    The Nifty Fifty

    This lens, with its massive f/1.8 aperture, is quite possibly one of the best things for shooting in low light or indoors without blurring. Of course with big apertures the other thing that comes is depth-of-field, and oh boy does this ever have it. Cranked wide open, it very nicely separates the background from the subject with puffy, well-defined bokeh. For focus, it uses the Canon STM (stepper motor) drive, which is quite fast and accurate. It is a prime lens, meaning it is fixed and does not zoom. 50mm is a good focal length for portraits though, and this lens can focus on something as close as a foot away from the camera so you can get some good closeups. While the focus motor is relatively quiet, it makes a very distinct sound, which others have noted is distracting in video. It is much, much quieter than the kit lens that comes with entry-level Canon cameras though, which is the camera most likely owned by the person wanting to use this lens for video. I don't recommend this lens for video at all, as still photography is where it shines. On autofocus, it snaps right in. Press the shutter and you're practically already taking the picture, only a split second of autofocus lag. Manual focus is a little strange at first, as the ring just tells the focus motor where to turn to, but it is quick to get used to and now I really like it. The focus steps are very small so I can get an extremely sharp lock on most anything. Overall I recommend this to any budding photographer as a good first "second lens" to purchase for their brand new Canon Rebel camera. The price is right and it does great things.

    Nice first lens

    I'm new to these lenses and dslr camera. This type of lens obviously doesn't have a zoom. It's fixed at 50mm just like it says it it is. It's great for my stop motion projects with small figures like Legos. There's definitely more light coming in using this lens compared to the zoom zoom lens that came with my camera. Much sharper too.

    Fast, light, clear but noisy for video.

    It is a light, clear, bright, fast and accurate focusing lens, even in dark shots on my DSLRs (EOS5D Mark II) But for video users without an external microphone it is nosy. I use it for both, studio shots and outdoors, Photo and video. Manual focus ring could be better to grab with one finger, (the outher lens ring is on the same level as the focusing ring so it doesn't allow your finger to get a good grip with it) the MF-AF button is very slippery too it does not move easily with one finger. This button and the MF ring are flush with the surface of the lens. Maybe some people prefer them this way to avoid moving them by mistake, but for me they are there to be used! Bear in mind the manual focus does not work with the camera off. I shoot with my eyes on the wiewfinder all the time, not with live view or looking at the screen. I am a Professional Photographer with more than 25 years of experience. I have a Nikon equivalent and it is easier to use, but it is 20 years old, So It is only works completely manual on my Canons with an adapter. Want more tech info and comparisons?
