Comments about Canon EF 50mm f / 1.2L USM with Case LP1214 and Hood ES-78:
I bought this lens for portrait photos mainly, I love this lens,it gives beautiful results, I borrowed a sigma 1.4 50mm prime lens from a friendbefore purchasing this one and the canon is a bit faster, 1.2, be carful with the 1,2 apature setting it is very dramatic shallow depth of field. LOVE IT!!!!!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My new favorite lens

I can't seem to get this lens off of my 5d/III. It replaced a 35mm 1.4L which was a superb lens, but I just didn't like the FL.If this FL is what you want, and you are a Canon FF shooter, this is your baby. Sure, one has be more careful with focusing technique, but the results are infinitely worth it.Enthusiastically recommended!

Good lens without competition
from El Dorado Hills, CA
If you are looking for a 50mm lens with beautiful bokeh, good contrast/color at wide open, and you want to use f1.2, for low light photo AND video, this is the one for you.
