The Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM is an unmatched new standard lens that features 50mm focal length with a very large f/1.2 aperture maximum for a soft background blur, fine depth-of-field control and narrow depth of field so loved by photographers. The EF 50mm f/1.2L USM fits in any shooting situation; the lens have optimized coating and construction to minimize the flare and ghosting that frequently happens when lenses are used in digital cameras. This high-performance, weather-resistant lens brings all the superb contrast and image resolution you expect in a Canon L Series Lens. Aside from being a consummate low-light performer, the lens also has ultra-sonic motor autofocus and super spectra coating to ensure the natural balance of the image contrast and colour balance.

Product Features in Detail

Very fast maximum aperture
A large maximum aperture of f/1.2 gives outstanding speed when shooting in low light. The lens also provides fine control over focusing, allowing extremely shallow depth of field for creative effects.

Smooth background blur
A virtually circular aperture diaphragm gives out of focus regions a softer, more uniform feel. Sharp foreground objects stand out against a smooth blurred background.

L-series quality
The L-series is Canon's flagship professional lens range, representing the best in precision-designed EF optics. L-series lenses combine superior performance with superlative handling, and are resistant to dust and moisture.

Ultrasonic focusing
A ring-type ultrasonic motor drives autofocus extremely quickly, and in near silence. Excellent holding torque ensures the point of focus is reached accurately, without overshooting. Furthermore, full-time manual override is available, making it possible to adjust focus without leaving AF mode.

Super Spectra coating
Super Spectra coatings ensure accurate colour balance and enhance contrast. They also reduce flare and ghosting – a common problem caused by light bouncing off a camera's sensor.

Integration with E-TTL II flash metering
The lens passes distance information back to a compatible EOS camera's E-TTL II flash system to ensure optimal flash metering.

The lens comes supplied with a lens hood and a soft case.
