Sharing the widest aperture of any lens in the range, the super fast EF 50mm f1.2L USM is a consummate low-light performer; ideal for controlling depth of field and shooting indoors flash free.
A large maximum aperture of f1.2 provides outstanding speed for shooting in low light conditions, without the need for flash. The large aperture also provides fine control over depth of field.
A circular barrel aperture helps to create attractive, even background bokeh; ideal for isolating subjects at large apertures and for compelling portrait photography.
A Ring-type USM (Ultrasonic motor) uses ultrasonic frequency vibrations to drive extremely rapid auto focus with near-silent operation. A high-speed CPU and improved AF algorithm contribute further to AF speed. Good holding torque stops the focusing lens group without overshoot. Full time electronic manual focus override is available without having to switch out of AF.
