Canon EF 50mm f/1

What is Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens?

The Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM lens is just Canon’s third full-frame compatible lens to have STM technology, and it makes considerably more sense than the previous one. Because most recent Canon crop sensor bodies can leverage that technology (the Canon 70D and 7DMKII most effectively because of the Dual Pixel AF technology), and because STM is an improvement over the old micro-motor technology, the use of STM makes perfect sense in Canon’s lower end and crop-sensor specific lenses.

Short Description of Canon EF 50mm

When compared to the conventional zoom lens that comes with your EOS, the wide f/1.8 aperture lets in more than 8x the quantity of light. This results in crisper photographs with less motion blur and a lower requirement for flash in dimly lit situations, allowing you to capture the ambiance of a low-light scene with ease.

The 50mm focal length allows you to fill the frame with your subject from a comfortable distance, which makes it an excellent portrait lens. The EF 50mm f/1.8 STM is an excellent everyday lens to always carry with your EOS camera because of its similar viewpoint to the human eye and its compact size.

STM Technology of The lens

When shooting images, the near-silent STM (Stepping Motor) technology focuses exceptionally quickly, allowing you to respond quickly to catch ephemeral moments. STM makes it easier to make high-quality videos because it provides constant and quiet continuous focusing, ensuring that your movies are smooth and that your soundtracks only record ambient sounds rather than the noise of a focusing motor.

The EF 50mm f/1.8 STM replaces the renowned EF 50mm f/1.8 II lens, which was well-known for providing excellent image quality at a low cost. This current model offers the same excellent photo quality as the previous model, but with a faster, near-silent focus motor and a more durable design that belies its price.

 

Minimum focus and maximum magnification are both shorter.

The earlier lens had a minimum focus distance of 1.5 feet, resulting in a maximum magnification of.15x. This is pretty much the industry standard for 50mm lenses, but it’s also their Achilles’ heel. That’s not a particularly impressive magnification value. However, Canon has solved this with a revised minimum focus distance of only 1.1 feet and a maximum magnification of.21x. This is a far more useful figure, allowing for even more diluted backgrounds and more creative “macro” photos. This is significant to me because I prefer shooting with a 50mm lens in this manner.
