Great for Portraits, Street and Still Life Photography

The Canon 50mm f/1.8 STM lens is a high quality portrait, street and still life lens. Popular with beginner and enthusiast shooters, the lens delivers an artistic edge to portraits and everyday objects thanks to its large f/1.8 aperture and its shallow depth of field results.

Bright f/1.8 Maximum Aperture

The fast f/1.8 maximum aperture is constructed from seven rounded diaphragm blades to create smooth, visually pleasing background blur. Delivering a 35mm equivalent 80mm focal range when used in conjunction with APS-C sized sensors further improves its shallow depth of field performance.

Excellent Low-Light Capability

In low-light scenarios the large aperture provides additional exposure flexibility, allowing you to utilise faster shutter speeds without compromising image sharpness.

Accurate, Consistent STM Autofocusing

Fast, smooth focusing performance is delivered via the Stepping Motor Technology (STM) autofocus system. The lens is great at freezing fast action plus, with Movie Servo AF support on selected EOS DSLRs, can deliver silky smooth focusing while shooting video.

Super Spectra Anti-Reflective Coating

Producing sharp, detail rich results with excellent colour reproduction, the lens utilises a Super Spectra anti-reflective coating to help control flare and ghosting while improving contrast and overall image clarity.

Compact, Lightweight Design

With a compact and lightweight design it weighs only 0.160 kg, making it streamlined enough to slip into virtually any camera bag. Its convenient size ensures it will always be on hand, while the discreet size and clean design make it ideal for fly-on-the-wall style shooting and street photography.

Rugged Metal Lens Mount

With its updated metal lens mount and re-located focusing ring for improved ergonomics the versatility and value of the 'nifty fifty' Canon 50 mm f/1.8 STM lens will be a part of your photography kit for years to come.
