SKU
RF5018STM

Nifty Fifty Reimagined

The Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 STM lens continues the legacy of the popular 50mm f/1.8 lens series, known for its versatility, compact size, and wide aperture, which originated during the SLR era. With the advantages of the RF mount, this lens offers even better image quality while retaining the beloved features of its predecessors. Its large aperture of f/1.8 allows for excellent low-light performance and creative depth of field control. Additionally, the lens is lightweight and compact with a magnification of 0.25x, it also offers the ability to capture detailed close-up shots.

A World of Possibilities in One Compact Lens

Explore a world of creative possibilities with the Canon RF 50mm 1.8 STM lens. Offering a natural perspective similar to the human eye’s, this versatile prime lens is ideal for portraits, landscapes, food, candid street photos, and more. At 160g it’s also exceptionally portable – perfect for travel and handheld photography or video.

Remarkable Clarity & Sharpness

Even at its widest aperture setting, the Canon RF 50mm 1.8 STM lens captures clear, sharp images, ensuring all of your subjects are recreated beautifully. When attached to the Canon EOS R5 or EOS R6 it offers an incredible 7 stops of combined camera-and-lens Image Stabilisation (IS). This results in remarkably sharper and clearer photos, and smoother video, even when you shoot indoor or night scenes without a tripod.

Beautiful Bokeh & Depth of Field

With a bright f1.8 maximum aperture, the Canon RF 50mm 1.8 STM lens perf orms superbly in low light. The wide aperture also creates beautifully soft background blur and shallow depth of field, enabling you to emphasise slivers of detail—like eyelashes in a portrait or a single flower in a landscape—for creative effect.

Embrace Close Detail

Embrace the details, be they in food, nature, or everyday life. The Canon RF 50mm 1.8 STM lens has a minimum focusing distance of 30cm, allowing you to capture quarter-macro shots at 0.25x magnification. This makes the Canon RF 50mm f1.8 STM lens an ideal choice for capturing small subjects from close range.

Smooth, Fast & Quiet Autofocus

Equipped with Stepping Motor (STM) technology, the Canon RF 50mm 1.8 STM lens offers impressively smooth, fast and quiet autofocus (AF). This means you’ll capture fleeting, candid moments sharply and almost silently, without needing to worry about distracting your subject or recording unwanted sound on video.
