Top Positive Reviews

  • Good points- portrait mode / blur effect – awesome night photoshoot – amazing build quality – superb lens – outstanding size – very small weight – acceptable drawbacks- zoom – no ( not available ) autofocus – little difficult overall if you are a photographer or photography lover then just go for it don’t think so much.
  • I don’t know about prime lens and all just give it a try but believe me guys portrait photos came out like unbelievably superb don’t know about durability will take some time but you can hear the motor sound clearly that’s the only problem for me other then that lens is awesome for the price i got 6800
  • After continuous use of 10 days my honest opinion is- 1. autofocus is pretty good although it depends upon your camera,i have used canon 200d mak 2 and in my usage it’s pretty awesome.
  • Canon ef50mm f/1.8 stm lens for canon dslr cameras it’s nice and awesome lens for portrait photography and some beautiful bokeh effect at f/1.8 its really awesome just one thing everyone to consider it’s not zoomed in and zoomed out.
  • You will find cheaper alternatives but this one works like magic and is definitely strong enough to last years and years.
  • (especially if you plan on recording a video) what i love: -it’s easy to install and comes with 2 lens caps (rear and front) -the bokeh is awesome -nearly half the size of the standard lens, light and portable.
  • Best decision i have made is to buy this lense.. best potraits captured.. it came with warranty..
  • Its best for low light indoors as well as great in outdoor at any condition.
  • Also, it is worth noting that on aps-c bodies, the angle of view will be equal to that of an 80mm lens, making it just perfect for beautifully controlled portraits and studio work.
  • This is awesome awesome lens.
  • Camera: 1500d lens: ef50mm f/1.8 usage: portrait expectation: very good bokeh, superb sharpness.
  • The optics are said to be very similar, but with the new lens there is a clear improvement in centre sharpness at f/1.8.
  • Value for money great bokeh & performs well good autofocus & great low light performance but for aps-c camera like 1300d, 1500d & 80d crop is too much which makes lens difficult in indoor situations.
  • Pros- its is truly amazing.
  • You will definitely loved it.

Top Negative Reviews

  • Though, i was struggling with the focus ring and left exasperated, my recommendation would be to go for it if u r looking for portrait photography.
  • This is a good daily use lens and it produces really good quality videos but the lack of image stabilization hurts the overall video watching experience which comes out of the camera using this lens.
  • Works better in low light but in very low light it can still struggle.
  • The autofocus in low light struggles a bit focusing on corners for a sharper image.
  • Too bad that does not have vibration resistance.
  • It performs really terrible against the sun.
  • Its a poor man’s l series, albeit black!
  • Looking at the price i had a low impression .but i was wrong.
