The Canon EF 50mm f/1.2 L USM could be one thing you ever want when snapping pictures at midnight in urban settings without a flash. Compared to the Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 lens, it produces sharper images with better color saturation and higher contrast. The solid build construction also makes the f/1.4 looks like a heap of plastic.
The autofocus mechanism is silent and doesn’t have problem focusing in low-light settings. However, consumers should note than the Canon f/1.2 is about four times more expensive than the Canon f/1.4. Budget conscious users should choose Canon f/1.8 models instead.
