    Great price for the nifty fifty. Such a good lens for the price!

    •  

      Legitimately one of two lenses you need on a Canon, ignore the noise and lab rats, get one of these bad boys and thank OP later.

    •  

      I got this same one, STM version actually. Better than the kit zoom lens on my Rebel T3, except when you need to zoom. You can easily create that bokeh effect with the 50mm that the new iPhones do.

        Except this one actually uses the lens’s focal legnth to achieve the effect. The iPhone effect is artificially generated.

  •  

    So tempted

  •  

    Thank you just got one for my daughter.

  •  

    Worth the upgrade from the old non STM version?

    •  

      From what I have read, it reduces glare by a decent amount. Might be worth it if you're tossing up between buying the two, but maybe not if you already have a II.

      If you plan to use it for videos, then yes. For photos, not much point spending too much on a nifty fifty.

    •  

      I have both. I much prefer the STM, but I'd use either. Lots of Youtube videos comparing the two if you really want to know. Note that it's one of the noisier STM lenses. Still much quieter than the II, but not noiseless in video.

      Neither lens is sharp wide open. Use it at f/2.5 and above.

      As someone who prefers to shoot at f/8 where the light allows I didn't buy the thing for the bokeh.

    •  

      iirc, the STM version has 7 aperture blades vs 5 on the non STM version

      Mmm doesn't look good…

        Thanks. That's a shame, even 1% was handy :(

          I eBay via the Velocity Rewards site, prefer to get 1 point per dollar than 1%
          I use Cashrewards/Shopback for other sites like Aliexpress since their cashback rate is better than points (assuming 1 point = 1%)

    Any good for video and dual pixel AF?

  •  

    Can I use this on a 80d Canon? I currently got a 550d planning for an upgrade of the body and lens

    •  

      Yes, you will be able to use this lens on both cameras.

    •  

      Yes, however you multiply the focal length by the 1.6 crop factor so it essentially becomes an 80mm lens. This is the same on both the 550D and 80D, they're both crop sensor cameras. 80mm is still a very usable focal length, we use this lens all the time on an 800D.

      •  

        Thanks so you mean I need a full frame to take advantage of its full focal length…

        Then what's a good upgrade from 550D?

        I'm ok to spend 1.5k max

        Reason to upgrade shutter speed, better low light and more focal points. Wireless and NFC

        I mostly take kids photos and on holidays trips.

          Cheapest Canon full frame is probably the 6D which is around $1800 usually?

        •  

          I reckon you should try this lens on the 550d and see how you go. I have an 80d and while it might be newer I'm not sure if it's worth the upgrade if you are mainly taking pics. 80d does 1080p video pretty good but can't do 4k same with the 6dII.

          Picked up a 6D used for about $900 a year ago. Absolute beast of a camera (last canon I owned was a 60D yonks ago) and I would argue best bang for buck.

          I would also argue if you get the 6D I wouldn’t get this 50mm, probably the F1.4 variant is best.

          If you have $1.5k and aren’t afraid of used, a 6D + 24-105 F4L or a few prime lenses (35mm is my favourite general purpose but 50is cheaper, 85 F1.8 is solid too) will get you in a good spot depending on how much flexibility you need.

          Also YMMV, just my opinion

  •  

    Great price. Recently bought from Kogan for. $160 with the AMEX deal for my canon 200D and it’s epic for portraits.

    It seems to be out of stock - damn I should have just clicked it.
