Product Reviews
Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 38reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best overall lens? This is a very good piece of lens! It weigh quite a bit and its quite thick, but no problem there. Compared to other lenses I've tried, this one feels really stable, well built and massive. It screams quality all the way!The 1.2 aperture of course allows for really soft bokeh and amazingly dramatic images. I use this one for portraits as well as environment photography and would definitely describe it as one of the best overall lenses out there!The negative things is... that the auto focus is quite slow and I often feel that it has a quite hard time to get the focus, even with clear motives. Another thing that I experienced by using the 5DsR (and NOT with the 5D MKII) is that in some lights, with some settings, the lens gives a hideous chromatic aberration. But if you know how to handle it, it shouldn't be a problem. April 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best lens I bought it several days ago, and it's definitely excellent when shooting a person. F/1.2 Lens is undoubtedly better than F/1.8 lens I used before. It's worth buying! March 30, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Broke I owned the lens for 3 months and the auto-focus just stopped working. The servo continuously searched for focus. Used other Canon lenses with same subject and tack sharp results. I returned for a full refund and will now use my much less expensive 50mm f/1.8. To bad. It is otherwise and AWESOME piece of glass. I may some day return..... February 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 50 mm 1.2 I bought this lens a couple of days ago I am very impressed wit it so far.It is very sharp,good color and contrast. February 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sharp! Amazing in low light! Love the bokeh! Having use several Canon L lenses, this was my first prime. It's been incredible and has quickly become a favorite lens. January 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hello All Great Lens a little pricey but ohhh the pictures. As an observation one might want to mention which camera they use this lens with. I shoot a 7D and I don't have any focus issues. Yes it shoots FAST- I would recommend this as a good lens with the 7D- but I do not know how it operates with other cameras I have used this combo for action photos, landscapes, and portraits-- al with great results. it takes a little while to master the razor thin focus wide open, but you get great results-- I plan to purchase a 6d FULL FRAME and I am sure the results will be superb Thank you Buy this lens and if you don't like it then sell it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutely amazing! Whatever composition I want to achieve when taking video, the Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM does the rest! With the newly installed Dual Pixel AF in my C100, I am taking my work to a higher level. I must admit, I wish the prices were more competitive though. I already spent a fortune on 4 Canon EF L series fast lenses. April 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by It put most of my other lens on the shelf I am not a one to write reviews but this one made me do it. After seeing pictures that I took with this lens I am having hard time using any other of my lens. I was looking for something that would make my portraits sweeter and dreamier and this lens surpassed expectations. Maybe next step will be 85 1.2 (no, definitely) but for now I have or know of no other lens for my gear that gives so much color and dreams and character to my pictures. What I was looking for. If you need sweet smiles with sparkling eyes looking out of a creamy bokeh and surrounded with outstanding outdoor colors, that is it. December 5, 2014
