Reviews & Community QA

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Lens, Bad Packaging Great versatile lens, great for shooting in lower light. Great to have with a larger zoom lens as a pair. However, SO MUCH PLASTIC came in the box. The box itself was way bigger than necessary, and filled with all sorts of bubble wraps (one of which was literally 5 ft long), casings, plastic bags, and bits that make you feel like you're literally killing a whale by wanting to do photography. Please Canon, we love your products, but it's tough for us environmentally conscious folks to legitimize supporting companies that are so excessively wasteful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crystal clear images I'm new to using Canon cameras and lenses and I have to say that I am definitely impressed. We received a camera as a wedding gift and I ordered this lens so we could take it with us on our honeymoon. The images came out beautifully. Love this lens, definitely going to be purchasing another lens very soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes me look better than I am! I bought this lens two weeks ago, and having shot only two subjects since then, can't be more happy with portrait outcome with this little gem. It's teaching me A LOT, which is why I selected it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great Lens, over priced My thoughts on this lens is simply great. However I stopped shopping on qvc for my camera accessories. First of all they are real over priced, you would save more money shopping somewhere else for your lenses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for great price I bought the lense as part of the kit a week ago great buy for the apc-s photographers and after using it over easter weekend i had blast. The 10-18 is good for action and parties for the great wide angles it can produce. However the EF 50 to simply put it ,a bargain price for a low light bokeh beast! Very sharp lense! Canon may have out-done themselves on this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bang for the buck! I LOVE this lens. It is very versatile, works well for landscapes, portraits, etc. Every picture I take with it is sharp, it focuses well both manually and with auto focus. Auto focus is fast. Bokeh is fantastic, colors turn out great. I'm using it with the rebel T5. :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great IQ. Incredible Value. Mediocre Focusing. Canon's latest Nifty Fifty does not disappoint. The EF 50mm f/1.8 STM should be in everyone amateur photographer's bag. This was the least expensive lens I've purchased, yet I always reach for it when high image quality and good bokeh is what I'm seeking. I'm incredibly happy with this lens when used for portraits, and when low lighting is a challenge. I believe this was Canon's third prime lens with the newer STM focusing system, so I would have expected that the 40mm and then the 24mm 2.8 pancake lens would have been a good way to learn how to do quick focusing. I do find that my older STM lenses, such as the 24mm f2.8 STM (not the 40mm f/2.8 STM which seems clunkier), and the two kit lenses released in 2013 (18-55 STM and 55-250 STM) and the 10-18 STM are all quicker and quieter at focusing than the STM Nifty Fifty. Furthermore, and perhaps I'm just spoiled, but the two (at this time) lenses using nano USM are even quicker (focusing) than the STM lenses and substantially quieter than the 50mm. It is also not built quite as well as most of the recent EF-S lenses, but I'm not docking it for that. The imaging elements on the inside are still stellar, so who really cares how robust it "feels"? This 50mm at 1.8 is an incredible value for the clarity and maximum aperture it offers. I do use it frequently. I just don't prefer it for video. The volume of the sound made when focusing isn't the deal breaker for me since I use a shotgun or lavlier mic, but the searching for focus, which is admittedly partially due to the camera itself, is not good enough for video. I cannot imagine this lens getting replaced/upgraded anytime soon, and it is sure not to drop in price much more than the already rock-bottom value. If you have a medium kit zoom and a long kit zoom lens, this latest STM version of the f/1.8 Nifty Fifty deserves a spot in your camera bag, and should definitely be on your camera when it comes to inexpensive but quality portraiture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens I absolutely love this lens and it's a great prime lens to start out with. Although it does make noises when it it focusing (even on manual). Overall, it produces great effects and blurring looks very professional. Also, because this is a prime lens and not a zoom lens it is important to keep in mind that everything is a lot more zoomed in than you think, but its a great lens for portrait shots and nice close up shots!
