Review – Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lens

Pros
Lightweight.
Fast.
SHARP! Images from this are gorgeous.
Beautiful Bokeh!

Cons
Plastic mount instead of metal. Be careful with it and it’ll last you a while. But don’t drop it!

This is the lightest EF lens of all at a mere 4.6 oz. (130g). Compact and high-performance, standard lens. Its Gaussian optics provides sharp delineation from near to far focusing distances.

The color balance is excellent for a standard lens.
This lens performs great in low light conditions, close ups and portraits.

The 50mm f/1.8 is also know for the beautiful blurred background also known as (bokeh ). I have owned this lens since 2008 and have used it in low light; shooting headshots, before and after beauty makeovers for fashion shows and performance was great.

The only thing I wished that it was USM like the 50mm f/1.4. The lens is more bangs for the buck, but has a plastic feel to it. I am in the cosmetology field whereas head shots are used as posters, calendars and shop catalogs and the 50mm really is a winner.

I would certainly recommend this lens to all my friends and colleagues in the photography field.

This lens is a MUST HAVE lens if you own a Canon D-SLR and an ideal first lens.
