    Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens

    Canon

    Wonderfully sharp, fast focusing and petite

    HIGHLIGHTS: excellent image quality, compact form factor and affordable pricing, but with few concessions in build and AF performance.CONSTRUCTION: Slightly smaller and heavier than the prior model, EF 50 1.8 II, aka nifty-fifty, but with significantly better build quality. Improvements include metal mount, sturdier barrel and AF/MF switch, larger focus ring, grippy matte finish and stepping motor (STM). Unfortunately, it has an odd filter size, 49mm, rather than 52 or 58mm common to small Canon lenses.OPTICAL QUALITY: It's the same optical formula as the nifty-fifty, but with tweaks to lens coatings and improved close focus ability. Wide open it's tack sharp center frame, sharper than my nifty-fifty. Corners on full frame, e.g., 6D, are darker and softer than center but equalize by F2.8. On APS-C cameras, e.g., 70D and Rebel, there is little corner darkening or softness since nearly half the image circle is cropped out. Optimal sharpness is at F5.6. Chromatic... 5/5 P.K.

    A massive upgrade from the 50 1.8 - if you have one, it's time to upgrade :)

    BUILD QUALITY: Let’s first talk about the build quality of this new lens. The 50 STM has had a massive upgrade in this area, and feels absolutely fantastic. From the moment I picked up the lens, I knew that it was a complete redesign from the old model, and it sure needed it.On the rear of the lens we now have a metallic mount, something I’m so glad to see. Moving up from the plastic mount has increased it’s weight slightly, but also hugely increases the longevity of this lens. On the front we’ve now got a 49mm filter thread, which is even smaller than the old 52mm thread.And even the little things like the AF/MF switch has gotten an upgrade. It’s no longer a little button that seems like it could break easily. Which is just great to see.FOCUS RING: One of the old nifty fifty’s worst parts was it’s focus ring. It was small, fiddly and in the wrong posititon at the end of the lens.And fortunately on the new 50 stm... 5/5 Chris Winter (Australia) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    5/5 Laura F. (Saint Louis, MO) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon SLR Cameras (Certified Refurbished) (Electronics) Great lens, even better because it was for refurb price. I've had a lot of success with outdoor photos - both sports and portrait. Took a bunch at the zoo yesterday, I've uploaded a few. While the (fluffy) tiger was obviously stationary, the other two subjects were moving quite quickly. I think they look great. Disclaimer, I am NOT a professional photographer, nor claim to even be good. I shoot primarily on auto with my aging Canon T3. Indoors is much harder, but my camera body would probably need an upgrade to get great indoor photos. Or an external flash. Or something. But if you're a soccer mom or someone looking to get closer to outdoor subjects, don't hesitate.

    For 28 bucks?

    So what do you get for 28 bucks?I am a pro and thought i would give this a try before i go and drop 5 large on a real wide angle lens.The Good:Pretty nice glass for the money, in the pic with the wire rim of my readers the glass is pretty clear, better than i expected for the money for the macro only part. Given you are putting another layer of glass between your subject and the sensor i could see using this now and again. It did mess with the AF a little so I switched to MF and simply moved the camera closer till i got the focus point I wanted.Doesn't take a lot of light away.As for the wide angle, well it's ok. If I zoom up a little to get rid of the vignetting it seems to have mostly a usable area but......Now for the Bad:The focus drops off severely around the outer edges and there is some color aberrations to contend with along the edges as well.

    Canon EF 24-70mm vs. 24-105mm IS: Read this if you are a hobbyist

    I am a hobbyist and this review is for people like me. What I mean by that is that I take pictures for fun and nobody buys my pictures. I mostly shoot landscape, nature, and portraits of family, friends, and relatives. I will refer to 24-70mm as the 70, and the 24-105mm IS as the 105. I first made the mistake of buying the 70, then I returned it with a hefty restocking fee and bought the 105 - I don't have the slightest regret and I could not be happier. I'm taking my time to write this review so that you can spend your hard earned money wisely. Let's analyze the trade-off between the two:* Both lenses have excellent build and image quality. So these are not differentiating factors.* The one and only advantage of the 70 is the one smaller f-stop. For me, this means more blur when I shoot portraits, so this is all good.* The advantage of 105 over the 70 are as follows:- You get an extra 35mm, which is 50% more zoom. I like this.- You get a 3-stop IS.

    Wonderful general purpose lens, with the expected limitations

    The name of the game here is portability, flexibility, and good but not incredible image quality.This lens is often tagged a "walkabout" lens, and that's a good description. There's nothing better if you want to carry camera and lens about and get a variety of shots in the range from wide angle to short telephoto. It's difficult for lens designers to make all the compromises necessary to have a lens go from wide angle to telephoto, and have a max focal length over four times the widest focal length, but Canon has done a good job here. The image stabilization works excellently when hand held (it cuts image quality if you use the stabilization from a tripod, though). The f/4 maximum aperture cuts the size and weight down quite a bit. Image quality is excellent for a zoom from about 30mm up to 90mm, good from 90mm to 105mm, and tolerable from 24 to 30mm (getting better in the 28 to 30mm range). As expected, image quality is best stopped down to about f/8, but is still... 4/5 M. Broderick (Oklahoma City, OK USA) - See all my reviews, May 10, 2007

    Good lens for most, but not for all, and not the best you can get:

    This is a great range for use as an every day walk around lens. It's very versatile, light and produces great image sharpness throughout the range. There is a bit of vignetting at the wide end, which I actually like. But there is also quite a bit of barrel distortion at the wide end, which I dislike. This is quite noticeable when shooting interiors architecture; it can be corrected in software however it can be a hassle.Also, being an f4 lens, this lens is simply not fast enough for me. I shoot a lot of images where I want the out of focus areas (bokeh) to be glassy smooth and creamy (for weddings, macros, portraits and such) and you cannot get that with this lens as good as you can with the 24-70 f2.8. Granted, in the 70mm-105mm range at f4, the bokeh looks pretty great and the 24-70 can't even get there. If you zoom all the way in, your DOF will be low and pretty darn smooth though in my case, I just prefer the look and bokeh of the 24-70 overall rather than this lens.

