Re: A new Canon 50mm f/1.2 L?

I got the 16-35L II and the 50L myself on a 5Dmk2. I'd never sell the wide zoom. It is too versatile and even for me as a mainly 'people shooter' a good mix in the portfolio if not all images are taken at 50/85/135.

The 50L is a great lens. I read so much about it. Negative and positive but after all I am always impressed when I see the results at f1.2. It's jus so different from any other 50mm lens. I owned the Canon 50 1.8 II and 1.4 and Sigma 50 1.4 but none gave me this wow experience. The Sigma was relatively close with a nice bokeh but not as sharp wide open.

I can definitely recommend the 50L if you need/want this focal length and if you shoot it wide open.
