Weighing in at just 130g this is Canon’s most compact and lightest standard lens.
Just because it’s small though, doesn’t mean it is lacking in features.
With a fast f/1.8 aperture, it is a great lens for the photo enthusiast who prefers a fixed focal range across the length of the lens.
Featuring a Gausse type optical design the EF 50mm f1.8 II provides sharp performance and great colour balance. It can focus as close as 45cm, making it quite a versatile standard lens.

What your buying (unless you own a 5D) is an 80mm, just keep that in mind if your wondering why your images are so tight.Quality is very good, as expected from primes but it has canons typical warm glass look.It's T-stop (if it had one) is probably around 2.4 which is more or less no mans land as far as focus goes. F-stops shouldn't be a selling point.It has a focus ring the size of my finger nail. Not joking.It is made of plastic and I have heard the glass is of high quality plexi-glass but considering the price tag and it's nick name 'the nifty fifty'.Good lens. Good buy.
