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: Value for money; Brightness; Lightness; Portability.

Cons: For the membership band, none.

Opinion: Lent myself for a couple of days, mounted it on a 5D II, and took a walk around central Rome. In addition to having fun on the street, because it's so light that it doesn't even seem mounted on the car, I also took home some enough shots, one is in my gallery, the one with the elderly man using the phone. It doesn't have the quality of the other high-end Canon 50mm, but it's about fifty more than dignified that's worth more than it costs. Good Canon.

Pros: The price, lightness, sharpness from f/2.8 onwards.

Cons: At this price?! maybe it attracts dust I would say.

Opinion: Well I use it with the canon adapter on the m50 and so aps-c, autofocus very fast and precise and from f/2.8 on is very sharp, I'm not a fan of portraits with an eye on fire and one no or extreme bokeh, my favorite diaphragm is f/3.2 and gave me respectable photos. No one forbids using it from f/1.8 to f/2.5 but it's not as sharp as you'd expect, I took it at the modest 88th figure used as new and with shipping included, never made a better deal!!!! I did the paraone between the 50 stm f/1.8 and the 50 usm f/1.4 , well the photos are at f/1.4 and f/1.8 in the usm worse than the stm to TA, then instead the usm from f/2.8 onwards is better at the edges but in the center are IDENTICI. Certainly among the 2 I recommend the 50 stm without a shadow of a doubt, so much the usm to f/1.4 is unusable. In the cons I did not put the material that may seem cheap in comparison to a usm definitely, because x 88th what I care about is only the end result.

Pros: Price,weight,sharpness

Cons: Paralight not included

Opinion: If you start by comparing it to 50 1.2 logically it doesn't make sense. In my opinion one of the goals with the best value for money. Light and short, light not included but that price can stand. Bought only for sphid and I must say that not having Expectations surprised me very much. Very good blur and af in the norm. So light you do not feel the lack of stabilizer snaps at 1/125 without problems. At f2.8 in my opinion it give the best.

Pros: Price, sharpness, color yield

Cons: Af

Opinion: Let's start with the only flaw I've encountered: the STM engine doesn't go like other STM lenses. I also own the 55-250mm STM that goes great: much more precise and especially silent! However, leaving out the uncertainty of the AF, I can only find positive aspects: the sharpness is spectacular already at f/1.8, but it is at f/2.2 that it becomes a real blade even in the edges of the image; The chromatic rendering is fantastic and the bokeh very pleasant. It weighs very little and is very small, almost takes no space in the backpack. All in all, considering that there are definitely superior quality lenses (But they cost at least 5 times as much), my rating is 8/10.
