    Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Camera Lens

    Canon

    Sharp, fast, inexpensive

    Once upon a time the 50 mm lens was THE standard camera lens and was THE optical benchmark by which manufacturers were judged and compared. Although the basic lens focus has now shifted (at least at the low to mid amateur level) to zooms - you can still benefit from years of research and development that went into designing the 50 mm lens and this here lens may be the best lens, dollar for dollar, that you can ever buy. The question is can you afford not to own this lens?Years of development have brought us a lens that has a fast aperture of 1.8 - far faster than any consumer zoom lens - and that is sharp as a filed tack. Be forewarned about the sharpness . . . if you are taking pictures of people, this lens is unyielding in its sharpness and may well surprise you and your subjects whose every blemish is captured. The lens has a fabulously shallow depth of field if you want to use the 1.8 aperture to blow out a background. This lens is also ridiculously inexpensive... 5/5 Richard Aubin (Dallas, Texas USA) - See all my reviews, April 10, 2005

    Wow! My theory now is that Canon doesn't put this baby as their kit lens because many people would decide that they DONT NEED ANOTHER ONE! And many of them would be right!Like others, I bought the Rebel XT and the 28-135 IS lens. The 28-135 is heavy and priced like a gold brick.

It shows the fire in the colors you photograph. The wide aperture means candles can be excellent lights for portraits. Its narrow field is great.There are pitfalls though. I snapped a pic of my face at arm's length using autofocus a while back and (1) the focus locked on the tip of my nose and my face was already blurring (2) the lens was so sharp that I saw blackheads clearly on my nose tip I can't really see in the mirror (doh!).

    Excellent Value

    I've had the 50mm f1.8 for about three months now, so I wanted to put in my two cents worth after a little field use. What originally attracted me to this lens was, obviously, the price. It is very, very inexpensive. This is likely due to the fact that the housing is, unlike its predecessor the Mark I, entirely plastic. That initially put me off, but after seeing some images posted that had been taken with this lens (and after seeing the prices of the f1.4 and the used mark I)I decided that I really had nothing to lose. There are, as with most lenses good and bad elements to this lens. Lets start with the bad.Keep in mind that if you are shooting a canon DSLR (as I am) this 50mm lens actually behaves as an 80mm lens, so it isn't that terribly wide. The fact that it is functionally 80mm can make framing shots a bit difficult. This is definitely a secondary lens and really isn't that appropriate for a "walking around lens." At least it isn't for me, as I tend to... 4/5 Ryan Davis (Jersey City, NJ) - See all my reviews, December 30, 2005

    For ~$150, you cant beat this lens!

    I am a beginner photo-hobbiest and recently purchased my first DSLR (t3i) that came with a 18-55mm lens. I wanted a good telephoto lens for taking those long distance shots of animals and landscapes without spending more for a lens then I did the camera. For $150 i dont think you could beat this lens. The zoom is just about perfect for my use. I can get nice clear 2/3 fame shots of a bird from 100 meters away without feeling (and looking) like I am carrying a telescope around my neck. To a complete beginners eye (being me) the pictures are beautifully clear and the AF is quite fast and the Image Stabilization (IS) really helps shooting handheld at max or near max zooms. I slapped a polarizer and lens hood on and hit the beach and ended up with some pictures that looked like they could have been in a magazine or post card (at least to my untrained eye).So, if you are an amateur, beginner, or hobbiest (or all of the above like me) and want a great, inexpensive telephoto lens... 5/5 Infinite-T "High Voltage" (Seattle) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

If you are on a budget and on the consumer end of the prosumer spectrum, like me... and, like me, you still want a good, cheap zoom lens. This is it. (Save extra buying the bulk packaging version)Now, if you are more on the pro end of the prosumer spectrum, you probably know to look for a lens with USM and IS.If you buy this lens, be aware that you'll have to use your tripod in low light situations... there's no IS on this lens.It's a lens best used outside with plenty of day light, hey... it's an f/4-5.6, so no surprise there.Good glass though, I've achieved better pictures with this lens than the with the 35-80 which is also f/4-5.6 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 10, 2014

