Canon 50mm f/1.2L series USM lens

Launched by Canon in 2006, the 50mm f/1.2L prime lens is a great prime lens to have in your kit. Mimicing the field of view of the human eye, the 50mm can create a natural frame for any situation.

The main feature of this lens is its ultra-fast aperture, coming in at an amazing f/1.2 at its maximum opening, resulting in beautifully soft backgrounds, but also the ability to work in very low light conditions without having to increase your ISO as much as other lenses would have you need.

Its small form factor is an advantage as well, allowing you to fit into smaller spaces. The lens is also weather-sealed, like other L series lenses.

This kit includes the following:

  • Canon 50mm EF Mount f/1.2L series prime lens
  • Hoya HD Goldseries 72mm UV filter for protection
  • Lens caps/covers for front and rear elements
  • Genuine Canon ES-78 lenshood
  • Canon lens soft carry case
