This Canon 50mm lens features a remarkable ultra-large f/1.2 aperture for an extremely narrow depth of field, letting you shoot close subjects in focus against softly blurred backgrounds. The large maximum aperture also gathers lots of light to give you an ultra-bright view through your viewfinder, and it lets you use faster shutter speeds to "freeze" moving subjects. This lens is ideal for taking great-looking photos at twilight, or indoors without a flash.
You'll get precise, silent focusing, thanks to advanced Canon optics and a powerful ultra sonic motor (USM). The lens coating and construction minimize ghosting and flare.
