Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II

Sorry, we have no items in stock.


This is the lightest EF lens of all at a mere 130g, very compact and providing a high-performance for a standard lens. Its Gaussian optics provide sharp delineation from near to far focusing distances. The colour balance is excellent for a standard lens.

Get the lens that blurs backgrounds while keeping your subject pin-sharp, letting you be selective with what’s in focus. A lens that lets you shoot atmospheric pictures, even when the light starts to fade.

To really make your subject stand out, try isolating it against a blurred background. A lens like the EF 50mm f/1.8 II can help you do this. It’s a tiny lens that you can stick in your bag and take anywhere. Blurring the background in a picture is good approach when shooting portraits of family and friends. It places most of the attention on the most important thing in the frame – the person whose picture you are taking!
