Perhaps no lens has a wider price range than the 50mm, which can cost anywhere from under $100 to well over $2,000 depending on the sort of performance and image quality you are after. Two options at the top end are the Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM and Sony FE 50mm f/1.2 GM, and this great video review takes a look at both and which edges out the other.
Coming to you from Alex Barrera, this excellent video review compares the Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM and Sony FE 50mm f/1.2 GM lenses. A high-quality 50mm lens can be one of the most useful in a photographer’s bag, offering a versatile focal length suitable for anything from portraits to events, paired with a wide aperture that can help you tackle low-light situations and isolate your subjects with a narrow depth of field. And despite those extreme apertures, manufacturers have made a ton of progress in producing sharp images even when these lenses are used wide open, making them all the more versatile, and it looks like the latest from Canon and Sony produce awfully impressive results. Check out the video above for Barrera’s full thoughts on both lenses.
