Did a search. Can't find any thread about this legend.

well... It's pretty rare, i must say...

Fastest lens ever made by Canon. As far as i know, only Leica is making a (very slightly) faster lens (f0.95).

Any sample to offer ?

Thanks :cool:

i know david jay and jasmine star each have one of these... jas has samples on her blog. i saw a comparison thread on another site which had test shots of a mannequin using 50 f/1, 50 f/1.2, & 85 f/1.2... the 85L performed best overall for bokeh quality (the shooter foot-zoomed to make the field of view identical across all 3 frames) and the conclusion was that the 50 f/1 was not quite as good overall as the 50 f/1.2

that being said, if i had the chance to buy one i'd grab it anyhow - id love to see more samples too

Thanks for the input, it's appreciated.

I have myself a 85mm f1.2 and i was wondering if f1.0 is really worth it..

However, an even faster Canon TV lens was adapted for still use:

great, thanks!

:D


Nice reviews there.. I would like to buy one, but the only available in can see now is on eBay and it's waaaayy too expensive.

Basically, i would like to use it along with my 5DmkII for video project.

Hey Jon 8 I have one, a few pix below. Regular and supersized. Sick DOF. Worth it, absolutely yes. You can't shoot at 1.0 or 1.1 with a 1.2, ever!