    Tack sharp

    After several years of use of the prior iteration of this lens, I've now had about a month of use with the II. This lens is beautifully sharp - absolutely no question as to it being an improvement of what was already a wonderful lens. Generally speaking, I've found that I do not sharpen images in post to the extent that I used to, if at all, with no changes to camera settings. I've been using this with a full frame (5D III) and this is definitely my standard lens that I walk around with now. While this model is still heavy, it's significantly lighter than the last model. Though I don't particularly notice that around my neck, I find that the camera sits better against my chest with a standard neck strap than it did with the earlier lens, which tended to pull down on the camera body. That said, you may find in a full day of walking that a lighter weight lens is preferable. There are definitely days when I feel like just putting a 50mm prime on the camera and calling it a day... 5/5 Dr. Stuart Gitlow (Providence, RI United States) - See all my reviews, October 17, 2012

    YOU'RE NOW TUNED INTO THE GREATEST...

    B.I.W. (BEST IN THE WORLD)Lets start there. This is probably the greatest lens I've ever used... challenged only by the Canon 70-200mm L IS II. It is unbelievably sharp throughout the zoom range. I've taken shots that would rival the most expensive primes. Focusing is almost instantaneous. You target it, and it focuses... Don't blink. The build is solid and strong. It is not nearly as heavy though as the previous model which seemed to be more of a metal body. In addition to being lighter, this lens is also shorter making it easier to travel with and more fun to shoot with. This EF lens features a zoom lock which prevents the barrel from zooming out while hanging from the neckstrap and also has full-time manual focusing (like most Canon lenses).SCARLETT JOHANSSON HAS BAD PENMANSHIPA few things I didn't love...

    If I could only have 1 lens, this would be the one.

    I Upgraded from the first version and have noticed a difference (slightly) in several areas. Faster, sharper and quieter. The first version was and is a great lens. And with most electronics these days, if the quality was good when it came out, it is still good today, there just is a product on the market that is better. So the big question that most ask is "is it worth the upgrade" (expense). Well for me it was. Considering I was able to sell my v1 and add a bit more money to that amount to get the v2. I also did have to buy a couple new 82 mm filters. I always keep a quality filter on my glass (this is something that some people just don't agree with). Their argument (and it is a good argument with valid considerations) goes something like this - why would you spend thousands of dollars on glass and then put a lesser or cheap plain of glass in front of it. I totally agree with that conceptually. However, I would rather have the protection (insurance) than be a... 5/5 Tim Z.

    For the price it's worth it.

    For what this is I have no problem with the price versus quality. Here are a few things left out of the product information that you may want to know:It comes with two different color temperature lenses. The one shown is obviously clear, the other is a pale amber color. The manual says the color temperature range is 5500K ~ 6500K but they don't have anything else to say about the lenses.For people complaining you didn't get an instruction manual... you are better off without it. The manual-ette provides either conflicting information or no information at all for what you need to know.It keeps referring to the optional AC adapter as a "charger", says not to leave rechargeable batteries in it when using the "charger", and it does not tell you a thing about what kind of AC adapter to use. I have tested it and connecting an AC adapter DOES NOT provide any charge current at all to any batteries in place.

    a great general-purpose lense

    I bought this lens four years ago and have shot around 6,000 photos with it (4000 digital, 2000 35mm). Autofocus is very fast and quiet, which is typical of the Canon USM lenses. I would not recommend a Canon lens that does not have the ultrasonic motor (USM) focusing. Optics are sharp throughout the focusing range.The lens is fairly heavy and after a few months of use, you will likely find that the weight of the glass is enough to make the lens telescope out when it's around your neck. If you want a compact lens that will let you take great pictures in a wide range of settings, this is probably the best lens you could get for a Canon camera. If you're a pro, you'll probably have a backpack full of lenses and you're not reading this anyway, so I'm not talking to you. If you want something you can sling over your shoulder and not think about when you take the kids to Disney World, get a cheaper, lighter lens.The Image Stabilizer (IS) makes the lens a lot more... 5/5 T.

    Excellent Walkabout Lens

    While I considered purchasing a Canon 10D, I also started looking for a good first lens. Most of the reviewers and Canonites on the various forums suggested this lens as a good starting point.The 28-135mm IS USM Zoom is the one I use all the time now on the Canon 10D, and that will be the case until I get over the sticker shock of the 10D/28--135mm combo and start adding other lenses to my kit.In the meantime, this lens gets the job done very well. It gives you good range for a variety of of shots, from portraits to telephotos. There is even a macro mode, which gives you the opportunity to do close-ups--not really a true macro, but okay for shots of flowers, your kitty cat's face, etc. It is the flexibility of this lens that makes it so appealing if all you have is just one lens. And remember that if you mount this lens on a digital camera, like the 10D, the range is actually extended by a factor of 1.6.The USM focuses fast, and the Image... 5/5 Andrew Simmons (Fresno, CA USA) - See all my reviews, June 20, 2003
