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: At this price, as a quality relationship is not afraid of comparisons, they have improved what was missing in the previous version, but silent, fast, precise, bokeh much more pleasant without pretending to have one macro lens, light but with a sense of solidity appropriate to its use and price, metal graft compared to the plastic one before and is not little, bright and contrasting colors, gorgeous Canon style, autofocus and maf with effigy, quick and silent stm that so far (I have not made a large number of shots) , has never given me any problem, with good light nor with poor light, not even in doors, defends itself at full opening using fast safety times freehand, at ease of course you manage even better even if you have to find tune for photos to great openings, perhaps making repeated diaphragms with steps of 1/4 stop at a time to evaluate the yields to each parameter and know better the "character", I do not evaluate it in portraiture, it is not my gender, but for the tests that I did anyway it is not bad even at gra openings, of course, is looser in this sense to easel. Multipurpose lens, cheap with considerable potential for those who know how to draw that gives satisfaction in various areas, but I find it fantastic, for my genres, especially in the yield in close-up pushed, thanks also to the reduced allowed distance of maf, where it can ' express images with detail, although cropped a little even to rather closed diaphragms (with good light of course), not far from the yield of a macro lens, definition/detail excellent already ' f2, 2.2 but sharpens more and more from F2.5 up (at F4 is a blade). What to say further, lens to keep "always" even if you prefer 50mm with larger openings for portrait use or for blurring with more specialized maf selective m far more expensive, this defends itself in any case always very well in every area, even in its " small." Personal rating: 9.5

Cons: No lens is perfect, but for what it offers and for those who know how to photograph and understand its potential, it can amaze from various points of view and use and I find it difficult to find defects of particular relevance (some complain of problems from maf and/or f/b focus , but it can be done by the unfortunate model or perhaps by a very intense use), my specimen so far is perfect but as I have already expressed, I have not made many shots.

Opinion: As for my experience with this goal, which I have also compared in the "practical" use with the previous version "II", good but inferior on some aspects (maf less punctual and noisier, plastic bayonet, bokeh of lower quality with 6 slats...) to this current version where it is really difficult to honestly expect more at this price for what it can offer to those who know how to use it properly (with the Canon 5D Mark III works in symbiosis spontaneously and.excellent (but also on aps-c). I am very satisfied with it and I will hardly separate it, even if I never have to take in the future one with a similar but brighter focal, which I could go to in case only for a model even with the same millimeter and even possibly to the same focus and brightness that for me is enough and advances), only for a stabilized model and at a reasonable price. In the gallery I have some examples of practical use, especially in close-up of this lens (like beautiful other photos present in the forum made by other amateurs with this lens) that express in the substantial use and not in words or theory what can be pulled from this little gem. To me surprises at the level of close-up, the rendering of definition/details colors really level and a pleasant bokeh (the latter depends very obviously also on the chosen pdr, the subject and framing of the frame, the context and the ambient light cultured) this is not necessarily to diaphragms more open but also to different diaphragms, with preference for those on average closed to be evaluated time after time of course, the latter area in which I prefer to compose more my photographic genres (although in the last months for various reasons photographer very little), even if not exclusively), then on blurred and bokeh, in post it is always possible to attenuate or optimize the natural yield that the lens can offer, as well as any other aspect of the resulting photo that in the camera RAW, each amateur/photographer adapts to his own personal taste. Slow and I conclude, for me essential to always have with you in the photographic hardware kit, even just as a lens of "emergency" or to be tested/used when "inspired" that can take you away from the plagues in emergency cases in multiple situations, unless you want to test the possibilities far from modest, when used in certain areas quietly also as the main "normal" lens...

Pros: lightness, sharpness, good blur... unsurpassed price

Cons: materials, af...

Opinion: Sure, it has its limits and shows them if put to the test for intensive and complex uses, but it's really a boon. A lens that can return excellent if not even excellent images at an unimaginable price... especially if Canon. The autofocus (at least in mine) lacks precision, but his work (at this price) does it well. Very recommended to those who start and still to keep in the bag. A "plastic" that can surprise.

Pros: Light, compact, cheap, crisp, AC light, absent distortion, good image even in backlight, focal and blurry opening, price value

Cons: Lack of stabilizer, senseless 49mm diameter, too soft at TA, autofocus noisy, slow and often inaccurate and unusable with little light, and that after a few months begins to give problems of back and front focus, unreliable lens and unsuitable to use a little more Dignified

Opinion: This fifty can not miss in the optical park of a beginner or an amateur, it has excellent value for money because despite having various limitations it is worth all its 130 euros. It is crisp, almost free of AC and distortion, returns a blur good thanks to the f1.8, although to have less soft images it is better to use it from f2 onwards, and is very light and compact. But damn... I would have preferred to pay 30 euros more but have at least reliable focus... wrong several shots even in the f more closed, and I am forced to use the live view of my 80D that does not miss a shot. The focus is noisy, slow, inaccurate and unreliable for portrait shoots and videos. The lack of the stabilizer is not a great flaw, but it could come in very handy... I am inclined to switch to 35mm f2 IS USM and 85mm f1.4 USM L.

Pros: good resolution. Economic. tolerates the backlight well. pleasant bokeh.

Cons: I'd like to find other similar optics at similar prices.

Opinion: I bought this optics because I read the MTF tests and I didn't think they could be true. I have to say I was wrong. it looks like I'm doing a review at Canon but it's not. I loved it. it's versatile and performing. sharp enough. little perspective distortion. for about 100 euros you could not have hoped for better. doesn't suffer from the backlight. honestly, if I could find other optics of this class that are equally performing but of different optical lengths I would buy them right away.
