Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens

The Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 STM is a small, light and affordable lens with a fast f/1.8 aperture, ideal in low light and great for creative depth-of-field. With new optics and a very quiet STM motor, this modern ‘nifty fifty’ will advance your photography.

  • Wide aperture creativity
  • Sharp, quiet focusing
  • Compact & lightweight

This lens offers new creative opportunities for those who are looking to upgrade from the "standard" kit lens.

Small but wow it has an impact! The Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens is small, light and compact. 

An ideal lens for everyday, walk-around shooting, this 50mm f/1.8 is characterised by its bright design for available light shooting and apt depth of field control. The optical design incorporates one aspherical element, which reduces spherical aberrations and distortion. It also sports a Super Spectra coating to minimise flare and ghosting for improved contrast and colour accuracy. An STM motor affords impressively quiet and smooth autofocus performance and full-time manual focus override. Additionally, a configurable Control Ring lets you adjust exposure settings, including ISO, aperture, and exposure compensation, from the lens itself.

  • Normal-length prime is designed for use with full-frame Canon RF-mount mirrorless digital cameras.
  • Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture suits working in difficult lighting conditions and also offers increased control over depth of field.
  • One precision-moulded (PMO) aspherical element suppresses spherical aberrations and distortion for high sharpness and accurate subject rendering.
  • Super Spectra coating has been applied to individual elements to minimise ghosting and flare for greater contrast and colour neutrality when working in strong lighting conditions.
  • STM stepping motor offers fast, quiet, smooth, and accurate autofocus performance that is ideal for video recording as well as still shooting.
  • Configurable Control Ring can be used to adjust a variety of exposure settings, including aperture, ISO, and exposure compensation.
  • The rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

This lens is great for indoor and low light photos. The only detractor I've picked up is that it is a bit slow to refocus in video mode when your subject moves. But then, I bought it for photos, not video, so that doesn't bother me in the slightest.

Great quality

This lens punches above its price class. It takes great photos in low light conditions. The only detractor I've noticed is that it is slow to refocus on video mode when your subject moves. But then, I bought this for photos, and not video, so that doesn't bother me at all.

Affordable quality!
