The Canon 50mm f/1.2L is better than comparable lenses when used in the f/1.2 to f/2.8 range and has superb bokeh. Key features include:

  • Excellent for wide-aperture shots

  • Requires autofocus microadjustment

  • L-series build quality

Superb Bokeh. The Canon 50mm f/1.2 L has been somewhat controversial. Bryan Carnathan’s review is perhaps the most accurate. He claims that it’s better than other lenses in this range from f/1.2 to about f/2.8 and has superb bokeh.

Alternative. If you’ll be shooting stopped down past f/2.8 you may be better served by the Canon 50mm f/1.4, but for wide-aperture shots, this lens is the choice.
