  • Buying Guide: Camera Lens

    Camera lenses play a pivotal role in image capture to the extent that an average camera with a good lens will take better photos than a high-end camera with a mediocre lens.

canon ef 50mm f18 stm camera lens is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Fantastic Lens This is an upgrade to the old 'Nifty 50' or 'Plastic Fantastic' 50mm prime lens, an old time classic because of the great quality photos it could take for the very low price. This upgraded STM model improves on the original in various ways, including: - Much more quiet motor thanks to the STM (Canon Stepping Motor) system, for quicker and quiet focus - Improved bokeh (background blur effect) due to using 7 instead of 5 aperture blades - Better build quality including a metal mount This camera is fantastic for street photography. Only warning is that on a cropped sensor (APS-C) found on many low/mid level Canon cameras (and even some top end ones like the 7D MKII) 50mm can be a bit narrow. So you'll need to move back from your subjects considerably more compared to an 18mm zoom kit lens. The f/1.8 is simply fantastic. The depth of field you get is excellent as a result and is great for portraits. All in all, it's one of the best purchases I've made when it comes to any gadgets and an absolute must for everyone's lens bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crystal clear portraits I've been using this lens for over a month in a variety of circumstances and can't fault it. Great for family and pets indoors in low light and a very versatile street lens. For the price, you can't go wrong.
