Review Conclusions on Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM

Get Canon 50mm f/1.2L USM at B&H Photo and see my Canon mirrorless wishlist.

The about $2299 Canon RF 50mm f/1.20L USM delivers outstanding performance. To my eyes the Canon 50/1.2L has a special quality to it that nothing else but the Zeiss Otus 55mm f/1.4 APO-Distagon can deliver—with autofocus and another 1/2 stop of lens speed and a native lens mount.

The price of the Canon 50mm f/1.2L USM is high in absolute terms, but the value for professional and targeted usage is unbeatable. I’d snap it up in an instant had I the budget for it.

Before reading this conclusion, it is best to take in the context behind it, so please see the various series and examples in my in-depth review of the Canon 50mm f/1.2L USM.

Canon 50mm f/1.2L USM: Conclusions

I deem the Canon 50mm f/1.2L USM the first (and as yet only) CaNikon mirrorless lens to persuasively and unequivocally demonstrate that the new wide diameter and short flange focal distance mounts make possible what is claimed in terms of optical design. The Nikon NIKKOR Z lenses have been a disappointment at best, so I look forward to testing the Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L USM because it seems that Canon is taking the pro market seriously in terms of lenses, but Nikon is not, at least not yet.
