L-series quality

The EF 50mm f/1.2L USM incorporates Canon's highest standards of precision optics. The L-series is Canon's flagship professional lens range, combining superior image performance and ultimate operability with dust and moisture resistant construction.

Large f/1.2 aperture

A large maximum aperture of f/1.2 provides outstanding speed for shooting in low light conditions, without the need for flash. The large aperture also provides fine control over depth of field.

Excellent background bokeh

A circular barrel aperture helps to create attractive even background bokeh. This is ideal for isolating subjects at large apertures and for compelling portrait photography.

Fast, quiet autofocus

A Ring-type USM (Ultrasonic motor) uses ultrasonic frequency vibrations to drive extremely rapid autofocus with near-silent operation. A high-speed CPU and improved AF algorithm contribute further to AF speed. Good holding torque stops the focusing lens group without overshoot. Full time electronic manual focus override is available without having to switch out of AF.

Super Spectra coatings

Super Spectra lens coatings and lens element shaping suppress flare and ghosting - more prone to occur with digital cameras due to reflection off the image sensor. Coatings also help achieve true colour balance and increase contrast for vivid hi-fidelity images.

Passes distance information to E-TTL II

The lens passes distance information back to the E-TTL II flash system of compatible EOS cameras to ensure optimal flash metering.


The EF 50mm f/1.2L USM lens comes supplied with a cylindrical lens hood and a soft case.

London GB
I mainly use it for filming interviews and it gives great results plus with the Canon C300 mark ii, I know 100% the interviewee is in focus as it works with the focus assist and auto focus without any glitches. The fast speed of the lens also helps to keep shallow focus.
The subject does have to have some decent light on it as the focus can take time to lock on. I usually manually focus and then turn on the auto focus, which is not something I have to do with other Canon lenses.
