Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM

ef50lusm
Review Date: Sep 19, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Sharp, solid construction, great handling, "charm"
Cons:
CA, vignetting (FF)

After carefully reading of all the reviews in this forum (backfocus issues!) I decided to see if I would be one of the lucky owners who had *not* to complain.

First test shots (1Ds III at minimum distance, f=1.2) made me feel if I'd won the jackpot: no problems with backfocus, sharp and clear images even full open! Honestly I did not shoot flat test charts but every object had been in focus so there are no issues with sharpness to complain about.

Vignetting can be easily fixed in ACR or DXO. Some reluctant CA which can be removed using Shay Stephens Color Fringe Reducer (PS action).

Great lens with charm - good purchase!
