Canon makes some really impressive lenses, but of course, they come at prices that match that stellar performance. Do you really need that to spend that much, though, or would you be better off going with a more affordable option? This interesting video compares two 50mm options from the company to help you decide.
Coming to you from Katelyn James, this great video compares the Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 STM and RF 50mm f/1.2 L USM lenses. The 50mm f/1.2 is a superlative lens and widely considered to be one of the best 50mm lenses ever made, but it also costs over 13 times as much as its f/1.8 counterpart. Of course, no one is arguing that the performance of the f/1.8 can compete with that of the f/1.2. Rather, the question is if the performance of the f/1.8 is sufficient for your needs or if you really need to spend over $2,000 on the more expensive option. Of course, if you are a hobbyist and you have the funds, then by all means, get the lens you want and enjoy it. But if you are running a business, it becomes a question of how much you should spend on an expense for a tool. Check out the video above for the full rundown from James.
