Product Details

A 50mm is the stable of the majority of camera bags.  On full frame cameras, it's focal length is about the same as the human eye.  On Canon APS-C cameras, its a bit more.  But in both cases, it is the perfect portrait lens to have.  What's more, this third generation EF lens, now has an STM motor ideal for videographers who want a fast aperture suited to studio, interview, night-time movie making.

An affordable, high quality lens that’s perfect for creative portraits and low-light photos. Blur backgrounds to make your subject stand out, and enjoy smooth near-silent STM focusing when shooting movies.

A fantastic lens for portraits

The EF 50mm f/1.8 STM blurs the background behind your subject so they really stand out. It will also let you fill the frame without getting uncomfortably close, making it easier to get a natural expression on their face.

When used on a full-frame EOS camera the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM acts as a standard lens, giving a perspective, similar to that of the human eye – ideal for high-quality everyday photography.

Fast, virtually silent focusing

Near-silent STM technology focuses extremely quickly when shooting still photos, so you can react suddenly to capture fleeting moments. When capturing video focusing is smoother and slower, for footage that has a professional cinematic look to it.

A great performer in low-light conditions

The EF 50mm f/1.8 STM lets in lots of light, so you can keep shooting even when conditions begin to get dark. Capture the mood of the moment using atmospheric available light – you’ll love the results!

Super-sharp image quality

This fixed, non-zooming lens delivers superb images, whether you’re shooting photos or movies. Sharpness is enhanced, contrast is boosted and distortion is reduced for a more natural result.

The glass elements used in the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM are layered with Canon’s bespoke Super Spectra coating, which prevents flare and ghosting when shooting into the light.

Compact ‘go-everywhere’ design

The diminutive EF 50mm f/1.8 STM weighs just 160g and is only 40mm long, so you’ll always have room for it in your bag. A tactile manual focus ring is easy to find and use without taking the camera away from your eye.

Kenko Extension Tube Set

  • Enables Closer Focusing
  • 12mm, 20mm, 36mm Tubes
  • Works Individually or Combined
  • Provides Macro Capability
  • Retains Auto Focus Capability
  • Metal Mounts

Extension tubes are designed to enable a lens to focus closer than its normal set minimum focusing distance. Getting closer has the effect of magnifying your subject (making it appear larger in the viewfinder and in your pictures). They are exceptionally useful for macro photography, enabling you to convert almost any lens into a macro lens at a fraction of the cost while maintaining its original optical quality.

The DG extension tubes have no optics. They are mounted in between the camera body and lens to create more distance between the lens and film plane. By moving the lens father away from the film or CCD sensor in the camera, the lens is forced to focus much closer than normal. The greater the length of the extension tube, the closer the lens can focus.

The KENKO DG AUTO EXTENSION TUBE SET contains three tubes of different length, a 12mm, 20mm, and 36mm, which can be used individually or in any combination to obtain the desired magnification. Kenko's Auto Focus extension tubes are designed with all the circuitry and mechanical coupling to maintain autofocus and TTL auto exposure with most lenses, given there is enough light to activate the camera’s AF system properly.

If you’re looking for a small and light macro lens to accompany your APS-C sensor camera, the Canon EF-S 35mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM is an ideal choice. With a 35mm focal length giving you an equivalent of 56mm, it doubles up as an every day or walk around lens, giving you extra flexibility.

Amateur Photographer

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 genres.

ePHOTOzine

Canon's old 'Nifty Fifty' was a popular lens despite its poor build quality as it represented such good value for money. Even though this lens costs more than its predecessor, it still represents great value due to the high levels of sharpness it produces.

LensTip.com

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 manual focus ring which is actually useful.

Photography BLOG

The Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM is an appealingly simple, compact and capable lens that's equally at home on an APS-C or full-frame DSLR camera. It's also very cheap, making it a worthy addition to any EOS user's camera bag.

PhotoReview

Design- and price-wise, the EF-S 35mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM lens is targeted mainly at snapshooters and photo enthusiasts who use one of Canon’s cropped-sensor (APS-C) cameras. However, it is also worthy of consideration by owners to the flagship APS-C models like the EOS 7D Mark II for its features,...

I bought this 50mm lens for my toy photography hobby primarily and I'm really happy with the crisp results I get from this lens paired with my Canon 250D I plan on using this lens for street photography too. It's such a versatile lens to have in your kit bag.

Been thinking about adding this small prime lens to my kit for some time. Not disappointed with first attempts at table to work. Large aperture great for blurring background. I realise there are many images I have taken with a zoom that would have been improved with this lens.

Inexpensive, tack sharp, fast focusing prime lens. Good for portraits as with a cropped sensor camera the effective focal length is 80mm. At wide apertures gives very pleasing bokeh. This lens is light and compact and would make a good walk around lens

Nice lens

Very

Bought this lens recently after watching some reviews online. I am just learning DSLR photography but I have found this lens really easy to set up and use. I have had some great results over the first few days and look forward to using it more.

Littlewoods

An awesome fast lens, a must for any photographers kit, light weight and simple to use, wide apeture and good in low light

Wilkinson Cameras

Very sharp little lens at good price. Light and small enough to fit in any bag.

Argos

Having put up with kit zoom lenses for a couple of years it was time to branch out into a nice, fast, prime. This is highly recommended in the technical press and nicely fitted my price bracket. So far very pleased with winter shots that wouls have needed a high ISO otherwise.
