What Is the Best 50mm Lens for Canon Shooters?

Canon shooters are not without options when it comes to 50mm lenses, with a huge range of different optics at varying price points and image quality. This excellent video review takes a look at three of the best options out there, the EF 50mm f/1.2L USM, RF 50mm f/1.2L USM, and the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art.

Coming to you from Christopher Frost Photography, this great video review compares the the EF 50mm f/1.2L USMRF 50mm f/1.2L USM, and the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art. A 50mm lens is one of the most versatile and popular optics out there across a wide range of genres, offering a very neutral focal length suitable for half-body portraits and walkaround work and a wide aperture suitable for both low-light work and narrow depth of field. The great thing about Canon mirrorless cameras is that they adapt EF mount lenses very well, allowing you to draw on the immense library of 50mm lenses made for their DSLR mount should the price of the superlative but extremely expensive RF 50mm f/1.2L be too much for you. Check out the video above for Frost's full thoughts on each lens.
