In the first place, the ef 50mm f1.2 L is an advanced lens. Most people will not benefit from it's ability. However, it is the best 50mm Canon makes and I would never sell mine. This is a lens you can fall in love with.
The best way to tell if the lens is OK, is to use it. Try it on your camera. Which is?________
Being and L means it can be repaired and/or serviced by Canon. (and be worth it, I mean)
It can be found for $700 bucks brand new, sometimes even less.

I have a t3i and he is selling it for $485 and when i looked on amazon brand new it's showing for $1,549 so I'm thinking something is wrong with it?? and a side note people who post ads on craigslist can be haggled down so it will go even lower. My boyfriend and I are going to see it tomorrow. I just was not sure what could be wrong. Thanks for the replies guys

@NanciG, A couple of thoughts... I think the value of the lens is very low. I have this same lens and if I could buy one in excellent condition for $750, I'd consider that a very good price. Asking $485 for the lens sounds too good. In other words, why would someone sell a lens for less than it's worth? The only reason I can think of is because it is defective and he or she knows that a photography store would easily determine the flaw.
Have a look and let us know.

Even at $485 this isn't a good buy if it isn't for you. Why spend even this ridiculous low price if you will never use the lens?
The ef 50mm f1.2 is not an easy lens to use nor is it very forgiving. People buy a f1.2 lens because it is f1.2. Otherwise it is just another 50mm lens.
