|Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens|
I reported last week Canon announced the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM lens. The new lens is a big improvement over the old EF 50mm f/1.8 model and comes with a stronger, metal mount. The new 50mm f/1.8 STM features an improved design with STM technology for almost silent and smooth auto focusing. It comes with “super spectra” lens coating, has a minimum focusing distance of 0.35m (~1.15ft) and a 7-blade aperture. The weight is slightly heavier, 160g compared to 130g for its predecessor.
You can see sample photos taken with this lens. Many retailers have the lens in stock and ready to ship now.
