    Huge progress!

    • firmer
    • Faster
    • quieter

    The lens has been greatly improved. If you look at its predecessor:
    1. The lens is quieter and focuses faster
    2. Feels more solid.

    Basic lens for every photographer!
    Less plastic, but just as fantastic!

    Good price/quality

    • price quality
    • image quality
    • strong low light performance
    • build quality remains very basic

    This is clearly an entry-level model. For less than half the price of the 1.4 you get a very good lens. Image quality is without a doubt very good. Build quality is all in all decent. You will retain some noise when focusing, but this is certainly not disturbing when taking photos. Otherwise a very nice lens for portraits, still lifes, general photography,... I use this lens on a 700D and I like it at least as much as the 18-135mm that I now use as a zoom lens for outdoor shots.

    Best lens in this price range!

    Vincent Nagelhout | 13 August 2015 | Aperture: 1,8 - 22 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • nice bokeh
    • Fast compared to previous type
    • Super tight photos
    • Performs perfectly in the dark
    • No IS which makes it shaky when filming

    I bought this lens 2 weeks ago and it was a hit! Nice solid product with good quality photos it shoots. The pros will go for an L lens, but I think everyone likes it for the hobby!

    The only downside of the lens is that it doesn't have IS on it. This makes it less suitable for filming. What do you want for that money

    The 50mm is perfect for street and portrait photography. Because it is now equipped with stm, the lens is much quieter than the previous 50 mm F1.8. He is also much faster to focus. Even the bokeh is nicer than the old one. All in all a top lens for a top price!

    Delivery is as I am used to from Coolblue, clear and fast! Thank you coolblue!

    Wonderful to photograph with.
    • Fast and good focus
    • Photosensitivity
    • Deviating diameter

    The compactness of this lens is wonderful. Focuses well. Very suitable for macro shots. For me - who always worked with a zoom lens - it takes some getting used to that the rotating ring does not zoom but focuses. But that went quickly. I find a problem that the different lens diameter makes a different lens hood necessary. I don't really like what I bought in the offer. The matching one from Canon was not yet available.

    Indispensable lens in every kit!
    • Much quieter than previous version
    • Super quality for the price
    • Small and light

    This is an indispensable lens in the kit of every (beginning) photographer. Small, light and almost as sharp as the price. I've had several copies of the 1.4 version but each time had problems with it. This lens is smaller and lighter and despite a few lens flaws (purple fringe, etc.) still strong competition, partly due to the great price. This new version also has the STM motor which is faster, quieter and suitable for filming.
    I am often on the road and this standard lens is standard on my camera. The large aperture gives you the popular "blurred background" look, which is great for portraits, for example. I cannot recommend this one enough!

    Great lens for a great price.
    • Is a Canon
    • very sharp images
    • STM
    • noisey
    • No IS

    I use them mainly for video filming, but also for photography. Is a great lens. The cheapest of the 3 canon 50mm lens, but for this price, is for sure an amazing lens. Good quality plastic, is very noisy, even being a STM, so if you want to use it with a microphone to make an interview, choose another lens. If is for image filming, don't think about it and use it. Is a f/1.8, which is great for dark places, it lets a lot of light come into the sensor. Doesn't have Image Stabilization, so you will need a tripod or Rig to get a stable image.
