Compact and lightweight—an outstanding walk-around lens—Canon's EF 50mm f/1.8 STM is a great entry into the world of EOS prime lenses. With an 80mm effective focal-length on APS-C cameras, 50mm on full-frame cameras, it's an excellent prime lens for portraits, action, even nighttime photography. Its bright maximum aperture of f/1.8 helps it not only to excel in low light, but also to capture gorgeous, sharp images and movies with beautiful background blur thanks to its circular 7-blade design. An updated lens arrangement with new lens coatings helps render images with excellent color balance, plus minimized ghosting and flare. Performance is brilliant, with a stepping motor (gear-type STM) to deliver near silent, continuous Movie Servo AF for movies plus speedy, smooth AF for stills. A redesigned exterior with improved focus ring placement makes manual focus adjustments a breeze. Canon's most compact 50mm lens, the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM has a rugged metal mount, plus an improved minimum focusing distance of 1.15 ft. (0.35m) and a maximum magnification of 0.21x. Offering sharp performance for the best in movies and stills, it's a fixed focal length gem—the perfect lens for photographers and moviemakers to expand the creative possibilities with their EOS cameras.

The Nifty Fifty: Great, solid, inexpensive lens

The only reason I didn&#039;t give this 5 stars is because 1) it&#039;s not as perfect optically as Canon L glass, and that counts and 2) it&#039;s not as quiet as I thought it would be.

I had a version before that was actually much quieter than this and was therefore more useful for video. That&#039;s disappointing but not a dealbreaker.

All that said, you&#039;re just not going to beat this lens for price, usability, and size. It&#039;s a bright f/1.8 so you can take photos in low light situations even on crop sensor cameras. It&#039;s a great focal length, it&#039;s compact, and the price is amazing.

This should be in your bag, even if only as a backup to your other lenses.
