Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Standard Prime Lens

The Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Standard Prime Lens is compact, lightweight fixed focal length lens that is ideal for everyday photos. With a large f/1.8 aperture, it makes for a perfect lens in low-light situations and to produce creative background blur. It's optimal for everything from portraits to fast-moving subjects like children & pets. Continuous autofocus is super-smooth and quiet, thanks to Canon's gear-type stepping motor. That means you can shoot video clips without worrying about hearing the noise of the lens. 

What really sets this lens apart is the newly updated focus ring placement. If you need a lens that can tackle many situations and give you maximum versatility, you can't do much better than this "Nifty-Fifty" from Canon! In the world of photography the 50mm lens is the absolute must-have for any collection. This lens has a fixed focal range of 50mm and is absolutely perfect for an array of uses such as portrait, wedding, detail shots, beautifully manipulated depth-of-field shots and so much more. By keeping the focal range fixed, this lens allows for a much wider aperture range, this is what allows for the depth-of field focus manipulation and the wonderful shots where the subject-matter is crisp and clear while the background is a beautiful blur.
