BorrowLenses.com (Triple Matt's) Write-Up
If I had to choose one lens, it would have to be the Canon 50 F1.2 L. Let's start with the obvious:

  • • it sports a super large aperture that allows the user to shoot hand held in almost any lighting situation, minus it being pitch black.
  • • 50mm is one of the best focal lengths out there for portraits, and when put on a crop sensor body, becomes a small telephoto.
  • • Subjects come out tack sharp while backgrounds are creamy smooth. Bokeh is unmatched by any other prime out there, maybe except the Canon 50 1.0.

But it's the not so obvious things that make me choose this as the lens rental for me. It's not too big and heavy, when compared to the 24-70 F2.8, or the 70-200 IS2, both of which are great lenses. It's AF is relatively fast, unlike its big brother, the 85 1.2. My only complaint is that I can't put it down. This lens is suitable for almost any situation and gives striking results in low light settings. This lens is just simply amazing.
