Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM

Review Date: Oct 20, 2008 Recommend? no | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 5 

Pros: Bokeh, Colour, and Materials it made from.
Doesnít auto focus properly at all, Has bad focus shift issues

Iíve given this lens a 5 because manually focusing it @ f/1.2 on a 5D with Ee-S screen is a fun, otherwise Iíd rate it lower.

Regularly missing a money shot has now become depressing.

Iím going to replace it with a Sigma 50 f/1.4 HSM once the manual focus novelty wears off.

Donít be under any illusion that Canon will have fully tested this lens and are aware of the issues regarding back focus & focus shift.

Shame on Canon . .
