Compact, lightweight, and close-focusing, the Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 STM is a sleek normal-length prime offering a classic, versatile field of view and an especially compact design. An ideal lens for every day, walkaround shooting, this 50mm f/1.8 is characterized by its bright design for available light shooting and apt depth of field control. The optical design incorporates one aspherical element, which reduces spherical aberrations and distortion, and also sports a Super Spectra coating to minimize flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy. Also, an STM motor affords impressively quiet and smooth autofocus performance and full-time manual focus override. Additionally, a configurable Control Ring lets you adjust exposure settings, including ISO, aperture, and exposure compensation, from the lens itself.

Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 STM Reviews
Gotta have one
As a pro shooter I always use L lenses. I just got the EOS R6 MKII and purchased Nifty Fifty from B&H for basically a bag lense or out and about. I found myself using this for much more than I thought I would. It is nice and light, has a quiet smooth motor and sharp. Great for video!
lens is cheaply made. Lens cap barely stays attached. When camera is turned on It shows message Attached lens may not be supported by camera's firmware
I'm actually really impressed with the RF line of non-professional lenses. I've purchased a few of them now (16mm, 24mm, 35mm and 50mm). I'm impressed with the 24mm and 35mm that they offer macro and in-lens stabilization. These are small and light weight but well built and feel solid. My plan is to use them mainly for gimbal work, video and hiking and backpacking. I'm somewhat tempted to bring them to a wedding reception- especially the 16mm and 24mm for fun dance floor photos.
Excellent for beginners
Very light to carry around and excellent for beginners great view and clear pictures!
Best deal ever!
There's a reason why it's called a nifty fifty. For $150 it's absolutely a steal. Of course it doesn't have image stabilization but that is to be expected. Very compact and great to bring with you anywhere, especially for travel. Can make great portraits and still pretty good for landscape or city photo. More wider lens would be preferred though.
Canon's RF 50mm f/1.8 STM deserves your attention. If you are a professional with unlimited resources, not so much. If you are looking for a lens that sizewise replicates what your eye sees, this lens does that. It is inconspicuous. It is lightweight. It very nicely fits the RP body size. Stealth. I like to store lenses with their lens hood. Most storage devices do not allow this - they are fitted to the lens and caps only, why? Regardless, I found one that's perfect. It even comes with a removable padded open loop which make the vertical fit ideal. And the hood fits. Try the BPAULL BL-0003, inner dia. 3.35" x 4.53" height. The Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 STM lens is an absolute price beater. It is a pretty sharp lens, especially for the remarkable price. It is well made, feels solid to the hand, a useful tool. Carry it anywhere with no fuss. It's a pleasant surprise.
Can not beat the value.
For the price, this lens can't be beat. It has literally made me a better photographer.
