CANON EF 50MM F/1.8 STM LENS
The Nifty Fifty is back, and better than ever
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.
