Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Has Arrived

Last Saturday the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II that I ordered a few days back arrived.

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II

I've not had the chance to give it a proper test shoot yet, just a handful of family shots around the house but, so far, I'm impressed. All being well I'll give it a go some time this week and publish the results.


  1. The 50mm f/1.8 is a great lens - and is definitely great value for money.

    I love mine - it's great for low-light photography, and also works very well if you want a very short DOF.

  2. would this be worth getting for a cropped frame camera? or is 50mm to small of a field of view to be "normal"?

  3. When you say "cropped frame" you mean something like an APS-C? Well, as you can see above, I'm using this on my 400D (and now on my 50D).
