Super bright standard lens

The RF 50mm f/1.2 L USM lens is Canon’s premium 50mm ‘standard’ lens in the RF lens range, enjoying a special place in the EOS lens line-up thanks to an incredibly fast f/1.2 maximum aperture. Thanks to Dual Pixel CMOS AF, new levels of focus accuracy at f/1.2 are possible with Canon EOS R Series cameras and RF 50mm f/1.2 L USM.  The RF mount, which has been built to allow an optimum distance between sensor and lens, brings new creative and low light performance capabilities to both photographers and filmmakers.

Fast and precise optical performance

As a member of the legendary L-series range of lenses the RF 50mm f/1.2 L USM is nothing short of state-of-the-art. Setting new benchmarks in optical performance thanks to its ultra-wide aperture and superb light gathering capability, it redefines what is possible to capture. A ring-type ultrasonic (USM) motor delivers fast and precise focusing at blistering speeds thanks to the new lens design, offering the ultimate in prime lens quality and performance.

Legendary L-series image quality

Because it’s an L-series lens, you’d expect the RF 50mm f/1.2 L USM to be made to exacting Canon standards. Housed within its premium L-series body is the latest in optical engineering, consisting of one UD lens element, two ground Aspherical elements and a single moulded Aspherical element to eliminate any optical issues such as chromatic aberration.

Built for everyday professional use

When you’re working under pressure, the last thing you want is any break in concentration. Looking away from the subject to adjust camera settings risks losing the shot altogether and Canon engineers have recognised this by incorporating the Lens Control Ring on all RF lenses. This allows for intuitive adjustments of camera settings such as Tv, Av and ISO while maintaining full concentration on the task at hand. Additionally, full manual control over the lens is offered by a precise focusing ring to allow close focus adjustments up to an impressive 40cm.

The Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM is an incredible lens with a pretty incredible price-tag. It's easily one of the best 50mm lenses that we've ever reviewed, from any brand, but it's also one of the biggest and most expensive too.

PhotoReview

Although the RF 50mm f/1.2L USM lens represents a substantial investment in weight and cost, it also delivers at the highest levels of performance.

PC Magazine

The RF 50mm F1.2 L USM is a modern take on one of Canon's classic lenses, with stunningly shallow depth of field thanks to its extra-bright f/1.2 design.

Camera Labs

The Canon RF 50mm f1.2L USM is a supremely well-corrected ‘standard’ prime lens for Canon’s EOS R mirrorless system. It delivers the optical goods in every regard with crisp details into the corners, minimal distortion, and very shallow depth-of-field effects with lovely rendering.

Photography Life

A lot of pressure was on Canon for this 50mm f/1.2 lens. Not only does it have a high price tag, but – unlike the RF 28-70mm f/2 – it is not a world’s first. That means a lot of people, including us at Photography Life, were inevitably going to compare it against the existing 50mm f/1.2 in Canon’s...

Got this lens a few weeks back and I am so impressed! Its fast to focus, sharp and the details it can capture are insane! Tried both for pet portraits and for landscape, nature photography and I am blown away by the results. The RF glass is so nice, but this really is a technical masterpiece. Wow!

The combination of this lens on an R5 body has been a revelation. There is almost no situation where it will not cope available light handheld - day or night. Conversely on even moderately bright days I can see this being a challenge wide open, even at 1/8000 sec - so an ND filter may be required.

As a wedding photographer I have always loved using Primes. After changing my camera to the R5 the first two lenses I bought were the RF24-70 F2.8 and the RF50mm F1.2. I use these two lenses more than any other and can use the adapter with my current kit of EF lenses whilst I save for the other RF...

This RF 50mm 1.2 has been on my camera since I bought it. Very fast, low light issues are gone and perfect combined with my R6. The build quality is outstanding as you expect from Canon and the images are super sharp and amazing.

I purchased this lens a few months ago now and ive not been disappointed at all. Its a little on the high side for price however the image quality you get is 2nd to none for sharpness compared with the 50mm 1.8.

PB Tech
