Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM

Review Date: Jan 3, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Bokeh, contrast
Cons:
None so far.

Either the newer batches are much better made or it's a perfect match for the 5D Mark II. I recently fell in love with Canon L prime lenses. I got the 24LII, the 35L, the 85LII and the 135L.

I have been going back and forth in purchasing this lens due to the reviews and all bad rep it's been getting over the web. However, after not getting satisfied by the 50 f/1.8, 2 copies of the 50 f/1.4 and the Sigma 50 f/1.4, I decided to try this out since I really love the 50 mm perspective but the lenses I tried didn't quite cut it.

I didn't have any problem since day one. Very sharp, no focus shift, everything is spot on. I highly recommend this lens.

Pros: Excellent build quality. Sharp images even at f/2. Fast AF. Smooth and creamy bokeh!
Cons:
None so far.

If you're into portraiture, I suggest that you get this as your first L prime lens. Works wonders on a full frame body. The images just pop right in front of you. Your photos will have a 3D feel to it. This is my most used L prime, I also have the 85 f/1.2 and the 24 f/1.4. For the price, this is hard to beat. I decided to purchase this based on the reviews here and it lived up to all of the hype. This is truly a legendary piece of glass.
