Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM

ef50lusm
Review Date: Feb 13, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1.60 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: bully build, fast AF, new lens, tack sharp and f/1.2
Cons:
aberration, price

Exceptional lens, excellent build - bully tough, but not too heavy. AF is fast, comparable to 35mm f/1.4 but some hunting appears at night or very low light. Circular aperture creates beautiful bokeh blur. Moderate green aberration is present at f/1.2 on bright edges. Surprisingly sharp at f/1.2 and tack sharp at f/2.
Lens for a lifetime.

Pros: size, IS, price, verstatility ideal start up lens
Cons:
non-linear, zoom sliding becomes loose with time

Bought this lens as my first universal optic for my first DSLR. It's an ideal walkaround lens, with nice performance for the price. If your photographic work is on photo reportage basis during daylight or w/flash you will be happy with this lens. I profiled to be more low light and switchted to primes moreover. This lens annoyed me with non-linear aperture on differend lenghts. Not cruical for everyone with different requirements. :-)
