    Nifty Fifty is a well deserved title

    This lens is compact, lightweight, and a very versatile tool to help you in this craft that we all love and share! The bokeh is exceptional and I just love the creamy and that blurred background looks and how the aperture just helps create those bubble shapes for the lights. The amount of flexibility I have for low-light photography also doubled with my current lens arsenal and just having fun experimenting and creating professional shots with it! Also, because of the 1.8 aperture, the subject and background feels more immersive in the story that you are trying to create so it is definitely a great lens to buy and especially at this price point. Little tips from me is that you should prepare to try and get closer or farther from your subject since this is a fixed lens (if you haven’t tried any lens similar to this) and you can’t zoom in our out but it challenges you to try and see more different angles and find perspectives in places you haven’t explored before, tedious, but definitely worth every second. Beginners and professionals alike should have and, dare I say, NEED this in their camera gear.

    The LEAST EXPENSIVE lens for the RF system, so far

    This Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 is the lightest and LEAST EXPENSIVE lens for the RF system (there, I didn't say 'cheapest'). And at this price why would you NOT have one in your bag? It's affordable, so light, and hardly takes up any space at all. The lens hoods weren't available until about 2 months afterward and I finally got my lens hood so I can compare this lens to my EF 50mm f/1.4, not the f/1.8 nifty-fifty, but the step between that and the 50mm f/1.2L. The CONTROL RING on this lens is DE-CLICKED because it can be used as either a control ring like all other RF lenses, or by flipping the switch on the lens it can become a FOCUS ring. I wasn't sure how much I would like that but I actually don't mind at all. I read online that Canon will DE-CLICK any RF lens if you send it to them (for a modest fee). It's slightly lighter and smaller than my EF 50mm f/1.4, but once you put on the EF-RF lens adapter the differences are even greater, and the lens hood on this version is smaller than the lens hood of the EF 50mm f/1.4. I will eventually get the RF 50mm f/1.2L but in the meanwhile I'm really enjoying this budget lens. It does what it's supposed to do and covers the 50mm focal range while I save up for other RF lenses. My only wish is that all of these budget RF lenses used the same FILTER THREAD SIZE. Here's what I'm dealing with now: 52mm filter - RF 35mm f/1.8 IS 43mm filter - RF 50mm f/1.8 67mm filter - RF 85mm f/2 IS Here's what I had with my EF lenses: 58mm filter - EF 28mm f/1.8 58mm filter - EF 50mm f/1.4 58mm filter - EF 85mm f/1.8

    Another great Nifty Fifty!

    Canon keeps putting out these great inexpensive "nifty fifty" lens and they are hard to beat. The RF version is no different. I've owned (and currently still do) about all of these 1.8 50mm and they simply just get the job done. Image quality is great. Build quality on the RF is better than the EF but still not "L" quality in regards to anything. But the RF 1.2 is EXPENSIVE!
