Canon has announced its EF 50mm f/1.8 STM prime lens which uses a stepper motor for quieter and more responsive autofocus compared to its ‘Mark II’ predecessor.
First EF 50mm f/1.8 STM lens sample images now available online at Canon China website. See the samples below taken with the Canon 6D DSLR camera.
The lens features a 7-blade circular aperture and minimum focus distance of 35cm – both improvements over the Mark II. This compact fifty is just 39mm long and weighs 160g, has a metal mount, and supports an optional integrated hood as well as 49mm filters.
