Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lens

This NON STM 50mm lens is now discontinued - its replacement is the Canon 50mm f1.8 STM Lens = click now to go to the new lens.

The Canon EF 50mm F1.8 II Lens or otherwise known as the fantastic plastic or Nifty Fifty.

We LOVE this 50mm Canon lens, it's what photography is all about. Prime lenses with fast apertures and a price that doesn't stop you from going on holiday. Actually it's a great lens to take on holiday, especially when fixed to a full frame digital SLR camera. Cheap low light portraits for beginner photographers and pros alike.

There are five, yes 5, Canon 50mm lenses. In this Youtube video we compare three of them, the 1.4 the smaller and cheaper f1.8 and the big 50mm f1.2L. The other two are the 50mm f2.5 macro and the new Canon 50mm STM lens.

This is a google search that should show you the other Canon 50mm lenses in the range or you can use the search box on this page at the top right.

This link takes you to Canon Aust page on the EF 50mm f/1.8 II USM lens with all of their spec's and reviews.

This 50mm Canon lens is categorised as a Canon Prime Lens, and as such there is quite a lot of Canon lenses within this group. The short video has them all together to show you the extent of the range.

As you consider this 50mm lens it's worth noting that it is part of both the 50mm range and of the bigger Canon prime standard lens array of lenses. The following short video shows you the prime standard range.,/p>

This lens is amazing and produces great quality images with awesome depth of field. Best 100 bucks i've spent on camera gear.

The build quality of he lens is not the best but for 100 bucks you can't complain.

Wow people told me how good this lens was and thought I had to get me one. Looked around and well over $100. Found Cameras Direct and wow under $100.

Got the lens and man does this live up to the hype. Takes great pictures and in low light, like it is the middle of the afternoon.

This lens is a must for either the beginner or the picture taking veteran a must have for your camera lens collection.

The wife and i both love photography but are a bit limited with our budget, We both purchased this lens with no real high expectations due to its low price but we were both wowed by its amazing depth of field and nice imagery overall.

Great lens for around $100 - couldn't be happier.

A good prime lens with an aperture of f1.8
I bought this lens cause of its price.
It's a bit plasticy, but you know what do you expect with its price.
But still it's an AWESOME LENS!
