The EF 50mm f/1.8 STM excels at portraiture, low-light photography, and adding an artistic edge to everyday objects and settings, thanks to its wide f/1.8 maximum aperture and 50mm focal length.

This Youtube Video takes you through the features and benefits of the new Canon EF 50mm STM Lens.

Compact, Lightweight, Affordable

The EF 50MM f/1.8 STM has a compact and lightweight design, weighing a mere 160g, and easily slips into your bag adding very little to the overall weight of your kit. The lens’s new design compliments both Canon’s spectrum of EOS DSLRs, while the new metal mount provides a more robust connection to camera bodies.

Perfect Prime

As a prime lens, the fixed 50mm focal length provides high quality results, with enhanced visible sharpness and contrast. When paired with an APS-C EOS DSLR, the lens is ideal for portraiture, helping you capture the perfect head and shoulder composition. It’s also a useful every day ‘standard’ lens for full frame DSLRs and is great at shooting a diverse range of subjects with a natural viewpoint and perspective.

Low Light Capabilities

The f/1.8 aperture lets more light into the lens, so you can comfortably shoot in darker conditions, allowing you to shoot candid handheld shots without the use of a tripod.

Image Quality

Providing enhanced image quality, this lens features Canon’s Super Spectra Coating, which minimises internal reflections, as well as ghosting and flare. The lens also provides a minimum focusing distance of just 0.35m, allowing you to get even closer to subjects and achieve a greater level of magnification, while the 7-blade aperture delivers beautiful blur and out of focus highlights.

As always we like to give you plenty of opportunities to research and so following are some likes that will hopefully educate you a little and allow you to pick the best of the Canon STM Lenses that will suit you.

Customer Reviews

The "Nifty Fifty" that's right for video Review by Harrison (Staff)
Ease of Use

Featuring full time manual control and a Stepping Motor, this Canon Prime Lens should be one on the list for the video shooter.

The Stepping Motor allows silent and smooth auto focusing, which is perfect for video recording and the Full Time Manual control lets you adjust your focus manually even when auto focus is engaged.
