Canon just released the RF 50mm f/1.8 IS STM Lens. Here are the latest reviews of the bright prime optic with hands-on videos.
Compact and lightweight, the Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 STM is a sleek normal-length Nifty-fifty offering a classic, versatile field of view and an ideal lens for every day, walkaround shooting, We recommend the RF 50mm 1.8 lens for anyone who is trying to get into portrait photography. This is an inexpensive standard prime lens for the company’s full-frame mirrorless bodies. It has a minimum focus distance of 30cm (0.98ft) and a max magnification of 0.25x. The lens weighs just 160g (5.6oz) and is 41mm (1.6″) thick.
From The-Digital-Picture conclusion :
While the Canon RF 50mm F1.8 STM Lens is not the highest performing lens from an image quality perspective, the image quality is decent (quite good stopped down), and this lens holds some strong benefits.
At the top of the advantages list is this lens’s bottom of the line price, half that of the next least expensive RF option at review time. The focal length has great general-purpose utility, and the wide aperture provides strong advantages over narrow aperture zoom lenses. The compact size and light weight mean there is always space and energy for the RF 50mm F1.8 to be in the kit. Having the lens along and the energy to use it means getting more and better images.
The Canon RF 50mm F1.8 STM Lens is a great option for beginners, kids, those wanting a low light lens to complement a lower-end kit lens, those on a tight budget, or those needing the unique advantages this lens offers.
