UNREAL DEAL! Save over £900 on the Canon RF 50mm f/1.2 lens

Deal Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L

This is one of the best savings I've ever seen on a Canon lens – let alone one of the most coveted lenses ever released for the RF mount! 

You can save £912 on the Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L, which is truly unbelievable! Amazon has slashed the lens from £2,589.99 to £1,927.47, but it's eligible for a further £250 off thanks to Canon's Winter Cashback program – making it just £1,677.47, its lowest price ever!

You'll need to be quick, though – Amazon could change the price at any time, and Canon's Winter Cashback offer ends on January 16!

With its lightning-fast f/1.2 aperture, L-series optical engineering and weather sealing, this is one of Canon's flagship RF lenses – and one of the niftiest fifties ever made!

Why is this lens so coveted? I first fell in love with it back in 2018, when I used it at Canon's insane cyberpunk EOS R launch event. Shooting in nightclub-like lighting conditions, its f/1.2 aperture not only ensured great performance and autofocus in limited illumination – it gave that beautiful, blown-out background blur that photographers love (check out a sample from that night below).

On top of that, the signature red ring tells you that this is one of Canon's premium, professional L-series lenses – which means you get tip-top optical engineering as well as weather-sealing. This is a dream lens for any Canon user – and at this price, it's even dreamier!
