Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Image Gallery

If you are looking for a gateway prime to try out what a large aperture fixed lens can do on your camera or are just looking for an inexpensive yet competent 50mm price, then you need to take a long look at the new Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM.  It is an improvement in every way over its predecessor (the “Plastic Fantastic”).  It’s actually a very nice little prime lens, and I will be sharing videos about it and photos from it here.  You can the full review here:

Here is a video that shares a first look at the lens and some early thoughts about its focus and build:

Finally, here is the full video review of the lens:

Here are some photos of the lens itself:
