Professional quality Canon’s L-series lenses are renowned for producing professional quality results, with a range of features that set these lenses apart. The Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM Lens has a hardy waterproof construction, and can take on dust and rain when out in the elements. Its features create sharpness, bokeh and defined colour contrast, while chromatic aberrations are reduced. This lens is practical while also delivering outstanding images. Definition even in low light An aperture of f/1.2 enables high speed shooting with defined details, even in low light conditions. You will be able to reproduce fine detail in dim lighting without the need for a flash. The fast shutter speed offers exceptional control over depth of field, bringing in the light you need to create softness in your images. Capture scenes in dim mood lighting, candlelight, or when the sun’s down while still capturing detail in your subjects. Beautiful background bokeh A circular aperture helps create soft bokeh effects that capture crispness in your subject while blurring out the background. This is especially compelling in portraiture when you want to focus in on details such as the eyes or skin texture. It also works really well when taking nature shots of flowers or pets, to isolate one section of the frame while softening the rest of the image to create a beautiful mood. Fast, quiet autofocus The ring-type ultrasonic motor (USM) in the Canon EF 50mm F1.2L USM lens delivers fast and near-silent autofocus. The shutter releases quietly, which is important when you’re capturing candid moments at an event or if you’re out in the quiet of nature and don’t want to make a noise. You’ll always be ready to take the next shot with such a fast autofocus. You’re also able to manually override autofocus to take control of the ring without having to switch out of AF mode. Super spectra coating The lens coatings in this Canon prime lens reduces reflection to achieve accurate colour reproduction and minimise flare and ghosting. Chromatic aberrations leave your images with unwanted halos and strange objects that weren’t intended but are created by light reflection. The super spectra coating of this Canon EF lens will reduce these unwelcome effects to give your images better reproduction.
