Overview: The Canon EF50mm f/1.2L USM lens is an
L-series, fixed length medium telephoto lens for Canon EOS cameras. The lens has
a high-precision, large-diameter aspheric lens element for excellent imaging
performance, even at maximum aperture. The truly round aperture hole gives you
the narrow depth of field and soft background blur so loved by photographers. The lens includes
the LP1214 Lens Case and the ES-78 Lens Hood.
Ultrasonic Motor (USM): The EF50mm lens is equipped with an Ultrasonic Motor (USM) for silent, high-speed auto focusing.
Focusing Ring: Regardless of whether you're in manual or auto focus mode, the focusing ring always works. This means you can auto focus on a subject, but manually change the focus by turning
the focusing ring.
Focus Mode Switch: You can switch between Auto Focus and
Manual Focus using the two-way AF/MF switch on the barrel of the lens.
Lens Hood: The lens kit includes the ES-78 lens hood to keep
unwanted light out of the lens, and protects the front of the lens. The hood can
be reverse-mounted on the lens for storage. When installed, the hood adds
approximately 1-5/8" to the overall length and 1/2" to the overall diameter
of the lens.
Optional Filters: The EF50mm lens has a 72mm mounting thread on the front of lens for attaching screw-on type filters.
