The Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens is a prime and compact lens. The Canon 50mm lens features a bright f/1.8 maximum aperture which benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and also affords increased control over depth of field for isolating subject matter. The Super Spectra coating has also been applied, which helps to minimize lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity in bright lighting conditions. The STM stepping AF motor is used to realize quick and near-silent autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override.
- The lens bright f/1.8 maximum aperture enables control over depth of field for selective focus applications and also benefits working in low-light situations.
- The lens has a Super Spectra coating which has been applied to individual elements to minimize ghosting and flare for greater contrast and color neutrality when working in strong lighting conditions.
- The STM stepping AF motor realizes smooth and near-silent autofocus that is complemented by advanced AF algorithms and a high-speed CPU for fast AF performance. Moreover, the full-time manual focus override is also available.
- The lens seven-blade rounded diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
