Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM

ef50lusm
Review Date: Oct 9, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: DOF, sharpness.
Cons:
None yet

Upgraded from the 50 1.4 which I had been very happy with but you really do get what you pay for, the sharpness, DOF, bokeh is far better. I had read all the reviews and comments about back focus and was wary about this purchase but as it was a refurbished lens I figured any mechanical problems would have been corrected, but I honestly don't know if they have been as there were some focusing issues. Some shots using the outer AF focus points on a 5D may have been slightly out but the ones with the centre AF were pin sharp and much faster than I expected. I am very happy with this lens already and glad I upgraded.

Pros: Value for money low light lens
Cons:
None

I love this lens and have had great results both inside and out on a 5D. Having read all the reviews, I am glad I bought this and not the 1.2L regardless of the saving.
