Additional information:

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM is normal prime lens for 35mm SLR cameras Canon EF.

It is easy to love a lens with perfect optical quality, best-available AF and first-class build quality. Start dropping any of those attributes and size, weight and price concessions are expected with the amount of the price concession being the all-important factor for many. In this case, the price concession is very substantial, easily making the 50 STM Canon's lowest priced lens. This ultra-low price, combined with an extremely light weight (only Canon's pancake lenses and the 50mm f/1.8 II are lighter), very small size (only Canon's pancake lenses are shorter) and impressive stopped down image sharpness, immediately (and unsurprisingly) launched the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens to the pinnacle of Canon's best seller list.

Su enfoque es bastante rapido y silencioso. De tamaño pequeño y muy fácil de llevar.


Cuando enfocas a un objeto que esta a una menor distancia de su límite, el enfoque automático se engancha y deja de funcionar correctamente hasta que vuelves a enfocar.


És un gran objetivo para retratos, con buen bokeeh. Aunque su peso intimida, es bastante sencillo.
