The Nifty Fifty is back, and bet­ter than ever

New Zealand D-Photo - - GEAR OF THE YEAR | HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE -

The suc­ces­sor to Canon’s in­cred­i­bly pop­u­lar EF 50mm f/1.8 II, Canon’s lat­est Nifty Fifty is a su­perb ex­am­ple of a fo­cal-length sta­ple and an ideal sec­ond lens for any­one look­ing to take their pho­tog­ra­phy to the next level. Be­ing one of the most ver­sa­tile fo­cal lengths for por­trai­ture and street shoot­ing, the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM lens han­dles low-light shoot­ing with ease, boast­ing a wide f/1.8 max­i­mum aper­ture that lets more light into the lens for com­fort­able shoot­ing in darker con­di­tions. Plus, with a gear-type step­ping mo­tor, or ‘STM’, that de­liv­ers pre­cise con­trol over depth of field, it en­sures fast, smooth, and near-silent fo­cus­ing. Weigh­ing in at only 160g, it’s a mod­est marvel. A com­pact and light­weight de­sign means that the lens eas­ily slips into any cam­era bag, adding very lit­tle to the over­all weight of the kit.
