    Description - Canon EF 50mm F1.2L USM AF Lens:

    Canon EF 50mm Lens - Serious Glass for Serious Photographers the EF 50mm USM is at present the greatest AutoFocus lens in its group, which makes EF 50mm f1.2L Lens an essential device for many expert and superior amateur photographers. Canon EF 50mm is the only Camera manufacturer to give professionals and superior amateurs through Digital SLRs that feature full frame sensors, such as Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II and EOS 5D digital SLRs. The new EF 50mm f1.2L Lens complements full-frame cameras, while delivering good-looking outcome on APS-C/H sized sensor models as well. Canon EF 50mm is strong evidence to Canon's inheritance of optical quality. Every feature of this EF 50mm Lens shows professional excellence from its wide 72mm filter diameter to its dust and moisture sealed building. A high refraction glass molded Aspherical lens element helps to minimize spherical aberration in EF 50mm f1.2L Lens, which is vital in order to give fine aspect and maximum image excellence from corner to corner, even when the EF 50mm f1.2L is used wide open.


    Full frame digital camera users will specially be grateful for the benefits of Canon 50mm f1.2L focal length, when shooting waist-up portraits while maintaining suitable subject distance at a wedding. The large maximum aperture of f1.2 allows EF 50mm Lens to produce shallow depth of field that softens the background and makes subjects "pop" out of a portrait. Photographers can also take advantage of higher shutter speeds to shoot in lower light through EF 50mm USM and help prevent blurring caused by subject movement or camera shake. In addition to a large aperture, the new EF 50mm Lens also has blazingly fast AutoFocus speed and response time, thanks in part to Canon's ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM), which quietly drives the lens. A full-time manual focus feature in Canon 50mm allows photographers to fine-tune the sharpness of their images, even when the lens is set for AutoFocus. Canon designed the EF 50mm USM Lens to deliver the best possible optical quality while being tough enough to meet the needs of demanding photographers. Canon EF 50mm Lens Construction Eight lens elements in six groups provide high resolution, while advanced coating suppresses flare and ghosting. A glass molded (GMO) Aspherical element ensures maximum image quality by reducing spherical aberration and linear distortion. Dust and moisture resistant components in the EF 50mm Lens mount, switches, and focus ring help to protect the lens in a wide variety of shooting conditions.


    The EF 50mm F1.2L USM is an ultra-large aperture standard lens preferably suitable for portrait photography. In addition to offering a low depth-of-field with a maximum aperture of F1.2, the lens enables use of quick shutter speeds to decrease motion blur and carry shooting in low light. Employing a large, high-precision Aspherical lens element made of extremely refractive glass to minimize aberrations during focusing, the EF 50mm F1.2L USM Lens keeps the greater image quality throughout the shooting range for which Canon’s L-series lenses are renowned. Furthermore, the lens’s ring-type USM (Ultrasonic Motor), high-speed CPU, and optimized AF (AutoFocus) algorithm allow silent and enormously accurate AutoFocus operation. intended to meet the miscellaneous needs of expert and superior amateur photographers, the brilliant lens features full-time manual focusing, which allow users to focus by hand in the AF mode, and a dust- and moisture-proof construction, ensuring certain presentation even under harsh situation. Perfect for photographers who shoot portraits and weddings, Canon’s EF 50mm F1.2L Lens features a round aperture that achieves outstanding background blur.


    Giving out the widest aperture of any lens in the range, the super fast EF 50mm f1.2L USM is a complete low-light performer; perfect for controlling depth of field and shooting inside flash free.

    A round barrel aperture helps to make nice-looking, even background bokeh; perfect for dividing subjects at huge apertures and for forceful portrait photography.


    Quick, Quiet AutoFocus:

    A Ring-type USM (Ultrasonic motor) uses ultrasonic frequency vibrations to make enormously quick AutoFocus with near-silent operation. A high-speed CPU and better AF algorithm add more to AF speed. Superior holding torque stops the focusing lens group with no overshoot. Full time electronic manual focus supersedes is accessible without having to switch out of AF.


    Super Spectra Coatings:

    Super Spectra lens coatings and lens element shaping suppresses flare and ghosting - more flat to occur with digital cameras due to indication off the image sensor. Coatings also help achieve true color balance and boost contrast for vivid hi-fidelity images.
