The RF lens that sets new standards in photographic performance, delivering supreme sharpness, extra creative control and a low-light performance that’s simply remarkable.
RF 50mm f/1.2L USM delivers a new kind of optical of performance in full-frame photography. Outstanding clarity and sharpness means you’ll see noticeably more detail, even right at the edges of the frame.
The f/1.2 maximum aperture of the RF 50mm f/1.2L USM is the widest available in the Canon EOS line-up. It gives both photographers and filmmakers the ability to shoot with extremely shallow depth of field – a great way to emphasise a subject against a complicated background.
The ability to work with such wide apertures lets photographers use fast shutter speeds in low-light conditions, which can freeze both subject movement and camera shake. The RF 50mm f/1.2L USM is a great tool for capturing the atmosphere of any moment using only available light.
A ring-type USM autofocus system, more usually found in Canon’s super telephoto lenses, moves the large glass elements found in the RF 50mm f/1.2L USM with ease. Sharp focus is found swiftly and accurately, and objects can be tracked and followed as they move around the frame.
The RF 50mm f/1.2L USM is a member of the Canon L-Series range and is sealed against dust and moisture¹. A customisable Lens Control Ring provides direct access to camera settings, offering a manual feel with heightened control.
