Canon EF 50mm f1.8 STM

An affordable, high quality lens that's perfect for creative portraits and low-light photos. Blur backgrounds to make your subject stand out, and enjoy smooth near-silent STM focusing when shooting movies.

A fantastic lens for portraits

The EF 50mm f/1.8 STM blurs the background behind your subject so they really stand out. It will also let you fill the frame without getting uncomfortably close, making it easier to get a natural expression on their face.

When used on a full-frame EOS camera the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM acts as a standard lens, giving a perspective, similar to that of the human eye - ideal for high-quality everyday photography.

Fast, virtually silent focusing

Near-silent STM technology focuses extremely quickly when shooting still photos, so you can react suddenly to capture fleeting moments. When capturing video focusing is smoother and slower, for footage that has a professional cinematic look to it.

A great performer in low-light conditions

The EF 50mm f/1.8 STM lets in lots of light, so you can keep shooting even when conditions begin to get dark. Capture the mood of the moment using atmospheric available light - you'll love the results!

Super-sharp image quality

This fixed, non-zooming lens delivers superb images, whether you're shooting photos or movies. Sharpness is enhanced, contrast is boosted and distortion is reduced for a more natural result.

The glass elements used in the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM are layered with Canon's bespoke Super Spectra coating, which prevents flare and ghosting when shooting into the light.

Compact ‘go-everywhere' design

The diminutive EF 50mm f/1.8 STM weighs just 160g and is only 40mm long, so you'll always have room for it in your bag. A tactile manual focus ring is easy to find and use without taking the camera away from your eye.
