An image of a possible Canon 50mm f/1.8 IS STM lens leaked on the web. Fake or real?
Hard to say so far. The lens in the image appears to have a good build quality, a large focusing ring, has IS and STM, looks authentic. It’s also questionable if this lens will replace the 50mm f/1.8 II (the Nifty-Fifty), or the EF 50mm f/1.4 USM.
If the image is real, then the lens appears to be placed higher in Canon’s line-up than the Nifty-Fifty. Btw, os there a reason to replace the Nifty-Fifty?
What do you think? For a comparison, see below the 50mm f/1.8 II and 50mm f/1.4.[via Photo Rumors]
