Ultimately, I found the focus of the 1.2f to be more unreliable. That lens back-focused constantly, and I lost great shots because of it. The 1.4f is much more accurate for the kind of work I do. It is baffling that the focus on this relatively inexpensive lens outperforms the L version, but I've seen the proof first-hand.
One final note - I'm often pretty abusive with my lenses - taking them to dusty and wet places. I was concerned that the lack of weather-sealing would be an issue. Three years on though, this lens has survived the rains of India and the dust of Afghanistan without an issue. Highly recommended.
My sister in law has a canon and a canon lens with great shallow depth of field (something I can do in Adobe but it is time consuming and not as natural looking). She let me use her Canon t2i camera when we were in the hospital, and that's why I got my camera. When I realized I couldn't get my much more expensive t6i camera to do what hers did, I realized I needed a better lens than the kit lenses I had.
People said in order get that bokeh look, (shallow depth of field), look for a low f-stop and 50mm. Okay. I don't know what that means, but I know it was how to get that artsy look I wanted for my daughter. So I got this lens. It doesn't zoom, it just does bokeh and does it well. Sharp enough for my general purpose.
Got this with a clear circular polarized lens filter at 58mm diameter. Again, don't know what that means. Don't care. I know what it does. It's a picture gooderizer. It gives me much more natural contrast without being harsh. I notice it especially in my custom black and white settings. If you're a sound guy, it's like adding air to a mix with a clariphonic or Maag eq.
That's how I took the picture below. I'm now mad that I didn't do this years ago. I love taking pictures but I always used point and shoot cameras. Good ones, but there is no comparison.
You can spend more, but if you are a noob with an ASC sensor camera like the canon t series, this is your lane. If you are a pro, it's not a bad lens to have. Not too big or small, well built, and not so expensive you're scared to use if out doors or leave it on your camera around your neck. There's a smaller one, but splurge a little. Expect to become addicted to buying lenses and filters and budget accordingly.
The f/1.4 setting takes simply beautiful photos but it's a bit prohibitive due to the extremely shallow depth of field. If I focus the lens on my dog's nose, her eyes are totally blurred out. This makes it a great setting for artistic use (especially awesome when capturing insects, flowers and other macro images) but not as useful when taking photos of people or scenery.
Crank it up to around f/2.5 or so - still below almost any other stock lens available - and the options explode. Kids, animals, bugs, flowers, wildlife - the photos are beautiful, the depth of field is still dramatic enough to assist with making your photo's subject stand out clearly against the fore/background and the lens still lets in enough light to take crisp, low-noise photos in low-light environments. It also has very little lens and color distortion compared to the lenses that came with my camera.
I strongly, strongly recommend this lens and shooting exclusively in RAW. The photos you get after a bit of post processing will be suitable for 3-5' wide canvas prints.
For the price, there's no excuse not to own this lens. Buy it and you're guaranteed to love photography even more than you already do.
FYI I have a Canon T3i body and until this lens used a stock/kit 18-55mm zoom and 55-250mm zoom lenses. Neither compare to this one, though I still have to use the 18-55mm when I need the wider angle (family shots indoors mostly). That's the only real "con" with this lens - which you know you're getting if you know what a 50mm lens is - it is very difficult to get complete shots indoors. This is not the lens you want if you're taking photos at a party or taking a lot of family photos indoors.

La calidad de construcción es muy superior a la del 1.8 y la sensación de robustez no tiene comparación.v
El 1.8 me dió muchas alegrías pero este lo supera al menos desde mi gusto, ya se sabe que para gusto los colores.
El bokeh de este 1.4 me resulta más agradable y fino que el 1.8 y la nitidez sube a muy buen nivel.
Me decidí por este porque el 1.2 se me iba de precio y Amazon sacó una oferta muy buena de este objetivo y me quitó todas las dudas a la hora de lanzarme a por él y sin lugar a dudas ha sido un gran acierto.
Dejo comparativas de tamaño con el 1.8.
Lo recomiendo sin lugar a dudas.
La lente è arrivata puntuale e ben confezionata e ben protetta nel suo pacchetto Canon.
La fattura della lente è buona, ha un buon peso e un aspetto ben rifinito. La ghiera del fuoco è completata dal piccolo visore che mostra la distanza della messa a fuoco. L'attacco in metallo garantisce una grande resistenza una volta attaccato l'obiettivo al corpo macchina.
Iniziano qui le note dolenti, la lente è quasi completamente inutilizzabile ad aperture sotto f/2.0 (e la qualità complessiva risulta comunque inferiore ad un 50mm Canon 1.8 STM SLR) per problemi di aberrazioni cromatiche veramente visibili e un sistema di autofocus lento, inaffidabile, rumoroso e superato (che dopo poche settimane di uso ha anche iniziato a darmi ENORMI problemi di backfocus, fino al punto di farmi rendere la lente).
Una lente sicuramente valida per un fotoamatore che vuole avvicinarsi al mondo delle aperture focali spinte, resto del parere che spendendo meno della metà e "accontentandosi" di f/1.8 si possa prendere il 50mm 1.8 sempre di Canon o, spendendo qualche soldo in più, prendere il 50mm Sigma Art.
Personalmente sono rimasto estremamente deluso da questa lente, una macchia sull'enorme e ottimo parco lenti Canon.
Though this lens is not meant for the M range Canons, I bought this lens with an aftermarket M converter after reading hundreds of great reviews on this 50mm “must have”.
As my first non-kit lens, I have to say that the lens quality is great both in terms of construction and the clarity of photos that this is able to produce.
At lower f stop of 1.4, you can get beautifully blurred backgrounds that no other kit lens can provide but what is more useful about this lens is being able to take photos in lower light without having to increase your ISO or decrease shutter speed which will result in either lower quality photos or more camera shake if you’re not using a tripod.
You won’t regret this purchase - believe me!
Das aussen fokussierende Objektiv ist etwas empfindlich. Stöße oder Druck am herausfahrenden Plastikzylinder können angeblich das Material dehnen, verbiegen etc. sodass sauberes Fokussieren nicht mehr richtig möglich ist. Ich hätt' es kaum gedacht, aber nach einigen Monaten in der Tasche hab ich tatsächlich einen Frontfokus. Zudem hat es gelegentlich Probleme den Fokus zu treffen. Gerade offenblendig und in der Nähe der Naheinstellgrenze. Das ist für Berufsfotografen nicht hinnehmbar.
Well made and very very happy with it.
