This new 50mm 1.2 is simply amazing! Considerable improvements compared to EF version: sharper, focuses faster and extremely accurately with the R camera body (basically, you can get f/1.2 shots all day long), and better control of fringing. This lens still has its own character; it has not gotten too “clinical” as newer lenses seem to be getting lately. A key ability of f/1.2 lenses are their ability to create separation of subject from background (or a 3-D effect), and this lens delivers here extremely well! Out-of-focus areas gently transition into dreamy blur and lift the subject off of background. Naturally, this lens takes in tons of light! With my RP body, I can seriously take shots in near total darkness! You can get very close to subjects, giving it pseudo-macro abilities with a good crop. Additionally, I like the focus limiter and control ring, which make for some very nice enhancements and additional controls. It is large, a tiny bit bigger than an 85 1.4, but feels nicely balanced.
This lens hasn’t left my camera body since purchasing, and I imagine it won’t for quite some time. I am very pleased with this amazing lens, and think it’s worth every penny! All sample shots in this review shot a f/1.2.
