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)

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).

Claudio Molin
Pros: Laying of floors; opening; bokeh; sharpness

Cons: Not having it in stock

Great lens, floor clearing is great and has no equal. RnMolte reviews give it less clear than 50mm Sigma, it may be, but the MF is spectacular, fast, precise.rn I use it on FF and I have to say that I often go out with this optic and return home always satisfied, great everything Do, quality.rn

Pros: Super sharpness. Fantastic Bokeh. AF lightning. Fantastic colors and poetic set.

Cons: Nobody.

It's a great lens. Very sharp even at TA. Never experienced any problems in this regard. His bokeh has no equal. It's pure poetry. The chromatic rendering is superb. It works well in any light condition and not just for portrait. An absolutely lightning strike makes it very versatile. In my opinion, it is not just about working on 1.2. It is also superb closing. In short, it can not be argued and the files that make me confirm it every time. A 1.2 manages to interpret reality as only he can do. RnCerto is not economical but all the rest that is in production does not reach its magic. Lens to be absolutely.

Andrea Ighina
Pros: Defocused, manageable, constructive, three-dimensional

Cons: It is expensive

I bought this lens after holding the Sigma art focal point for a year and a half.rnI always read the magic, the dimensionality of the blur and the difficulty of using it properly.rnI am well pleased with the choice made, with the sigma never snapped The right feeling above the size and the weight.rnWith the 50 1.2 it's true the first snapshots stay a bit interrupted, it takes time and patience. Often you make mistakes but on occasions where you are "lucky" Then it repays you with really magic shots. It is not free from easy fixable defects, excellent sharpness (albeit with absolute interest), no-frills speed, and it's a pleasure to focus even manually.rn

Stefano Bacch
Pros: Blurred, three-dimensional, construction, brightness, focus, colors, .... everything

Cons: Adds dependence

After reading a lot of reviews and reviews I bought it used by a forum user. What if you do not "love the first photo". As soon as it gets in hand it gives a feeling of robustness and precision very good, the focus is quick, precise and determined, the colors are beautiful full, vivid at the right point (to my liking), the blurry sublime returns a feeling Pictorial, and f1.2 is just as clear! If you buy it for sharpness at large apertures there are more appealing alternatives (sigma?), Much sticker to 1.2 (I adore it!) But after fine calibration in the room, it gives you images that make you forget these little bumps . Perfect for portraits set to full-length and for playing with colors and blurry. The only real flaw is the addiction that creates ...... it's hard to detach it from the camera. My vote can not be that 10 with praise !!
