Canon RF 50mm f/1.2 L USM

★★★★★ 4.5
Verdict: But if shooting at f/1.2 is your desire, and you're moving in with Canon's full-frame mirrorless system, the RF 50mm F1.2 L USM is the lens to get. Its optics are sharper than the EF version, and its fit and finish are also more modern. It's our Editors' Choice.

  • Minimal distortion

  • Fluorine lens coat
Cons:

Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM Review

★★★★★ 4.6
Verdict: A lot of pressure was on Canon for this 50mm f/1.2 lens. Not only does it have a high price tag, but – unlike the RF 28-70mm f/2 – it is not a world's first. That means a lot of people, including us at Photography Life, were inevitably going to compare it against the existing 50mm f/1.2 in Canon's...

Canon RF 50mm F1.2 L USM Lens Review

★★★★★
Verdict: When introducing the Canon EOS R and the RF mount, Canon's first full frame lens mount introduced since the EF (electronic focusing) mount was introduced over 30 years ago, Canon primed the pump with some knock-out lenses and the RF 50mm F1.2 L USM Lens was one of them.

Canon RF 50mm F1.2L USM

★★★★★
Verdict: . If you want a lens that excels in almost every way, then this is the one for you. Plus you get an f1.2 aperture, a medium format look, sharpness, fast autofocus, and weather sealing that I genuinely believe is class leading.

Canon RF 50mm F1.2L USM

★★★★★
Verdict: The RF 50mm F1.2 L USM lens features Canon's Air Sphere Coating (ASC), which significantly reduces the occurrence of lens flare and ghosting regardless of focal length or the angle of light. This helps provide clean results with minimal distractions and aberrations.

Wonderful lens, if you can afford it.

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: I sprung for this lens, as I know I Primarily shoot this focal length for most of my work. Optically its amazing and I can get great sharp shots at f1.2 all the time. On the RP its a little big for a 50mm, but I did feel the need to complain like many other reviewers, the extra grip definitely...

Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM

★★★★★ 4.5
