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 focus ring is a bit small and fiddly but I think that's to be expected when it comes pancake lenses so can't complain too much about it.
I think this is a really ideal focal length for a standard everyday prime on a full frame camera and with a pretty fast aperture for the tiny size. When taking into consideration the price, quality and size I really think this is a winner for me. If low light is a major factor then you'll probably want to go for something faster. At this price point the 50mm f/1.8 may suit your needs better if you need to make a decision between the two lenses.
When I tried it on a crop sensor however I'm going to be honest I found it something of an awkward focal length. Not wide enough but not tight enough maybe that's just down to years of being used to 35,50,85. The 1.6 crop factor effectively makes it a 60mm which felt a bit nomans land to me I didn't like it anywhere near as much as I did on full frame. I haven't marked the product down for that as it's user preference and in terms of image quality It's just as good.
I think if you are considering this as a first lens for your new crop sensor camera I think a better starting place would be the 24mm f/2.8 stm as a standard prime followed buy a 50mm f/1.8 for portraiture.
Great fun, great price, great images.
First of all, this is a tiny lens. It can easily fit in your pocket if you wanted to swap with your walk about lens whilst out and it makes using a 7D Mark II much easier given its minuscule weight.
The pictures it captures are just awesome. Of course, there is some vignetting wide open but nothing that cannot be fixed in Lightroom. Similarly, the sharpness improves from around f2.2 onwards but even wide open you get the most beautiful pictures thanks to the size of the aperture. I am always impressed with the quality of the bokeh which is much better than the f1.8 II thanks to the rounded 7 aperture blades (up from 5 in the previous version).
In terms of price:performance ratio, you probably cannot beat the 50mm STM with any other lens. As much as I enjoy shooting with L lenses, there is huge satisfaction in being able to get great images with something a lot of people would even consider disposable.
One thing to bear in mind is that at f1.8, your depth of field can become very small. You need to be quite precise about where you want to focus and ensuring that your subjects remain within the focus field to avoid shots looking like the camera missed focus.
Overall, if you want to get amazing pictures with lovely out of focus areas, you have to pick up this lens. And for less than £90, it is an absolute steal.
