Know your gear

Some items like your keys or wallet you just take everywhere you go because you just never know. For anyone with an EOS R series camera, add the RF50mm F1.8 STM lens to that list. As part of the EOS R System, it's nice and compact thanks to its RF mount so you can shoot - and get a great shot - anywhere and anytime. Size isn't all though. As a fixed focal length lens, it lets you be creative with composition and can be used for a wide range of scenes from snapshots to portraits, landscapes to low-light situations and more. Those images will stand out, too, just like you intend whether on social media, or when sharing or printing, thanks to impressive optical features like a PMo aspherical lens to suppress aberrations, Super Spectra coating to reduce flaring and ghosting, and a large f/1.8 aperture for low-light shooting and beautiful bokeh. Pick it up and use it one time and you'll see for yourself, and you won't be able to leave the house without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Nifty Fifty It is the RF version of the nifty fifty. It is fifty, but not so nifty at 200 bones. That isn't much of an issue if you are buying RF lenses because of the increase prices across the board. I bought the new mirror less 50mm from a competitor and this is a much better deal. The lens does make noise when focusing if that is something you worry about. Otherwise it is a great little walk around lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow what an amazing little lens I bought this lens last week for me canon EOS R and I must say after watching many talking head videos i was starting to regret the purchase before it arrived. Now that I have it and have had the chance to use it all I can say is wow. It is an incredibly small lens on the R and is very discrete. The image quality is sharp and amazing for both portraits and landscape. I think this is a must have lens its small and sharp. I do not at all regret this purchase. I only wish hat it came with a lens hood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens! This has been a great lens for the past few days I have used it. Took some solid pictures, very sharp in my opinion. I was using my Canon EOS RP.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good not great Not the best but not the worst. This lens fit a niche as a light and bright 50mm. I'd say the EQ is reasonable but not what one can get from far more expensive and heavier options. But, it is easy to carry and works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not Much Improved but Everyone Should Have a Nifty Fifty It's a fine lens. Every Canon shooter should have a Nifty Fifty in their bag. They're very packable, and provide acceptable image quality for a variety of scenarios. The 50mm focal length, the no matter which lens, is a good all-arounder. The new RF version seems a bit more solidly built than the most recent EF iteration. It doesn't do anything exceptionally well, but it's "fine" for general shooting, and the price point is very affordable. If you already have the latest EF 50 1.8 STM, the only major driver to update to this lens is to eliminate the adapter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and compact and fun to use After purchasing the new to me Canon EOS RP with the RF 24-105 this was the next lens I decided to get after reading the positive reviews and knowing that a 50mm is a lens that has always been part of my equipment in the past. I can only say it has turned out to be a sound decision and the lens is going to get a lot of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprised I'm using this on the RP body. Reviews are so mixed on this lens that I really didn't know what to expect. Some lenses do not test well on technical reviews but work wonderfully in real world use. This is one of those lenses. My first image blew me away. I'm very happy. It feels good in hand and appears to be well made. It's just a great low element count lens that produces beautiful true to life images. Don't judge it by its price. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is due to its widely known f/1.8 shortcomings. I don't shoot at f/1.8 so I don't care. Highly recommended!
