The Canon RF 50mm F1.8 STM Lens is a small, light and affordable lens with a fast f/1.8 aperture, ideal in low light and great for creative depth-of-field. With new optics and a very quiet STM motor, this modern "nifty fifty" will advance your photography.
Recreate that cinema look and take your photography to a new level of creativity by experimenting with different apertures.
This image, shot at f/8, shows the face in focus as well as more details are visible in the background.
By f/4 the background is nicely soft, similar to a standard zoom lens.
At maximum aperture of f/1.8, the subject really stands out against a very soft background.
Create artistic and impactful images at lower ISO thanks to a wide f/1.8 aperture that achieves sharp focus on a subject yet delivers a beautiful blurred background.
The STM (Stepping Motor) technology focuses very smoothly and in near-silence, ideal for stills and video. Super Spectra Coating on the lens elements ensure quality.
At 160g and 40.5mm, it is a highly compact and lightweight partner for your day-to-day shooting with EOS R-series cameras, with no adapter required.
Very discreet with a combined focusing and control ring for intuitive control, the lens has a 7-blade circular aperture for superb bokeh and focuses to 0.3m.
The RF 50mm F1.8 STM lens is a simple yet hugely versatile lens. Its superior sharpness, great low light performance and stunning bokeh make it ideal for many types of photography and video.
The RF 50mm F1.8 STM lens focusses down to 30cm - a useful 5cm closer than the popular EF 50mm f/1.8 STM lens. The image on the left is taken with the EF 50mm lens at 35cm, while the image on the right is taken with the RF 50mm F1.8 STM at 30cm.
