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: 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

Pros: Excellent construction, weight and sense of robustness, blur dreamlike

Cons: I can't find any because I knew what lens it was

Opinion: My favorite portrait lens. Every shot at 1.2 gave me fairytale portraits. Ready-made files without any need for post production. A legendary lens that ranks at the top of the genre "soft portrait" (pass me the term) when used at maximum apertures. Closing the slats we move from a soft character to a sharper and engraved one while maintaining a dream blur. In short, it is like having two goals in one. This feature in my opinion makes it unique in its kind. For a multifaceted portraitist it is impossible not to wish to have it!!! Legend, myth, unattainable!!! No longer doing portraiture I separate myself with enormous regret, I hope that those who will have it after me will get enormous satisfaction.

Pros: af , bright , saturated and battered colors , adaptable on canon R

Cons: it is not an apodized lens like the recent ones that claim to be 1.2 or 0.95 and then they are so correct that it filters a light as if they were diaphragmed at 1.8

Opinion: if you are looking for a perfect lens, look elsewhere .. if you look in my gallery you will find a comparison with the sigma 105 art 1.4 used at TA compared to the big one 85, not only the big one was brighter, but it blur more with that half stop of gain, reasoning a 105 being longer should blur more and instead the 135 L f 2 did even better than the sigma. In the end I decided to buy this 50 1.2 to match it with my beloved 135 L on a humble canon rp where I always remain fully satisfied even for dynamic photos .

Pros: Blurred dream, color rendering, quantity and quality of midtones from higher category optics, lightweight to be a 1.2 autofocus.

Cons: For me nothing.

Opinion: It is my favorite lens, and I say this also owning the 35mm f1.4 L I and the 85mm 1.2 L II which are two equally magnificent glasses. I come from the Sigma 50mm Art and the Canon full aperture sharpness apart is superior in every other respect. Sharp enough at 1.2 but with a micro contrast ("3D pop", "zeiss pop", "leica rendering", call it what you like) already so high as to overshadow the sharpness of which the optics is capable, in a portrait head shoulder to 1.2 the pixels seem to disappear in favor of "an infinite detail" in the rendering of tones, difficult to explain, it must be tried. The quality of the blurred is clearly phenomenal, but it is especially the transition from fire to blurred, things just out of focus do not appear out of focus, but as if wrapped in an aura of magical softness. Do not be frightened by those who speak badly because the optics are not made to shoot brick walls or optical sights but the surrounding world. Not only is it sharp enough already at full aperture, but at 1.2 it makes it good even with fire distances around 10 meters, at these distances it does not knead everything as the little brother 1.4 does. If you want a little more sharpness and focus / blur detachment just close at 1.6 or 1.8 without affecting too much the character of the lens, which instead from f2 upwards changes to become much more "correct" and obviously sharp. I personally use it almost always at full aperture, except if I have to shoot groups that touch the edges of the frame (and there f2 honestly is enough) or close up, where I close a little to avoid an excessive "fog" effect. The autofocus is fast and precise, certainly more precise than the Sigma 50mm Art. On my 5D mkIV it did not need any calibration and makes very little mistakes even at full aperture, while on my R6 it is practically never wrong. If I really have to find the negative sides are those typical of ultra bright optics not very correct: a bit of distortion (correctable with a click) and extreme edges never super sharp, but it is a problem only if you take this lens to make only landscape, having said that I also do landscape without any patema of soul, it has colors and a rendering engraved from f2 up that I see only in the other fixed series L. Aberrazioni in conditions of strong contrast there are but to me they do not give boredom, also because you have to know how to shoot and there is no optics that holds if you want to insist on shooting with a light unsuitable for the purpose and delegate everything to the post. I prefer this lens to the 85 because the latter is already too "hard" from 1.2, but they are simply personal preferences, as they are two equally legendary lenses, compared to the 35 L instead the 50 L I find it superior to full aperture on distant subjects (full figure portrait). But in general they are three fixed ones that return a very coherent aesthetic with each other and are perfect to use as a trio. That said, it is an optics that for what it offers is at a very honest price on the used and I do not find it at all heavy even for intense use
