Canon EF 50mm F1.8 Lens is one of the best lens currently available at very cheap prices by Microglobe. It is a medium telephoto lens with a large aperture that brings the subject closer with fine details. Creating excellent background blur, Canon 50mm II gives a longer flash range, and affords a faster shutter speed to freeze the action. Canon EF 50mm f1.8 is a standard zoom lens, with its natural angle of view and perspective. Canon 50mm F/1.8 Lens captures the subject plainly, with no special effects. However, you can use standard lenses like Canon 50mm in creative ways by varying the subject distance, aperture, and angle.


Among the Canon lenses, it's very sharp when stopped down (especially in the centre), shows minimal chromatic aberration, and has relatively low distortion; APS-C users will also benefit from extremely low vignetting. This design leads to sometimes-poor bokeh (image quality of out of focus areas). The Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lens takes the optional ES-62 Lens Hood that includes the Hood Adapter 62.

Canon EF 50mm F1.8 II Lens features traditional Gauss-type such that optical design is extremely sharp. It can take a photo without flash in light that is one quarter as bright as the light required by a consumer zoom (usually these have max apertures of around f/4). Multi-layered lens coatings maximize light transmission to get brighter, sharp and high contrast images independent of bright or dim lights.           

Compatibility: Canon EF 50mm F/1.8 Lens though designed for standard lens but shows greater compatibility with APS-C format DSLRs, on which it behaves like a short telephoto portrait lens (80mm equivalent). It is ideally used for landscapes, portraits, weddings, sports and other general purpose creative photography.
