Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 STM Review (excellent value for money, ePhotozine)

RF 50mm F/1.8 STM Vs EF 50mm

The classic 50mm lens, the Nifty-Fifty, got a new incarnation with the inexpensive Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 STM for the EOS R system. Inexpensive but quite the performer.

At a glance:

  • RF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/1.8 to f/22
  • One Aspherical Element
  • Super Spectra Coating
  • STM Stepping AF Motor
  • Customizable Control Ring
  • Rounded 7-Blade Diaphragm

ePhotozine reviewed the Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 STM, and they seem to be rather fond of the lens. They praise many thing on this lens, as sharpness, no distortion, fast and precise focusing, and more. From their conclusion:

The standard 50mm lens, long neglected, has more recently seen a resurgence in popularity. It is easy to see why – relatively low cost, fast, bright maximum apertures, fast focusing, the lens that can be taken anywhere no matter how low the lighting and the one that delivers the goods.

Although, ideally, it would have been good to have weather resistance and the lens hood included as standard, let’s not be churlish as the lens remains excellent value for money and performs very well overall. To many zoom orientated photographers the fast 50mm can be something of a revelation.

Highly Recommended.

It’s just a shame Canon asks $40 for the lens hood, a piece of plastics they could well deliver with the lens. More Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 STM review stuff are listed here. This lens is a no brainer for every EOS R owner.

Today’s Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L review comes from Julia Trotti. She says:

[…] today I have a chilled out portrait photography session at the beach with the Canon EOS R5 and the RF 50mm f1.2. If you want to watch my Canon EOS R5 review you can see it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=12OgX… In this video I share some SOOC, unedited sample photos from the R5 + my final edited photos. I also thought I’d share with you some extra SOOC photos that I didn’t end up editing at all, just to show you what kinds of photos don’t end up making the final cut. Let me know which ones are you favs in the comments and if you want to see any other Canon gear on my channel :D Thanks for watching!
