"Weather sealing"

 

... only if you attach a front filter.

Re: Talk me out of buying the canon 50 mm 1.2

Sigh; yes.  Which I do.

 

The fact still remains that the lens is weather sealed.  The cheaper f/1.4 and f/1.8 are not.

The Canon EF 50 F 1.4 is a better lens in some respects than the 1.2. Are you going to be shooting a lot of low,dim, scenes? If so the 1.2 will be justified. If only on occasion use the 1.4. Buy a good tripod or monopod.

"... you going to be shooting a lot of low,dim, scenes? If so the 1.2 will be justified."

 

If low light is your problem the difference between f1.4 and f1.2 is not a justifiable fact. One half stop in a low light environment isn't a deal breaker or maker.

 

"Buy a good tripod or monopod."

 

This far better advise for low light.
