Examples at f/1.2: Late Dusk, Beaver on the Loose

These frames give a good idea of what a miracle-worker the Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM is at f/1.2: crisp and clear imagery wide open—very impressive.

The orange/magenta color is due to high clouds catching the sun a good while after it had set. It is acccurate as to how the eye saw it.
