EF50mm f/1.2L USM – a superfast standard

Long regarded as the standard focal length, a 50mm lens requires skill to use it well. The fastest standard lens in its class, the EF50mm f/1.2L USM lens is a natural choice for ambient light portraits with a natural, flattering perspective. The large, circular aperture can be used to create a very shallow depth-of-field and pleasing out of focus highlights.

Who is it for?

The EF50mm f/1.2L USM lens is favoured by portrait photographers for the natural perspective it delivers, and the ability to separate the subject from the background by good control of the depth-of-field. It is appropriate for wedding photographers who are looking to use natural light creatively for impact.

Key features

  • L series construction and optics
  • Large f/1.2 aperture
  • Fast, quiet USM autofocus
  • Super Spectra coatings
  • Circular aperture for excellent background bokeh
  • Provides distance information for the E-TTL II flash system

The f/1.2 maximum aperture allows an almost unprecedented level of control over depth-of-field. With a circular aperture design, this lens is capable of achieving beautiful bokeh (background blur) to help you to isolate the subject from the background.

The L series build quality of this lens ensures that it will keep performing as long as you do by shedding dust and water with the seals that are employed around the body and mount.

 

EF50mm f/1.2L USM – a standard lens that's great for portraits and weddings.

  • USM autofocus
    A ring-type USM autofocus motor means that you can focus quickly, near-silently and with precision. It also provides full-time manual focus so that you can adjust the focus with the focus ring, without first having to switch the lens to manual focus. This allows you to adjust the focus accurately to ensure it is exactly where you want it to be for the most creative control possible.
  • Distance information
    For use with E-TTL II flash metering, this lens provides distance information back to the camera body to help refine the flash metering algorithms and ensure accurate flash exposure.
  • Super Spectra coatings
    The Super Spectra coating achieves two benefits – it cuts down internal flare and ghosting when light reflects off the digital sensor providing images with improved contrast. It also ensures accurate colour balance across the entire EF lens range so that all lenses have a uniform colour response.
