The Canon 50mm f/1.2L is a ultra high speed prime lens available for rental at Camera Hire. Incorporating Canon’s highest levels of precision in optical design, this lens is a unique creation. A maximium aperture of f/1.2, allows for shooting to occur in the lowest of lighting conditions, without needing to resort to shooting with a flash, or unwanted use of high ISO settings. The Canon 50mm f/1.2L offers a razor thin depth of field, providing fine control over subject isolation. Circular aperture blades help ensure that out of focus areas are rendered smoothly, a particularly relevant trait for this lens.
The 50mm f1.2L features a ring-type USM ( ultrasonic motor ), which uses vibrations at an ultrasonic frequency to drive autofocus at an incredibly rapid speed, while maintaining silent operation. Full time manual focusing override is available, allowing delicate focus adjustments if necessary.
A stunning performer, the 50 f/1.2 can be relied upon to produce remarkable images, with a rather unique aesthetic when shot wide open. This lens would be an excellent choice for Canon users looking to shoot portraits without going to the longer 85mm focal length. The Canon 50mm f/1.2L is now available to rent from Camera Hire.
