EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lens is a precision-made professional short-telephoto lens. Its aperture of f/1.8 and focal length of 50mm is used for low-light photography and those conditions where very shallow depth of field is needed. The lens is perfect for creative portraiture. This new medium telephoto lens uses a high-speed CPU, Ring-type USM, and enhanced algorithms to attain an autofocus speed approximately 1.8x faster than the EF 85mm f/1.2L USM. The floating optical system contains an aspherical lens element that suppresses aberrations and guarantees outstanding imaging performance. It is compatible with APS-C and Full Frame Sensor DSLR Cameras.
Product Features in Detail
The L-series is Canon's flagship professional lens range, representing the best in precision-designed EF optics. L-series lenses combine superior performance with superlative handling, and are resistant to dust and moisture.
Very fast maximum aperture
A large maximum aperture of f/1.2 allows the use of fast shutter speeds when shooting in low light. The lens also enables fine control over focusing, allowing extremely shallow depth of field for creative effects in portraiture, for example.
Smooth background blur
A virtually circular aperture diaphragm gives out of focus regions a softer, more uniform feel. Sharp foreground objects stand out against a smooth blurred background.
A ring-type ultrasonic motor drives autofocus extremely quickly, and in near silence. Excellent holding torque ensures the point of focus is reached accurately, without overshooting. Furthermore, full-time manual override is available, making it possible to adjust focus without leaving AF mode.
Super Spectra coating
Super Spectra coatings ensure accurate colour balance and enhance contrast. They also reduce flare and ghosting – a common problem caused by light bouncing off a camera's sensor.
Integration with E-TTL II flash metering
The lens passes distance information back to a compatible EOS camera's E-TTL II flash system to ensure optimal flash metering.
