Pros: enchanting bokeh, impressive MAF precision, excellent sharpness already at f1.2, total absence of flare, gradual and strong detachment of the planes without reaching the sticky figure effect, presence of the programmable control ring, solid and tropicalized construction, 77mm filters, non-existent distortion.

Cons: Heavy (but quite in line with its f1.2 counterparts: the Sony weighs 172 grams less and the Nikon 140 more), bulkier than the Canon EF 50 f1.2 (but it is in line with its counterparts, practically identical to the Sony GM but definitely more compact than the Nikon Z), high price.

Opinion: In a self-respecting kit, a 50 f1.2 cannot be missing. The Canon RF 50 f1.2 collects a heavy legacy, that of the Canon EF 50 f1.2 lens that boasts a huge audience of admirers (including me) and detractors because it was a lens full of optical defects that, in the eyes of admirers, were poetry while in the eyes of detractors they were... optical defects. This Canon RF 50 f1.2 totally differs from its predecessor as it is a super correct and razor-sharp lens already at TA. In Canon's currently produced lenses, the f1.2 aperture is the brightest and is currently reserved for only two lenses, the Canon RF 50 f1.2 and the Canon RF 85 f1.2. This aperture gives photographers and filmmakers the ability to shoot low-light subjects at relatively low ISO with an extremely shallow depth of field, a great way to isolate a subject from its background. Having such large apertures allows you to use fast shutter speeds even in low light conditions, freezing, as a result, both the movement of the subject and the camera shake that could cause microblur (when shooting with a mechanical shutter). The MAF Ring-USM system, also used in Canon's Supertele cameras, smoothly moves the large optical elements of the RF 50 f1.2 allowing for fast and accurate focusing that allows you to easily track subjects as they move through the frame. It was the first 50 f1.2 of the new generation (the Canon came out in 2018, the Nikon Z in 2020 and the Sony GM in 2021) and, compared to the Canon EF 50 f1.2, it stands out for its exemplary sharpness and the absence of any optical defect that, on the other hand, characterized its predecessor. In particular, the total absence of flare even with the sun totally inside the lens is striking. The sharpness at f1.2 is already excellent as well as the contrast across the entire frame, including the extreme corners. Closing the aperture to f2 produces a slight increase in sharpness, which at f2.8 already reaches its maximum. The vignetting is present at f1.2 but it is pleasant and gradually fades when the aperture is closed to disappear definitively at f4. On the side of the lens barrel, there are two switches. One gives direct control over AF/MF (always appreciated) and the other is a focus limiter. The latter is a bit unusual for a 50mm lens, but the RF 50 L is able to focus at a slightly shorter distance than many 50mm (40cm) lenses and has a very useful maximum magnification of 0.19x. The use of MAF's limiter offers a significant difference in the rate of fire acquisition. Distortion is, quite simply, non-existent. If you love the ultra-fast 50mm focal length it is a must have in the Canon system, for me it is an antithetical lens and, therefore, complementary to the Canon EF 50 f1.2 and, therefore, I keep them both supplied.

Pros: Sharpness, bokeh, speed, colors, programmable bezel, MAF distance selector, flare resistance, low vignetting

Cons: Price and Weight, of course; Hood a bit bulky

Opinion: Taken only because it was a good opportunity, otherwise I would have stayed with the old EF 50mm f1.2. Oh, and because there's no RF 50mm f1.4 yet and the RF 50mm f1.8 isn't really the best. That said, it excels in everything: the sharpness is already high at TA, the bokeh is creamy more than a pudding, it is fast with moving subjects, it has L-series colors, the programmable ring is very useful and versatile, the MAF distance selector helps a lot, the flare resistance is really very good and makes me leave the hood at home which is a bit too large, the vignetting is very contained both at TA and at closed diaphragms. I like that the lens retracts and does not always remain uncovered so as to avoid bumps with edges.

Pros: Construction, brightness, sharpness and blurry at the top. Always to be used in TA or almost.

Cons: price and ... maybe weight, but it keeps well coupled to the R series that have a good handle.

Opinion: I haven't taken many shots yet, but I can say: a lens you would never take out of the camera body. It's a show to use. With little light coupled to the R6 he takes photos in "impossible" situations. Even with the R it is super thanks also to the higher resolution. I give Canon credit for making a lens with attributes. I saw the proof of photographer Daniel Etter who with Eos R and RF 50mm f1.2 L photographed the dark and archaic conditions of the Romanian coal mines: well, I tried to simulate those conditions in the house and really the lens impressed me. It's worth all the money spent.

Pros: Pretty much everything. The most surprising thing is that at f/1.2 it is already a blade.

Cons: In servo AF and in poor light conditions it takes two or three seconds to hook but not always.

Opinion: I've been using it on EOS R for about two weeks now and it's pure enjoyment. Now you can photograph it in the evening or in artificial light without the fear of having out-of-focus or sharp shots. Chromatic aberration practically absent, low vignetting, construction and feeling at the top. I was afraid that it was too bulky or unbalanced instead I notice that having the maximum weight in the center does not tire much. I also use it with crop in the car 1.6 becoming an 80mm and I see no difference in results compared to full use. As far as the other thing is concerned, it is not a big problem and you get used to it straight away, and I think the delay of those two or three seconds is due to the lack of light, because it does not always happen. Ultimately we are talking about an exciting lens that makes you fall in love with photography again.
