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: Quality/price ratio, autofocus accuracy, sharpness

Cons: Nothing

Opinion: It was one of the first lenses I bought to match my 500D. From the beginning (compared to the lens kit 18-55 to which I was used) I noticed a clear difference in the quality of the images (despite the 500D of its not being a professional camera). I really like the quietness of the autofocus, the precision and the pleasant bokeh. Of course maybe at f/1.8 is a little soft (at least the sides), but already a f/2 gives excellent images. When I took my first FF (a Canon 5D classic, used) I almost always used it on this full frame, they seemed made for each other. It should be remembered that it is not tropicalized, nor can it reach openings of f/1.4 or even f/1.2, but for this it is necessary to spend ten times as much. In summary, it's a great lens to start making portraits (on APS-C) or as a classic nifty-fifty on full frame. If you still have doubts, buy it, you will not regret it.

Pros: Bokeh, price, size, minimum focus distance

Cons: STM engine

Opinion: Very cute lens, I would say almost mandatory to buy when you want to test the first fixed focal lens. Very small, well built and low priced. Returns very nice photos thanks also to the f1.8. and the minimum focus distance that, unlike the other 50mm you can compare, is shorter. This allows you to take photos of small objects or details. I would only use it more often if it was more reliable. The STM engine of my model after a few months of use began to not focus properly and then noticed a certain back focus.

Pros: Lightness, build quality

Cons: AF and sharpness not up to other fixed STM targets.

Opinion: Taken from alternating with the 24mm STM on APS C Canon 200d, I decided to replace it after a while in favor of the 40mm STM lens. I preferred the latter in the end because it was sharper and faster in focus, with a good blur even for portraits. Despite the greater aperture of diaphragm 1.8 of the 50 STM, compared to 2.8 of 24 and 40, even in low light conditions i was not entirely satisfied. Good lens suitable for portraits but less for family scenes or among friends with more people.

Pros: Metal Bayonet, image quality

Cons: Soft to TA, autofocus does not live up to the other STM

Opinion: Used both on APS-C and on FF, it returns good images and has a nice fuzzy. Being a "cheap" lens do not use it at full aperture, unless you make a portrait centered and not be maniacs of sharpness, you will be disappointed. At F2 it already starts to give its best and pulls out a pretty good personality for a €100 lens. Good construction and metal bayonet. Not good autofocus. I do not understand how among the various STM there is a performance gap so obvious: the 18-55 is accurate, silent and instantaneous, the 24 is normal, the 50 is slow, there is little to do. Then as all fixed Canon has a distance of MAF slightly too long, you have to be careful in the portraits to not get too close. For the rest it is worth the money spent.
