Every photographer needs a nifty fifty. You won't go wrong by adding this high-quality, yet affordable standard focal length prime lens to your kit bag. 

One of the most versatile focal lengths available

The Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens pairs this classic lens design with enhancements to the AF system and physical design that make it both faster and smaller. Utilising an STM stepping motor, this lens is ideal for both still and video shooting due to its speedy and smooth operation. Further benefitting video shooters, the STM motor also supports the Movie Servo AF mode on select DSLRs for precise and near-silent focusing. An updated exterior design includes a metal lens mount and a re-located focusing ring in order to accommodate the compact overall form factor. The 50mm f/1.8 is a classic, tested lens design, and thanks to enhanced autofocus and a svelte profile, this lens is ideal for everyday shooting in a wide variety of conditions.

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 lens weighs just 160 g 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.

Even after all the YouTube videos telling you what this lens can do I was still blown away at the crisp images, and the amount of light that it lets in that made each photo look like it was taken in a professional studio. I know little to nothing about photography and only use the default/auto settings so this was a great buy, even using the second hand 10 year old Canon M10. Great buy.
PS: You'll need an adapted if you are using a M10.

This is a lens everyone that shoots Canon DSLR and Mirrorless should have in their kit. The 50mm focal length of 50mm is super versatile and combined with the f/1.8 aperture makes for a very versatile lens overall. The build quality and STM focus motors make this lens an absolute steal for the price.
