Additional Information

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome After testing this lens, I'm really happy with its performance. I used a Canon f1.4 USM for a long time, I decided to upgrade with this one. The optical quality of this new 1.8 STM is a little better than the 1.4 USM. It is very sharp, with beautiful contrast and not flare in backlighting situations. The background blur is wonderful! The auto focus is simply perfect! I like a lot the metal mount that it has. Lightweight. The finish of this lens is very attractive. Bought with the Canon lens hood, which is highly recomended, nice quality! If you are thinking to buy a 50 mm from Canon, it is the glass! The price is a bargain!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy! I'm a rookie photographer, but I can still take some great pics and I have. I have been watching for products to come out and this was one of the newest that is a great price! Little skeptical I do my research and there wasn't anything about how well this was going to be just what the previous version did and the hopeful upgrades. Well I got it today and took a few pics with it in different settings and it was amazing. AF was super smooth, and the addition of the metal mount makes it fit perfect and very sturdy. I would recommend this to anyone looking to get some great shots out of a cheaper lens but one that still has great quality! Shipped over night was perfect!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Must have lens for any shooter I just bought this lens a week ago for my 6D and I've been using it for some portraits and low light situations and I love it. I went with this model because I didn't like the cheap feel of the original 50mm lens. Its definitely built a lot better than the original. Although the optics seem unchanged from the original and image quality is about the same, its still the best for your buck. FYI, at f/1.8 its not as sharp as I would've wished it would be, definitely sharpest at f/2.8. If you want a great 50mm lens with great build quality, silent AF, and great image quality, I'd definitely recommend this to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Little Engine That Could! Small enough to get lost in your camera bag. powerful enough to make sure it doesn't - The lens meets, and in some cases exceeds the manufacturer's specifications. Mounted on a 7D, it produced sharp images as close as ten inches from the subject (lists 1.15 feet as the minimum), and has little to no visible distortion when shooting at approx twenty feet (I shot a barn door with vertical, diagonal, and horizontal boarding, then put the image into the lens correction filter on Photoshop with the grid displayed to determine how accurate it was) - overall, it looks to be a great addition to your arsenal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorite Lens I have a passion for crisp- clear photos but am on a budget. This lens on my t4i makes it easy to get the shot I want. I am spending much less time post-processing; I find little to no distortion or chromatic aberration wide open. I get the crisp- clear look I'm reaching for with this lens. The colors are vibrant right out of the camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Prime Lens I received this as a Christmas gift. I don't own a lot of lenses yet, so far I am in love! This is my first lens that can get down to an aperture below a 3.5. The bokeh a is great and it's useful in low light situations. definitely worth the purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb lenses! I own the 50mm F1.8 STM and the EF 85 F1.8 and, in my humble opinion, the former outperforms the latter, at least my portraits are more crispy with the 50mm than with the 85mm. In fact, with this latter, some pictures are a little blurred or out of focus despite I shoot at a high speed. Maybe is my fault, but with the 50mm a vast majority of my closeup portraits are keepers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great standard lens I purchased this new for my 6D. The picture quality wide-open evokes phrases like "dreamy" or "soft-focus." Step it down to F/2.8, and it becomes a good lens. Step it down to between F/4 and F/8, and its sharpness is up there with heavier, pricier, 50mm primes. Basically, it's light, inexpensive, super-sharp when stepped down, and everyone should have one in their bag.
