The RF 50mm f/1.8 STM has high image quality over the entire screen from the maximum aperture, providing you with crisp and clear photos. When mounted on an EOS R5 or EOS R6, the RF 50mm f/1.8 STM achieves a maximum Image Stabilization (IS) of 7 stops. The camera and lens combined IS corrects shake more accurately, providing sharper and clearer images. It is particularly handy when taking handheld photos in dark setting such as night scenes or indoors.
The RF 50mm f/1.8 STM has a compact and lightweight design weighing at only 160g. When mounted to your EOS R series camera, it offers excellent mobility and portability, making it ideal for street photography and everyday snapshots.
The RF 50mm f/1.8 STM features the lens control ring, which is unique to Canon’s RF lenses. This feature offers customisable control over shutter speed, ISO or exposure compensation.
The RF 50mm f/1.8 STM with its wide f/1.8 aperture brings your subject into sharp focus and softly blurs the background. You can create a beautiful round circular bokeh, play around with an extremely shallow depth of field, and even stop movement in dark scenes.
The RF 50mm f/1.8 STM provides a similar field of vision to the human eye. This allows you to shoot a variety of expressions by simply adjusting the aperture, shooting distance, angle, and composition. With one lens you can shoot multiple scenes such as portraits, landscapes, snapshots and food.
The RF 50mm f/1.8 STM has a minimum focusing distance of 0.30m and supports quarter macro shooting with a maximum shooting magnification of 0.25x. This makes it ideal for shooting small subjects such as desserts.
“Compact, lightweight and close-focusing, the RF 50mm f/1.8 STM is a remarkable little lens that is priced within the range of everyday photographers.”
