Yongnuo YN 50mm f/1.8 Lens for Canon EF
Key Features
  • Canon EF Mount/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/1.8 to f/22
  • Multi-Coated Lens Elements
  • AF/MF Switch
A compact normal-length prime designed for Canon EF-mount DSLRs, the YN 50mm f/1.8 Lens from Yongnuo pairs the classic 50mm focal length with a bright f/1.8 maximum aperture to suit working in a variety of situations. Multi-coated glass elements reduce the effects of lens flare and ghosting for greater contrast and maintained color accuracy. An AF/MF switch on the lens barrel permits quick switching between focusing methods, and the lens can focus as closely as 1.5' to suit photographing close-up subjects. Additionally, gold-plated contacts permit working with all exposure modes as well as transferring lens information to the EXIF data. A tried-and-true lens construction with design enhancements to benefit handling, this lens is an ideal walk-around lens for everyday shooting.

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

how comparable is this to canons 50mm?would it be okay for the discount or should I just spend the extra for canon?
Asked by: Ashley N.
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!
