Both B&H and Amazon recently dropped their Canon 50mm 1.2 lenses by $300 to $1,299. While still not cheap, this is an awesome lens and a highly recommended upgrade from the 50mm 1.4.
The four Canon shooters in our studio upgraded last year from the 1.4 primarily because we were tired of taking the 1.4 into the CPS repair shop for focus issues. Long story short, the 1.2 is a huge improvement in terms of durability and quality. Of course, the better overall sharpness and additional 1/2 stop of light doesn’t hurt as well.
