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.
