(From Canon lens literature) The Canon RF 50mm F1.2 L USM lens delivers gorgeous images in a large variety of situations. Designed specifically for the EOS R system, its f/1.2 aperture means amazing performance in low light and gorgeous, detailed images with evocative background blur.

Designed to take advantage of everything the RF mount has to offer, RF lenses represent a new frontier in lens design for mirrorless cameras. With a large 54mm lens mount, large diameter elements to match and placement closer to the image plane, RF lenses provide brilliant image quality edge-to-edge with minimal light fallout, enabling new possibilities for enhanced optics and compact designs. A supercharged 12 pin communication system optimizes data transfer between camera and lens for sharp, stable and responsive performance in a wide variety of applications. Delivering features and performance engineered to astound, RF optics herald a new day in Canon's legacy of optical brilliance.

INNOVATIVE OPERABILITY

Control Ring
All RF lenses incorporate a control ring on the lens barrel that can directly adjust numerous settings including shutter speed, aperture, exposure compensation and more. Located towards the front of the lens and effectively adding a third dial to the EOS R camera's main dial and quick control dial, the control ring has a tactile, easily distinguished surface and features a clicking mechanism that provides tangible feedback for confident use while looking through the viewfinder.

Lens Information Display
Another helpful feature, the EOS R camera can display lens information right in the viewfinder, making it easy to confirm the lens's focal length without looking away from the subject at hand.
