Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Standard Prime Lens

The Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Standard Prime Lens is compact, lightweight fixed focal length lens that is ideal for everyday photos. With a large f/1.8 aperture, it makes for a perfect lens in low-light situations and to produce creative background blur. It's optimal for everything from portraits to fast-moving subjects like children and pets. Continuous autofocus is super-smooth and quiet, thanks to Canon's gear-type stepping motor. That means you can shoot video clips without worrying about hearing the noise of the lens.

Focus Ring Placement

What really sets this lens apart is the newly updated focus ring placement. If you need a lens that can tackle many situations and give you maximum versatility, you can't do much better than this Nifty-Fifty from Canon!

Focal Range of 50mm

In the world of photography the 50mm lens is the absolute must-have for any collection. This lens has a fixed focal range of 50mm and is absolutely perfect for an array of uses such as portrait, wedding, detail shots, beautifully manipulated depth-of-field shots and so much more. By keeping the focal range fixed, this lens allows for a much wider aperture range, this is what allows for the depth-of field focus manipulation and the wonderful shots where the subject-matter is crisp and clear while the background is a beautiful blur.

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Standard Prime Lens

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Standard Prime Lens SKU: 0570C002

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Affordable, fast, fun! Everybody knows about the nifty fifty! It's a wonderfully small prime lens that has a fast aperture for a cheap price. The STM variant does seems quite a bit better from the previous version. I have used this lens on my Canon T3, T5i, and now my R8. It works perfectly for portraits or if you need more light in darker situations. It is softer at f/1.8, but sharpens up around f/2.8, which is still perfectly usable. It's a little tight on crop though, but I felt it was was easier to use on full frame for more everyday situations. I'm mostly planning on switching to the RF 35mm, but the 50mm is still an invaluable tool to have in most photographer's and even videographer's bag.
