Yes! The lens offers f/1.2 aperture which produces super dreamy results for portraits. The 50mm focal length is ideal for portraiture.
This camera can be mounted on both full frame and APS-C Canon cameras. When mounted on a crop (APS-C) body, the focal length will be 80mm – which would be great for portraits indoors and outdoors.
Due to the gorgeous warm colours this lens produces, along with the lens coatings ensuring colour balance and high contrast, very little post processing is needed for images from this lens.
When buying a beautiful lens such as this one, you want to protect it as best you can. We’d recommend a B+W Clear filter to ensure the front element of this lens is protected from scratches at all times.
Keep a hurricane blower on hand for easy cleaning on the go – particularly useful if you’re shooting outdoors. A residual oil remover is also great to remove microscopic surface dirt that clings to your lens. Spray it onto the cloth rather than directly onto the lens itself.
