Design & HandlingThe lens is compact, light and discreet. It's a little less than 1.6"/4 cm long and weighs 5.6 oz/160 g. The build-quality is perfectly respectable: it has a plastic body and metal bayonet, which means it should see you through many years...
Good Discreet, lightweight and compact, Great, doanything lens for beginners, Max aperture of f/1.8, Plenty of creative possibilities, thanks to the depth of field, STM stepping motor, Little distortion, Picture quality at f/8...
Bad Not sharp enough below f/4, No optical stabilization, Pretty noticeable vignetting at max aperture...
Bottom line This new 50mm lens is a perfect way into prime-lens photography: it's relatively cheap and you can be pretty confident in the product you're getting. Picture quality isn't breathtaking, and photos are a bit too soft, but its max aperture of f/1.8 allows y...

Ask any Canon user what they think Canon’s most popular lenses are, and I can guarantee that most will mention the classic EF 50mm f/1.8. Not only is it the most affordable lens in the EF line-up, it’s also well matched to a wide variety of photographic g...
Bottom line The EF 50mm f/1.8 II has long been due a replacement and the arrival of the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM has been met with great interest from the Canon faithful. The addition of the STM motor delivers a much quieter performance, and although its not entirely silen...

The Canon EF 50mm f1.8 STM is as close to a no-brainer as you can get in the EF lens catalogue. It represents one of the most affordable entries to the joys of fixed-focal length ‘prime' lens photography, delivering better quality, superior low-light perf...
Bottom line Canon's EF 50mm f1.8 STM finally upgrades the 24 year old EF 50mm f1.8 II with smoother focusing, more rounded aperture blades, closer focusing and a tougher lens mount. Like its predecessor, it'll gather over eight times more light than a typical kit zoom, ma...

To buy a bright portrait- or concert-photography lens, you have to dig deep. With a Canon APS-C SLR like the Canon 1200D or the Canon 760D, that isn't needed. The Canon 50 mm f/1.8 STM is bright, compact and inexpensive. That the STM motor provides terrif...

The Canon EF 50mm ƒ/1.8 STM is the third lens in the 50mm line for Canon, the original having been released in 1987 and updated in version II in 1990. Twenty-five years later, the lens has been overhauled with the new STM focusing system and a new look, b...
Bottom line It's probably not as sharp as some people would like when used wide open, but stopped down to ƒ/2.8 or ƒ/4, it's as sharp as sharp gets. For the price point, you really can't go wrong with this lens, and it's a welcome improvement in sharpness over the pr...

Many a photographer has looked to Canon's "nifty fifty"—the EF 50mm f/1.8 II USM ($125.99)—as a first lens due to its attractive price and wide aperture. The first update to the lens in nearly two decades, the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM ($125.99), keeps the optics...
Good Sharp at f/1.8. Lightweight. Silent, smooth video focus. Very affordable.
Bad Modest barrel distortion. Slower focus. Can flare. Some fall-off at wide aperture. Omits stabilization. Narrower field of view on APS-C cameras. Hood not included...
Bottom line The Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM is the company's least expensive lens. It's an excellent value, even if it does have some flaws...

After a period of 25 years on the market, the plastic EF 50 mm f/1.8 II finally saw its successor. In May 2015 Canon announced the launch of the EF 50 mm f/1.8 STM which was supposed to come with a metal mount again. The following chart presents a compari...
Good excellent image quality in the frame centre, decent image quality on the edge of the frame, very good control of the chromatic aberration, moderate distortion, slight vignetting on the APSC, moderate astigmatism, silent and accurate autofocus, very good p...
Bad huge vignetting on full frame, very high level of coma.
Bottom line When compared to its predecessor the new Canon EF 50 mm f/1.8 STM features several crucial assets. They are especially visible when it comes to the build quality and the casing. With the newer model you get a metal mount, a bit more compact body and a man...

You might think that you can't go wrong with a lens at this price. But older versions of Canon's popular 50mm f/1.8 weren't always altogether ‘right'. They had a noisy autofocus system based on a simplistic electric motor, and a 5-blade diaphragm that gav...

Bottom line The little lens that could, this nifty-fifty is an affordable marvel that any Canon photographer should own. For the price you get an excellent all-purpose lens with solid optical quality, pleasing bokeh, fast autofocus and more – it's so good that in pre...
