The ultimate 50mm lens
RF 50mm f/1.2L USM delivers a new kind of optical of performance in full-frame photography. Outstanding clarity and sharpness mean you’ll see noticeably more detail, even right at the edges of the frame.
A great lens for...
The lens’s 50mm focal length has a similar perspective to that of the human eye, and a super-wide f/1.2 aperture that allows for extremely shallow depth of field – ideal for emphasising pin-sharp features like eyes against a soft, out-of-focus background.
With its fast-maximum aperture and ability to focus exceptionally quickly, the RF 50mm f/1.2L USM is the perfect street photography lens, offering new levels of definition when shooting in available light.
Printing a photograph that’s been captured with a lens like the RF 50mm f/1.2L USM is pure joy. Levels of detail are incredible, enabling fine-art photographers to produce ever-more impressive works for exhibition.
The widest of wide apertures
The f/1.2 maximum aperture of the RF 50mm f/1.2L USM is the widest available in the Canon EOS line-up. It gives both photographers and filmmakers the ability to shoot with extremely shallow depth of field – a great way to emphasise a subject against a complicated background.
Super sensitive in low light
The ability to work with such wide apertures lets photographers use fast shutter speeds in low-light conditions, which can freeze both subject movement and camera shake. The RF 50mm f/1.2L USM is a great tool for capturing the atmosphere of any moment using only available light.
A ring-type USM autofocus system, more usually found in Canon’s super telephoto lenses, moves the large glass elements found in the RF 50mm f/1.2L USM with ease. Sharp focus is found swiftly and accurately, and objects can be tracked and followed as they move around the frame.
Robust and responsive – designed for professionals
The RF 50mm f/1.2L USM is a member of the Canon L-Series range and is sealed against dust and moisture. A customisable lens control ring provides direct access to camera settings, offering a manual feel with heightened control.
