Default Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM

I was flipping through the lens archive and noticed there wasn't one for this lens. So I figured maybe I'd create a thread. 50L owners go for it.

Wow, what great seperation of subjects from backgrounds and fantastic colors. Hefty price tag though, if it's your bread and butter lens I can see it'd be worth it.

The 85mm f/1.2 has a similar surreal effect... It's a little tricky to pull off f/1.2 (or even f/1.4-f/1.6) but when you do, it's really amazing. You have to take into account various factors (sensor size, focal length, distance to subject and subject depth and DoF) and frame the shot correctly... But the result is your subject practically jumping out of the background.

The 50's price will come down eventually after the initial rush. It already has. The 85mm holds onto the price because it really is a niche lens. Your average person won't buy an 85mm - but they will buy a 50mm.

He went back to a 30D...from the latest update...correct?

By the way, to those that posted...very nice shots. Seems to be a nice lens...but, is it better than the f1.4 equivalent?

Same focal length but two totally different lenses, one thing the 1.4 can't touch is the 1.2's bokeh.
I'll be out on a bachelor 'day' tomorrow and take it for a spin again. See if i can pull off some decent f/1.2 shots.

^^ Have the issues been mostly resolved with the 50 1.2L? Some seemed to have issues with f1.2, when taking shots...some lenses were front/backfocusing, etc.

chilli710: How do you get it so sharp? do you always shoot with a tripod? What PP do you use?

w/ 1.2, I don't think you need a tri-pod. Atleast I never had the need for one.
