Large f/1.2 aperture
A large maximum aperture of f/1.2 provides outstanding speed for shooting inlow light conditions, without the need for flash. The large aperture alsoprovides fine control over depth of field for compelling portrait photography.

Excellent background bokeh
A circular barrel aperture helps to create attractive, even background bokehwhen isolating subjects at large apertures.

Fast, quiet auto focus
A ring USM (Ultrasonic motor) uses ultrasonic frequency vibrations to driveextremely rapid auto focus with near-silent operation. A high-speed CPU andoptimised AF algorithms contribute further to AF speed. Good holding torquestops the focusing lens group without overshoot. Full time electronic manualfocus override is available without having to switch out of AF.

Super Spectra coatings
Super Spectra lens coatings and lens element shaping suppress flare andghosting - more prone to occur with digital cameras due to reflection off theimage sensor. Coatings also help achieve true colour balance and increasecontrast for vivid hi-fidelity images.

Passes distance information to E-TTL II
