Pros: Interesting bokeh at F1.8, kind of sharp enough in the middle, which is fine for portraits, but rather soft overall wide open. Quite usable though. Not much CA. Sharp from F2.5, excellent from F4. STM - silent and faster AF than in the older EF 50F1.8 II lens. Now with 7-blade aperture and closer focusing distance. Small. Weights almost nothing. CHEAP!

Cons: Odd 49mm filter thread, down from 52mm on the older one. STM is focus by wire, which means that when the battery dies, you cannot "park" the lens front element back inside and it will be sticking out. Flares badly, but some (?many) people like it very much.

Opinion: This one is simply the best value lens, period. A must-have Canon prime with good old (traditional) Double-Gauss optics in a new plastic barrel. Well, why fix something that isn't broken ... Right? :). Unless you want to compromise it somehow. Some say that this new STM version has worse vignetting than the older lens. I didn't check it myself, because I don't find it to be a problem really. Still, it might be worth mentioning. If I had to choose between 35L on APS-C and this 50 STM on FF, I would take the 50+FF.

Pros: Price, sharpness

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: It is the lens with which we usually start, given the price. Yet the sharpness, already at maximum aperture, is splendid. Obviously suitable for portraits, but beyond closed spaces in which obviously the focal length (which in APS-C reaches 75-80 mm depending on the brands) struggles, you can do anything. For me, especially considering the price, it deserves 10.

Pros: Price, sharpness, bokeh, compact, lightweight, fast and quiet AF, filter diameter 49mm

Cons: for what it costs I would say nothing special if not a very slight chromatic aberration easily solvable in post and lack of an infinite focus indicator

Opinion: Purchased the lens in the canon store at a discount of 107 euros which in my opinion was a super deal, nothing can be said for what it costs ... FAST AF (not as much as USM), precise and silent, at f1.8 personally I find it very lightly soft (nothing so catastrophic) but at 2.0 onwards it is super sharp as an L series, on APS-C it becomes an interesting 80mm. Another positive thing and the 49mm diameter saves you a lot of money in buying filters, in addition, it is so compact and light that you carry it around without problems. "negative" things, it does not have a positioning indicator in the infinite focus since the bezel turns without a block, so it is something that I think to solve with an indicator applied with a beautiful water melt decal customized by me, then there is the price of the hood ... I do not understand how it costs a piece of plastic 35/40 euros ... we are talking about 1/3 of the price of its goal, in short, there is to have patience in finding it at an affordable price. Rating 10, happy with the purchase.

Pros: Lightweight, Sharp already at f/1.8, Economical

Cons: The plastic construction exposes it a lot to scratches

Opinion: Purchased in April, I started squeezing it only from May. Initially I was worried about the image quality for how much I paid for it but the images immediately denied me. Sharp already at f/1.8 it becomes sharp as a razor from f/2.2 to rise. Mounted on 7DII it offers an angle of view equal to an 80mm which makes it in my opinion, a best buy for portraitists. Its lightness is a huge point in its favor, I almost forgot to have it with me in the bag: unlike heavier lenses, you can dare with shutter speeds even higher than 1/50 without risking running into the move (clearly on static subjects). The autofocus is STM type and is very fast and accurate, it does not miss a shot. The only drawback in my opinion is the construction a little plastic that could make it easy to scratch (even if my specimen is still immaculate). If you do not want to spend so much and have a lens of this quality focal length, this is the right choice. Rating 9
