The Canon 50mm f1.2L. Hell yes.

Ok, ok, what’s your favorite piece of gear?

Me? I can do with crappy camera bodies, but good glass is where it’s at.  I’m in love with my 50mm f1.2.  This thing is a beast.  It’s basically on my camera body 95% of the time.  No joke.  The thing is a magic light vortex that makes dark stages look like a f@#$ing blazing sun.

I f@#$ing love you, my fat little friend.

And, no, I don’t actually shoot wide open all the time.  If there’s one thing I’ve come to love about Canon L class lenses, it is the color reproduction.  Everything just comes out looking way more colorful.  And that’s something I’d rather not have to deal with in post.

But, yeah, having f1.2 is pretty awesome.
