Portraits that pop
Capture the attention of the viewer and give your foreground subjects the attention they deserve. With a wide f/1.2 maximum aperture, the Canon RF 50 mm f/1.2L USM Standard Prime Lens lets you shoot with extremely shallow depth of field, so your subjects pop, even against a busy background.
Work in low light
The wide aperture also makes it easier to work in low-light conditions, so you can use a faster shutter speed to freeze movement and stop camera shake. Because you don't need to use additional lighting or flash, you can capture natural-looking, atmospheric photographs.
Fast and responsive focusing
Focusing is fast thanks to Canon's ring-type USM autofocus system, which is usually reserved for their super telephoto lenses. This makes tracking subjects easy as they move around the frame – great for street photography and filmmaking.
Designed for professionals out in the field, the RF 50 mm f/1.2L USM has a robust, weatherproof construction. The customisable Lens Control Ring provides greater manual control with direct access to camera settings, so you don't have to move away from the viewfinder.
