very light. It's not a pancake but almost. You can use it on SLR always without feeling imbalances, weight or wrist pain. Fantastic as the only lens for light outputs. You won't believe it but you can also close it at f/8÷11 to make landscapes. Unfortunately it is not stabilized but on the other hand it is very bright and ergonomic. The AF is strongly dependent on the camera body: on 6D the central was good, on the sides less, on 5DIV TOP, in live view with the DPAF and face recognition is a sniper! It follows the subject and always keeps it in focus even at f/1.2 (so I imagine on R how well it behaves). I would have liked a minimum focusing distance a little shorter to be able to get closer to the subject or take some detail and native 77mm filter diameter to share for example ND and CPL with other lenses without having to put adapter rings 72-77. In backlight it is not perfect, you have to be careful not to drop the ghost images on the face of the subject but if you are good at mastering the defects come out of the crazy images! Seeing is believing.

Pros: excellent construction, a must

Cons: for the rest it does not excel at anything

Opinion: I am aware of going against the current compared to the other reviews but in my opinion and for my way of photographing this lens is absolutely not worth the money it costs, bought, kept six months and then resold in a race. The sigma 50 art that I tried, despite being more weight and less bright (although I could not make a direct reffont), seemed to me if not at par, superior in sharpness both in the center and at the edges and costs about half. If we then talk about the charm, the aesthetic and constructive quality, this lens is unrivaled.

Pros: A "unique" 50mm mm, for construction, for aperture and for the poetry he gives in his shots

Cons: It needs a little patience in understanding it and, above all, in the adjustment with the camera body

Opinion: Used with the 5ds I was not thrilled then, once mounted on the 1dx, everything changed. Even at full opening it maintains an unexpected definition of the details that combines with the blurred in a unique way, in that way that made it famous despite having several lustres on its shoulders. In portraits I have always preferred the 135mm and also the 70/200 F2.8 but now that he has found in the 1DX his "ideal girlfriend" I fear that he will have his well-deserved recovery
