Yongnuo 50mm f/1.8 Reviews

A camera changing gift

I offered this to my gf who bought a Canon eos something :D I knew it would open a world of possibilities compared to the slow basic good lens that come with the camera. As an amateur, she has been taking amazing photos and videos with it. A inexpensive awesome asset to any new EF tool!

This lens is perfect for the camera we purchased. We worked with the salesperson on the live chat who directed us to it. Thanks so much, the price was right and the quality was great.

Almost after 3 year of use I'm writing my review. This lense simply delivers what it promises -- it's inexpensive and offers better than reasonable image quality. I certainly recommend it as a first 50mm lens for beginner photographers.

Better than expected

I've had this lens for a couple months and the only problem I've had is the auto focus, its loud and misses focus a lot but is still a great lens for 60$

It's respectable

At this point I'm only putting images online and this does well for basic stuff, times when I want a light lens. I also have a lens that's well toward the other end of the price spectrum; in non-challenging environments, it's challenging to tell which pics were taken with which lens.

Question, I own a Canon EOS 20D, is this lens compatible with it? Do I need another accesorie to make it fit or by itself it will mount perfectly? Thanks.

Yes, the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lens is fully compatible with the Canon EOS 20D DSLR camera (and all Canon EOS SLR and DSLR cameras manufactured since 1987 - this applies to all EF lenses with the red dot on the lens mount). No adapter is needed to connect the lens to the camera

They are very similar. Not easy to tell the difference if there is any. The only thing is that if there is any malfunctions with the camera and lens, canon will not honor

Wondering if there's an ETA on when this will be made available? It seems like the previous question is dated back to Mid March, hoping that it won't be another month before it will ship!
