Discover a new standard in portrait lenses – the Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM lens. Designed specifically for the revolutionary Canon EOS R system, this prime lens offers class-leading image quality with centre to edge sharpness, even at wide open aperture values. The lens is constructed with one UD element and one aspherical element to help minimise aberrations and distortions, plus Air Sphere Coating (ASC) to help eliminate ghosting, flare and reduced contrast—even when you’re shooting into the light. Canon’s built-in Digital Lens Optimiser maintains sharpness throughout the aperture range, minimising the need for post-processing.
With outstanding optics and a maximum aperture of f/1.2, the Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM lens elevates your photography to inspiring levels. As well as offering extensive control over depth of field, the lens captures both pin-sharp detail and stunningly soft bokeh—perfect for portraiture—and excels in even the most challenging of lighting conditions.
Experience effortless, intuitive control at your fingertips with Canon’s newly designed Control Ring, to which you can program key camera settings such as aperture, shutter speed, ISO or exposure compensation. The lens’ ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM), coupled with a high-speed CPU and optimised focusing algorithms, allows for both fast, accurate and quiet autofocus plus full-time manual focus override.
One of Canon’s professional-grade L-series lenses, the Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM lens is engineered to the highest standard. It’s weather sealed and fluoride coated against dust and moisture so you can shoot with confidence in almost any conditions.
