The Canon 50mm f/1.2L is better than comparable lenses when used in the f/1.2 to f/2.8 range. It is excellent for wide-aperture shots and has superb bokeh.

Fast Aperture & Optics
The impressively fast f/1.2 maximum aperture affords a great degree of control over depth of field for isolating subjects and producing desirable selective focus effects. Complementing these qualities is a sophisticated optical composition, which includes one aspherical element to suppress spherical aberrations in order to achieve notable sharpness and clarity. A Super Spectra coating has also been applied to limit flare and ghosting and promote greater contrast and color accuracy in a variety of lighting conditions. Rounded eight-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out of focus quality.

USM Motor
Complementing the imaging attributes, a ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM), along with optimized focusing algorithms and a high-speed CPU, is employed to deliver fast, precise, and quiet autofocus performance as well as full-time manual focus override.

L-Series Build Quality
The Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM is a normal-length L-series prime sporting a robust physical design and advanced optical layout. As a member of the esteemed L-series, this lens is sealed against dust and moisture for working in inclement environmental conditions.

Movri Canada, providing the mail-delivery system, is set out to make the gear available at more affordable prices through online rentals.
