The 50mm was the first prime lens I ever shot with and I fell in love with it instantly. The 50mm is probably the most common prime portrait lens because between it's shallow depth of field (helloooo dreamy backgrounds) and amazing low light capabilities it really makes this an awesome lens to use indoor and outdoor for portraits. There's a reason this lens is in almost every portrait photographers camera bag. The focus on it is nice and sharp which to me is important when photographing my clients. It's a quick focusing lens which comes in handy when working with children. My personal sweet spot is shooting at 2.8, which gives me enough sharpness to bokeh ratio. Every shot you see as a sample was taken with the 50mm 1.2L II. If you're looking to invest in an amazing all around portrait lens, then you'll really love this lens!
The EF 50mm f/1.2L USM Lens from Canon is a fast prime lens featuring a particularly large maximum aperture for effective low-light and shallow depth of field capability. As a standard focal length lens, it is suitable for most any shooting situation and its lens coating and optical construction are optimized to minimize chromatic aberrations, ghosting and flare. A truly circular diaphragm results in pleasing out-of-focus areas.

An ultrasonic autofocus motor (USM) provides fast, smooth and quiet autofocus action and manual focus override allows for precise manual focusing even in AF mode. With a tight seal structure and the addition of the optional Canon protect filter, the 50mm f/1.2L lens is moisture and dust proof.
