One of the most versatile focal lengths available, the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens from Canon is a compact, normal-length prime well-suited to everyday shooting. The bright f/1.8 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and also affords increased control over depth of field for isolating subject matter. Individual elements feature a Super Spectra coating to help minimize flare and ghosting to realize greater contrast and color accuracy when working in backlit and harsh conditions. Additionally, an STM stepping AF motor is used to realize quick and near-silent autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override.

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Reviews
It’s great for taking indoor pictures or portraits.
Amazing Starter Lens
At this price you can't get any better than this. If you are starting out as a photographer or videographer this lens will be perfect for you. It's incredibly light weight and delivers an incredible depth of field.
Love the wide aperture!!
Love the wide aperture on this lens makes for a great shallow depth!
Buy this lens!
This lens is incredible!! It paid for itself on it's first shoot. Great detail, great bokeh, great lens!! In auto and manual focus, just an overall smooth lens that works very well! I'm super impressed with it.
A Newbie With A Nifty
I love my nifty 50. I'm new to learning photography and the nifty 50 came highly recommended by my photographer mentor, David Molnar. Im excited to shoot everything now!
Easy and fun to use
My yearbook students put these on and at first were jolted by the prime lens and it's lack of zoom. But then they saw the effect of the shallow depth of field on portraits, and were hooked! Good service and tracking throughout the order process.
An upgrade of multiple dividends!
My older Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens was given to a friend who took up photography in retirement. She was delighted. I purchased this stm lens for use with my Canon 5D Mark III, and I was not disappointed! Five stars for sharpness and bokeh. I shoot primarily in aperture-priority mode. At f/3.2 and f/3.5, I get beautiful results. This lens is a winner!
Really impressed with the quality of the shots.
