The Canon EF 50mm f1.8 STM lens is the successor to the incredibly popular 50mm f1.8 II. Extremely compact and lightweight (160g), the lens features an improved optical design and stepping motor (STM) technology. Its wide f/1.8 maximum aperture and standard 50mm focal length makes it ideal for a wide variety of photographic genres, including travel, portraiture, and everyday creative snapshots.

Explore creative portraiture and low-light photography

It's easy to capture superb portraits or bold, artistic photos and movies with the new lens - the wide f/1.8 maximum aperture provides precise control over depth of field. It gives you the creative freedom to pinpoint focus on your subject and let the rest of the frame blend into a smooth blur - instantly allowing you to draw the viewer's attention to a specific area. Additionally, the aperture lets more light into the lens, so you can comfortably shoot in darker conditions.

As a prime lens, the fixed 50mm focal length provides high quality results, with enhanced visible sharpness and contrast. When paired with an APS-C EOS DSLR, the lens is ideal for portraiture, helping you capture the perfect head and shoulder composition. It's also a useful every day 'standard' lens for full frame DSLRs and is great at shooting a diverse range of subjects with a natural viewpoint and perspective.

The lens also provides a minimum focusing distance of just 0.35m, allowing you to get even closer to subjects and achieve a greater level of magnification, while the 7-blade aperture delivers beautiful blur and out of focus highlights. Providing enhanced image quality when compared to its predecessor, the lens features Canon's Super Spectra Coating, which minimises internal reflections, as well as ghosting and flare.

The perfect addition to any kit bag

The lens has a compact and lightweight design, weighing a mere 160g, and easily slips into your bag adding very little to the overall weight of your kit. The lens's new external design compliments both Canon's consumer and mid-range EOS DSLRs, while the new metal mount provides a more robust connection to camera bodies. Additionally, the lens's manual focusing ring gives you added freedom to control the precise area in focus in your photos and movies.

STM (Stepping Motor)

Canon's new line of STM lenses are specifically designed for shooting video with the camera's Movie Servo AF mode. The first STM lens was released along with the Canon EOS 650D and has been designed to work with the 650D's AF so that they're fast, accurate and silent. The result is a movie that sounds professional without the sound of the noisy AF motor in the background.
