A wide aperture lens for high quality portraits and low light photos
With the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM lens you can easily produce more artistic and impactful photography thanks to a wide f/1.8 aperture that produces sharp focus on your subject and a beautiful blurred background.
A classic re-born
The EF 50mm f/1.8 STM replaces the popular EF 50mm f/1.8 II lens which was affectionately known for giving outstanding picture quality at an affordable price. This latest version gives the same stunning photo quality but with a fast, near-silent focus motor and a more robust build that belies its price.
The EF 50mm f/1.8 STM lens is great for:
Perfect for capturing expressions on the faces of friends and family, ideal for weddings, events and parties.
Perfect when you find yourself in darker conditions capturing nightscapes, firework displays or interiors.
Capture life as it happens in front of you from the streets of your town to capturing the emotions of events.
Artistic and impactful photography
The wide f/1.8 aperture of the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM gives you the ability to bring your subject into sharp focus and blur the background. Photographers refer to this as a ‘narrow depth of field’ and makes your subject stand out which is great for portraits, as people become the clear focus of your shot.
Let more light in
The wide f/1.8 aperture lets in more than 8x the amount of light compared to the standard zoom lens that is provided with your EOS*. This results in sharper images with less motion blur and reduced need to use flash in dimly lit conditions so you can easily capture the atmosphere of a low light environment.
For portraits and everyday use
The 50mm focal length allows you to fill the frame with your subject from a comfortable distance making it a great lens for portraits. A similar perspective to the human eye and its compact size make the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM a great everyday lens to always carry with your EOS camera.
Sharp focus for photos and videos
The near-silent STM (Stepping Motor) technology focuses extremely quickly when shooting photos, so you can react suddenly to capture fleeting moments. Creating high quality movies is easier with STM as it delivers steady and quiet continuous focusing, so your movies are smooth, and soundtracks only capture the surrounding sounds and not the noise of a focusing motor.

The aperture is f1.8 which is fine for 99.9% of everything, plus or minus 0.1%. Going for 1.2 or 1.4 is probably not worth the quadrupling or decupling (i'm sure that's the word) what you spend for 1 or 2 more notches you probably wont use unless you're a specialized specialist doing very special things occasionally. If you're coming from zoom lenses of f3.5 or f4 then you'll gain a nice chunk of space to play with which opens up a whole range of image types you didn't have as much access to before! There are 7 apeture blades, which is perhaps fewer than some much more pricey lenses, but the bokeh (out of focus highlights) looks nice, and shooting at f1.8 the bokeh is 100% spherical.
The autofocus is fast, though like basically every lens on the planet may struggle a bit in low light. It's not noisy but it's louder than other more recent STM motors. It's perhaps not the best lens for using during movie shooting for when you have to use onboard sound recording. Though it does have one strange side benefit of making cats sometimes look at you, which makes for nice portraits.
The body is light and sturdy. It's of a nice length so the focus ring is comfortable to use. Though being at the end means that using a lens hood is useful to stop your fingers wandering into the frame.Read more ›
Just be aware this is definitely not for video as the autofocus motor is so noise.
Casing is very cheap, but that's expected for this budget price.
It's a Canon 50mm prime lens and everyone knows how good the 50's are.
Excellent product for the price and a great lens to have in any kit whether that be Landscape, Portrait or general day to day photography.
Good job Canon
