Quality is amazing, but auto-focus slow
I love the images that this lens produces. The bokeh (blurred background) is incredible and maybe the best I've ever seen from anything I've used. The problem however is the slowness of the auto-focus. My main reason for buying this lens was to great photos of my daughter who is of toddler age.

I love the images that this lens produces. The bokeh (blurred background) is incredible and maybe the best I've ever seen from anything I've used. The problem however is the slowness of the auto-focus. My main reason for buying this lens was to great photos of my daughter who is of toddler age. The problem is that she moves around way too much for me to be able to capture the moments with this lens. I sadly could not justify the cost of this lens over the 50mm f1.4 which is only a quarter of the cost. Perhaps when my daughter (and future kids) get older I'd be able to better utilize the 50 1.2L.

It seems I'm yet another person to say that this lens is amazing, but it really is worth every penny. Very sharp; beautifuly bokeh. With my 5DmkIII, even casual pictures are tack sharp at f1.2. Sometimes you'll see a comment about the lens being a bit heavy, but it's not when compared to other L lenses. Actually, the weight feels just right on this camera.

Best lens ever
It's much bigger and heavier than the 1.4. A very solid lens. Have already done several great portraits with them - looking forward to using it at a low to no light performance!

Just like New!
This was the first time I've used Adorama in trading in equipment and I couldn't have been happier! Customer Service was amazing and communication was great. As for the lens I upgraded to the Canon 50 mm L 1.2, of course the quality of the product speaks