    great for what it is

    i needed a zoom for those times when i needed to get close to something that was VERY far away...like the other side of a valley, or 3 blocks away, or at the other side of the park, etc.in all these situations, I knew i'd most likely be outside in some kind of day light...so, as long as I'm not shooting at NIGHT, then I knew i'd be just fine. the aperture on this lens, like any kit lens, is not very compelling. but, for the price point, and for my lousy budget, this lens filled a need.I have my 16mm, 35mm, and 50mm lenses, all with f1.5 or f1.8 for serious video work, even in low light situations. so this lens made a nice addition for those other times when i just wished i could get in closer (and had the light to do it)So, the actual mechanics and build of this lens: plastic, feels cheap, like a toy, auto focus is fidgety during tight zooms, but that makes sense for any zoom lens really. the good news, again, is the cheap price point... 4/5 Jered Mckenna "Jered" (Statesboro, GA USA) - See all my reviews, April 8, 2014

    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

    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'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.

    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 "mikebinok" (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. I... 4/5 T.

    Unbelievably sharp!

    I own several above average lens including a few primes and this thing is the sharpest I've ever had the pleasure of using.I knew it was going to be sharp by the reviews that I scanned through but I didn't realize that it would be so sharp completely wide open. Usually, when a lens is fast with a wide aperture, you tend to reserve that for emergency last ditch situations in low light because subjects get soft. But not with this lens.With it completely open, it's sharper than any of my zoom lens and rivals most of my primes at their peak settings. With it stopped down a bit, it blows everything away.Personally, most of the times, I don't like an extremely shallow DOF so I tend to stop it down and boy is this thing sharp!Only gripe is that even with the 2.0.2 firmware for the EOS M, it still hunts a bit in low light. Not a big deal for me and also don't know if its the lens or the body because I don't have another model lens to compare... 5/5 S. Kim (Orange County, CA) - See all my reviews, August 14, 2013

    Good lens, but know what you are getting

    This lens is a "manual lens" and many folks today probably don't know what that means. I've been using SLR or DSLR cameras for almost 30 years, and the definition didn't fully register with me until I received this lens.When you look through the viewfinder of an SLR/DSLR camera, you want to focus with the aperture completely open. This condition gives you the most light to see the subject and gives you the narrowest depth of field so that you can focus most precisely. Most lenses made in the last 30 years or so have been "automatic" in the sense that they keep the aperture completely open when you are looking through the viewfinder. When you press the shutter button, the aperture closes to whatever you have set (or whatever the camera's computer sets) just before the camera takes the image. For instance, if your lens has a maximum aperture of f3.5 and you are shooting at f8, then the lens is at f3.5 as you frame the picture.

The sharpness leave a little to be desired (easily cleaned up in Photoshop Elements or other software) and you'll be shooting at F8 or smaller so have to pump up the ISO or use very long shutter speeds for low light, BUT it's got a VERY sturdy tripod mount on the lens providing a more central weight distribution than putting the camera on tripod and having this long lens hanging on and tipping forward unless the grip is very tight. I like the lens and for the occasional times I need to "reach out there" 500-1000mm I couldn't justify the difference in price ​for a name brand telephoto. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 29, 2013

    At long last, a Canon pancake lens for SLRs.

    "Pancake" lenses have always had an appeal to SLR shooters. Their dimunitive size and weight, as well as overall simplicity, make them ideal as walkaround lenses, and many find the focal length of 40mm (give or take a few mm) much to their liking for general photography. Contax, Pentax, Nikon and other manufacturers have produced their offerings throughout the modern photographic era. Panasonic and Olympus have pancake lenses for their micro 4/3 lenses. For some mysterious reason, Canon has remained silent on the issue since 1965, when it produced the FLP 38/2.8 for a limited time. Until now. Let the celebration begin.I had the pleasure of owning the Pentax and Contax Zeiss lenses in the days of film. I loved them both, and they were never far from reach. When I bought Canon dSLRs, due to lack of any Canon pancake lens being available, I adapted both the Contax Zeiss and the Pentax pancakes to work on my 5D, 5D2 and 40D. Of course, this arrangement has serious limitations,... 5/5 Rick "lensman" (USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Lens (Electronics) "Pancake" lenses have always had an appeal to SLR shooters.

