Canon EF 50mm F/1.8 STM Lens
The Canon EF 50mm F/1.8 STM is a normal prime designed for cameras with a Full-Frame sensor. This ultra-bright prime has a 50mm focal-length.
This prime can focus down to 35cm from the imaging plane which gives it a maximum magnification of 0.21X. The lens offers a Quick-Shift AF system which lets the user simply rotate the focus-ring to focus manually. A built-in focus motor is used to set the focus-distance. It allowed Canon to optimize the motor precisely for this lens in order to maximize performance.
This lens is only available for Canon EF. Follow this link for all current compatible digital cameras: Canon EF mount cameras with Full-Frame or smaller sensors.
