Key Features

  • Normal-length prime is designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, however, can also be used with APS-C models where it provides an 80mm equivalent focal length
  • It’s easy to capture superb portraits, or bold, artistic photos and movies with the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM – the wide f/1.8 maximum aperture provides precise control over the depth of field. This means you can achieve blurry, soft backgrounds, with sharp foregrounds
  • Super Spectra coating has been applied to individual elements to minimize ghosting and flare for greater contrast and colour neutrality when working in strong lighting conditions
  • The EF 50MM f/1.8 STM features stepping motor technology which delivers fast, smooth and near-silent autofocus capability. This is particularly beneficial when shooting movies or shooting in live view mode.
  • Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques
  • The f/1.8 aperture lets more light into the lens, so you can comfortably shoot in darker conditions, allowing you to shoot candid handheld shots without the use of a tripod
