An affordable high-quality lens that’s great for portraits, movies and low-light scenes

The third-generation of the internationally best-selling EF50mm f/1.8 series standard lens, the EF50mm f/1.8 STM, which has a body that includes a metallic mount, makes use of a stepping motor (STM) that ensures silent, speedy autofocus drive operation. The lens construction, consisting of 6 elements in 5 groups and a 7-blade circular aperture, has optimized lens coatings that suppress the occurrence of flare and ghosting, resulting in high image quality. With its lightweight, compact design that belies a surprisingly large diameter, the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM lens  is convenient and easy to use for any scene and lets you easily produce more artistic and impactful photography thanks to a wide f/1.8 aperture that produces sharp focus on your subject and a beautiful blurred background.

Overview

Compact and lightweight-an outstanding walk-around lens-Canon’s EF 50mm f/1.8 STM is a great entry into the world of EOS prime lenses. With an 80mm effective focal-length on APS-C cameras, 50mm on full-frame cameras, it’s an excellent prime lens for portraits, action, even nighttime photography. Its bright maximum aperture of f/1.8 helps it not only to excel in low light, but also to capture gorgeous, sharp images and movies with beautiful background blur thanks to its circular 7-blade design. An updated lens arrangement with new lens coatings helps render images with excellent color balance, plus minimized ghosting and flare. Performance is brilliant, with a stepping motor (gear-type STM) to deliver near silent, continuous Movie Servo AF for movies plus speedy, smooth AF for stills. A redesigned exterior with improved focus ring placement makes manual focus adjustments a breeze. Canon’s most compact 50mm lens, the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM has a rugged metal mount, plus an improved minimum focusing distance of 1.15 ft. (0.35m) and a maximum magnification of 0.21x. Offering sharp performance for the best in movies and stills, it’s a fixed focal length gem-the perfect lens for photographers and moviemakers to expand the creative possibilities with their EOS cameras.

A classic re-born

The EF 50mm f/1.8 STM replaces the popular EF 50mm f/1.8 II lens which was affectionately known for giving outstanding picture quality at an affordable price. This latest version gives the same stunning photo quality but with a fast, near-silent focus motor and a more robust build that belies its price.

Artistic and impactful photography

The wide f/1.8 aperture of the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM gives you the ability to bring your subject into sharp focus and blur the background. Photographers refer to this as a ‘narrow depth of field’ and makes your subject stand out which is great for portraits, as people become the clear focus of your shot.

Let more light in

The wide f/1.8 aperture lets in more than 8x the amount of light compared to the standard zoom lens that is provided with your EOS*. This results in sharper images with less motion blur and reduced need to use flash in dimly lit conditions so you can easily capture the atmosphere of a low light environment.

For portraits and everyday use

The 50mm focal length allows you to fill the frame with your subject from a comfortable distance making it a great lens for portraits. A similar perspective to the human eye and its compact size make the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM a great everyday lens to always carry with your EOS camera.

Sharp focus for photos and videos

The near-silent STM (Stepping Motor) technology focuses extremely quickly when shooting photos, so you can react suddenly to capture fleeting moments. Creating high quality movies is easier with STM as it delivers steady and quiet continuous focusing, so your movies are smooth, and soundtracks only capture the surrounding sounds and not the noise of a focusing motor.

Features

Stepping Motor

 

Silent and smooth AF

The STM (Stepping Motor) is an AF drive motor that is able to control the rotational operation of the motor using the fluctuation of pulse signals. Each electrical pulse signal can rotate the stepping motor by one step, and start-stop response is superb. The simple mechanical structure makes it easy to adopt a compact lens design. Also, the STM helps to reduce operating sound, and is thus ideal for video shooting. Canon developed two different types of STM according to the lens characteristics. The “STM + lead screw” unit adopts a lead-screw-type drive that is capable of generating a large torque, and enables silent and smooth AF drive on zoom lenses. The “STM + gear” unit allows for compact lens designs, and is optimised as a drive motor for compact lenses such as the pancake lens.

Full-time Manual Focusing

Enables MF immediately after AF

Many of Canon’s EF lenses are equipped with “full-time manual focusing”, which allows manual focus right after auto focus is complete, just by turning the focusing ring and without the need to switch to MF mode. All Ring USM and STM lenses support full-time manual focusing.

Circular Aperture Diaphragm

Expresses point light sources in beautiful round bokeh

The aperture is made up of several blades, the number of which determines the shape of the bokeh effect, such as in the case of illumination, light seeping through the leaves of a tree, and light reflection from the water surface. Light normally appears round when seen through our eyes, thus expressing light in a circular shape adds a more natural and soft touch to the resulting image. Almost all EF lenses employ a circular aperture diaphragm.

Smooth background blur

A virtually circular aperture diaphragm gives out of focus regions a softer, more uniform feel. Sharp foreground objects stand out against a smooth blurred background.

Sharp focus for photos and videos

The near-silent STM (Stepping Motor) technology focuses extremely quickly when shooting photos, so you can react suddenly to capture fleeting moments. Creating high quality movies is easier with STM as it delivers steady and quiet continuous focusing, so your movies are smooth, and soundtracks only capture the surrounding sounds and not the noise of a focusing motor.
