The Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM is the company's least expensive lens. It's an excellent value, even if it does have some flaws.
Sharp at f/1.8. Lightweight. Silent, smooth video focus. Very affordable.
Modest barrel distortion. Slower focus. Can flare. Some fall-off at wide aperture. Omits stabilization. Narrower field of view on APS-C cameras. Hood not included.
The EF 50mm f/1.8 II has long been due a replacement and the arrival of the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM has been met with great interest from the Canon faithful. The addition of the STM motor delivers a much quieter performance, and although it’s not entirely silent in operation, unless you’re recording video...
It is easy to love a lens with perfect optical quality, best-available AF and first-class build quality. Start dropping any of those attributes and size, weight and price concessions are expected with the amount of the price concession being the all-important factor for many.
This lens is an update to the popular and inexpensive standard 50mm f/1.8 EF lens , replacing the standard focusing motor with Canon's new stepping motor technology, which promises smoother, quieter autofocus performance, which is especially suited to recording video.
It's small, lightweight, has a decent build quality and stopped down a little the image quality is very good. It has a metal lens mount. Sharpness, contrast and colors are excellent from f/2.8. The lens focusses quickly and accurately, but it's not silent.
This lens is situated as the next Nifty Fifty in Canon’s line-up, offering the popular 50mm focal length at an affordable $125 price point. Of course, on APS-C cameras like the Canon EOS Rebel series will provide a field of view equivalent to an 80mm lens on a full frame camera.
I am basically a street photographer and my preferred focal length is 50mm. About 5 years ago I sold off all my Canon gear and went Leica. A 50mm Summicron was my lens of choice. Then about six months ago I decided to come back to Canon.
This is a must have lens to have in your gear bag. It's a great lens to throw on your body (either crop or not) and get right out there and do some incredible portrait and street photography. You will not be disappointed.
Excellent portrait lens for both Full Frame and Crop Sensor bodies. Equates to approx. 85mm focal length on Canon 1.6 crop sensor cameras. New STM (Stepping motor) for silent and fast (although not blazing fast) focusing Very sharp lens. Do not let the price fool you.
Not really a con, but Smaller filter size (smaller than the standard f1.8 50mm Canon without STM. I recommend bying a step up or step down ring for filters anyways to keep your filter arsenal ready for most any lens in your gear bag.
Lens performs great. This lens should be the kit lens for all Canon Rebel cameras. The low light ability of f1.8 cannot be over stressed. The bokeh (background blur) is very nice, pleasant and predictable. A perfect portrait lens at 50mm without distortion or bowing of the image.

Everyone talks about how good this lens is. I find it pretty standard. Still using my zoom lens for portraits that matter. Was this review helpful?
Small, built well worth the money.
Autofocus is a bit slow
This lens has got great picture quality and at this price, it is a steal
I own the 50mm F1.8 STM and the EF 85 F1.8 and, in my humble opinion, the former outperforms the latter, at least my portraits are more crispy with the 50mm than with the 85mm. In fact, with this latter, some pictures are a little blurred or out of focus despite I shoot at a high speed.
Great Product! I bought this so I could get more into portrait photography and I'm glad I did. I have a Canon Rebel Ti 5. It makes the background beautifully blurred, has a fairly fast auto-focus, and produces crisp, clean pictures.
The build quality is much better than the nifty fifty. It has a metal mount which it feels nice and secure on the body. If you already own a 50 1.8 II no need to upgrade until it breaks. If you don't own a 50 1.8, buy it . You won't regret the investment.