    Great Lens (Even Greater for Full-Frame Cameras)

    Before going into the details of my review, I'd like to start off by saying...if you have the money on hand, you should immediately buy this lens. I am extremely pleased so far - this is a lightweight, yet solidly built, and extremely affordable performer. While two hundred bucks doesn't seem "affordable" at first, it delivers very solid results that you could expect from lenses that cost several times as much.To give some background: I do shoot professionally, but got this lens mostly for personal use - I simply prefer the versatility of a zoom lens for professional work, although seeing the impressive results I might incorporate it for future assignments. I currently own two bodies, a 5D Mark II and a 7D. While my main lenses are high-end (the 24-105L, 70-200L 2.8 IS II, and 100mm Macro), since I started off with a Rebel series body I also am familiar with a lot of the cheaper lenses Canon sells, including the 50mm f/1.8.

    Small in size but great in features and quality

    Please don't take the Amazon star rating too serious - every lens has its pros and cons that I wouldn't want to squeeze into a single one-dimensional figure...A quick note about me: I have been into SLR cameras and lenses for more than 20 years - as a hobby in the beginning and professionally later. Maybe because of my technical background I started testing my own lenses quite a while ago. I have a (no longer so) little test lab of my own where I do 6 different image quality tests (after taking a lens out for a while).Canon's first-ever "pancake" EF lens is a real treat. It's so small that it looks like a 20 mm extension ring rather than a lens and yet it feels solid as a rock and delivers very respectable image quality. It comes with Canon's stepping motor technology (STM) that allows continuous AF during video recording or live-view mode (when used with a hybrid CMOS AF system) and that gives the lens a fast, silent and accurate autofocus performance.

    One of the best wide angle primes at a bargain price.I

    I am using this lens on a Canon 5D Mark II. I have several zoom lenses in this range, but was looking for a fast, superwide prime. The choice would be this or the Canon 14L II. This is the same as the Samyang, rebranded.After receiving the lens, I ran some tests against 16-35 2.8, and sigma 12-24, and was floored. The corner to corner sharpness of this lens is fantastic. I peaks at around 5.6, but the corners at 2.8 are better than the other 2 lenses at f11. the microcontrast and color is very good. The barrel distortion is hefty, and complex with a mustache distortion, however, often not well visible in landscape, but visible in architectural images. It is correctable using a $25 program called ptlens, and there is also a profile for acr 6.1 out there, which works great. It is an absolute bargain. I purchased a focus confirmation chip for 14 from ebay, glued it on, and I get focus confirmation too.feb 2012 updateI have had this lens along side Nikon... 5/5 K.

    Sharpest lens I ever used, but check for issues

    This is the new version with the auto-exposure chip (only for Nikon mount) and UMC coating. My impressions:Pros:-Sharp, sharp, sharp. Even at f/2.8, this lens is sharp. At its sharpest aperture, f/5.6, it's sharp corner-to-corner on an APS-C camera.-Very good build quality. Solid weighty feel, brass mount, and smooth dampened focus ring.-By far the least expensive 14mm around.-No problems with auto-exposure or focus confirmation (including the electronic rangefinder function on newer Nikon bodies)-FX or DXCons:-Cheap rear cap fits a little loose. I swapped mine with a Nikon cap.-Has significant mustache-type barrel distortion in the middle of the frame. Not a lens for architectural photography. However, this can be mostly corrected in post-processing (with the $25 software PTLens, or user-created Lightroom profiles on the net).Some considerations:-Like some other ultra wide-angle lenses, the... 4/5 J.

    It COULD be a great lens... but this lens will EAT YOUR DUST!

    I loved this lens when I first bought it. I own a Canon 5d MK II which I use for both professional photography and professional video production. In fact, I loved this lens so much that I went and bought the Rokinon 85mm, too. Then IT happened. And IT changed my perspective on the Rokinons. I use to share the sentiments held by most of the reviewers here on Amazon, but there is one big flaw in this lens, and it should be taken into consideration before you pull the plug and buy one.Okay... I'll get right to the point. My first Rokinon 14mm started out great but somehow got dust inside the lens between the lens elements after only 3 months of use. At first I thought I could blow it out with compressed air, but had no such luck. I had a commercial shoot that week that required my Rokinon 14mm, so in a pinch, I bought ANOTHER one. I chalked up the last problem to bad luck. Unfortunately, after owning the SECOND Rokinon 14mm for only a month, the same thing happened... 1/5 Derek C. Doublin "Give me ALL the THINGS!"
