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: compact, lightweight

Cons: not very sharp a ta

Opinion: Perhaps a bit like everyone, it is one of the first lenses purchased, for me far superior to its cousin 1.4, the only defect found is the lack of sharpness at full aperture, in fact it makes it very good from 2.2 to go up on canon 5dmarkiii compact and very light, you do not feel like keeping it behind, I think it should not be missing in any backpack , just in case, very useful for street and portraits

Pros: light, small, crisp, cheap

Cons: nobody

Opinion: For the price that this lens has it is difficult to find a con against it, I have possessed it since its release to replace the older non-STM version. The focus is excellent, not at the level of the USMs (the real ones, however, not the usm of 50 1.4), but still not as noisy and inaccurate as that of a traditional moped. Certainly very sharp, even at full opening, it is a lens that is cheap, but it knows how to give so much, it is so compact that it would be a shame to leave it at home!

Pros: light, small, more than sufficient performance even at full opening, economical and also well built, AF very very good and quiet

Cons: just the focus by wire

Opinion: For this price, with these characteristics and for what it must do, it is the fifty reference. Sharpness is more than enough even at full opening in the middle zone, but it also defends at the edges in reality if you do not expect a performance from Zeiss or Leitz. If it closes, as others have written it becomes a beast of definition on any machine body. The AF is quite quiet (not like the 24-105 STM, to be honest, but enough) and precise. The only flaw for me is the focus by wire that does not allow full time manual focus (that is: if you want to move the focus, when you are with the lens switch on AF you can not do it by hand). It has everything you need at a cost, frankly, really derisory. Ah, maybe another flaw has it, yes: I hadn't bought it until now! :D

Pros: usable to t.a., very sharp from f/2.8, price, colors

Cons: af slow

Opinion: on apsc, excellent portrait lens. the blurry will not be the best but it costs a whistle, closed 1 stop becomes a blade, the colors are beautiful, cluttered little, weighs little and also has the metal bayonet. on mirrorless (M5) the af is not wrong but it is certainly not lightning. obligatory purchase. sold once, I regretted it quickly, I just bought it back.
