Beautiful Background Bokeh
Canon camera lenses always bring something new to the table. In this case it is that attractive background bokeh that you love. It's created by the circular aperture diaphragm of this Canon camera lens. This circular aperture doles out a softer, more uniform feel to areas that are out of focus. This formulates a smooth, blurred background, against which sharp foreground objects stand out.
Standard Versatility Expected from All Canon EF Lenses
This Canon camera lens incorporates Gaussian optics and blends it with two high refraction lens elements. This enables photographers working in various fields of photography to capture crisp, clean images, even wide open at an aperture of f 1.4. This versatile lens is ideal for photographing landscapes and travel scenes as well as portraits and reportage.
Super Spectra Keeps You Spot On
The Super Spectra coatings used in these camera lenses for Canon ensure perfect color balance and improved contrast. They diminish flare and ghosting that is a common predicament caused by light bouncing off your camera's sensor.

Ultimately, I found the focus of the 1.2f to be more unreliable. That lens back-focused constantly, and I lost great shots because of it. The 1.4f is much more accurate for the kind of work I do. It is baffling that the focus on this relatively inexpensive lens outperforms the L version, but I've seen the proof first-hand.
One final note - I'm often pretty abusive with my lenses - taking them to dusty and wet places. I was concerned that the lack of weather-sealing would be an issue. Three years on though, this lens has survived the rains of India and the dust of Afghanistan without an issue. Highly recommended.
My sister in law has a canon and a canon lens with great shallow depth of field (something I can do in Adobe but it is time consuming and not as natural looking). She let me use her Canon t2i camera when we were in the hospital, and that's why I got my camera. When I realized I couldn't get my much more expensive t6i camera to do what hers did, I realized I needed a better lens than the kit lenses I had.
People said in order get that bokeh look, (shallow depth of field), look for a low f-stop and 50mm. Okay. I don't know what that means, but I know it was how to get that artsy look I wanted for my daughter. So I got this lens. It doesn't zoom, it just does bokeh and does it well. Sharp enough for my general purpose.
Got this with a clear circular polarized lens filter at 58mm diameter. Again, don't know what that means. Don't care. I know what it does. It's a picture gooderizer. It gives me much more natural contrast without being harsh. I notice it especially in my custom black and white settings. If you're a sound guy, it's like adding air to a mix with a clariphonic or Maag eq.
That's how I took the picture below. I'm now mad that I didn't do this years ago. I love taking pictures but I always used point and shoot cameras. Good ones, but there is no comparison.
You can spend more, but if you are a noob with an ASC sensor camera like the canon t series, this is your lane. If you are a pro, it's not a bad lens to have. Not too big or small, well built, and not so expensive you're scared to use if out doors or leave it on your camera around your neck. There's a smaller one, but splurge a little. Expect to become addicted to buying lenses and filters and budget accordingly.
The f/1.4 setting takes simply beautiful photos but it's a bit prohibitive due to the extremely shallow depth of field. If I focus the lens on my dog's nose, her eyes are totally blurred out. This makes it a great setting for artistic use (especially awesome when capturing insects, flowers and other macro images) but not as useful when taking photos of people or scenery.
Crank it up to around f/2.5 or so - still below almost any other stock lens available - and the options explode. Kids, animals, bugs, flowers, wildlife - the photos are beautiful, the depth of field is still dramatic enough to assist with making your photo's subject stand out clearly against the fore/background and the lens still lets in enough light to take crisp, low-noise photos in low-light environments. It also has very little lens and color distortion compared to the lenses that came with my camera.
I strongly, strongly recommend this lens and shooting exclusively in RAW. The photos you get after a bit of post processing will be suitable for 3-5' wide canvas prints.
For the price, there's no excuse not to own this lens. Buy it and you're guaranteed to love photography even more than you already do.
FYI I have a Canon T3i body and until this lens used a stock/kit 18-55mm zoom and 55-250mm zoom lenses. Neither compare to this one, though I still have to use the 18-55mm when I need the wider angle (family shots indoors mostly). That's the only real "con" with this lens - which you know you're getting if you know what a 50mm lens is - it is very difficult to get complete shots indoors. This is not the lens you want if you're taking photos at a party or taking a lot of family photos indoors.
Things that I had to get used to: It's AF is a tad slower then I would like, especially when I am taking pictures of little ones. It also isn't very sharp past 2.0, which for little ones or anything that could move on me I usually keep it over 2.8 anyways. Once you get used to any little things with this lens it will end up being one of your favorites.
