50mm lenses are a peculiar bunch, as you can spend anywhere from under $100 to well over $2,000 depending on the sort of parameters, performance, and image quality you are looking for. Canon, Nikon, and Sony all make 50mm f/1.2 lenses as their premium options, and this excellent video comparison takes a look at all three to see which comes out on top.
Coming to you from Christopher Frost, this great video comparison looks at the Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM, Sony FE 50mm f/1.2 GM, and Nikon NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.2 S lenses. No doubt, a premium 50mm lens can be highly useful, offering a very neutral focal length suitable for everything from portraiture to events coverage and a wide aperture for both low light and shallow depth of field. It used to be that such lenses were not particularly sharp at wider apertures (my EF 50mm f/1.2 is a good example of this), but manufacturers have made some remarkable steps forward in recent years, and you can now get great image quality pretty much wherever you set the lens, making one quite an appealing tool to have in one's bag. Check out the video above for Frost's full thoughts.
