Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Lens
The technical details behind this lens
Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Lens offers a Gaussian optics design, along with two high refractive index elements, to control spherical aberrations and distortion for high sharpness and clarity. Offering a Super Spectra coating, this feature has been applied to suppress flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in difficult lighting environments. Complementing the optical design is a micro Ultrasonic Motor (USM), which allows quick and quiet autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus control. This lens also features a rounded eight-blade diaphragm that contributes to a pleasing out-of-focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
