I recently added a new lens to my arsenal, the Canon 50mm 1.2L. It’s taken me a while to pick it up because I’ve had the range in a 24-70 2.8L (my first pro lens back in 2004). I actually bought a “cheaper version” Canon 50 1.8 (non L version) a few years back for $400, but it ended up getting dusty in my camera bag, so I sold it. Looking through a 50mm is kinda like what your eye naturally sees so I didn’t find it that interesting. Lately though, I’ve been having a change of heart. The 50mm gives great clarity and minimal distortion around the edges, being a great lens of choice for detail shots and portraits. So, $1500 later… I got the upgrade. I wanted to try it out some more, so I teamed up with Jenna to do some test shots at one of my favorite spots for engagements, Paramount Ranch in Malibu. All of the pictures below were either taken with the new 50mm 1.2L or second to newest lens 24 1.4L. I’m pretty happy how it they came out!
