The RF 50mm f/1.8 STM is a compact and lightweight lens great for day-to-day weighing at only 160g. It makes an excellent companion for any shooting occasion.
Shoot with confidence even when light levels drop. The RF 50mm f/1.8 STM offers up to 7 stops co-ordinated control with an EOS R series camera with In-Body Image Stabilization (IBIS), helping reduce the effects of camera shake. Have sharp and clear photos and videos when shooting handheld.
The RF 50mm f/1.8 STM features a lens control ring for customisable control over shutter speed, ISO or exposure compensation. The easy-to-identify textured surface gives you tangible feedback to adjust while looking through the viewfinder and concentrating on your subject.
Make your subject stand out with soft blurred backgrounds with a large aperture of f/1.8. Create artistic and impactful images particularly great for portraits or food photography.
Get up close and personal. The RF 50mm f/1.8 STM can focus from a distance of 30cm magnified up to 0.25x - a useful 5cm closer than the popular EF 50mm f/1.8 STM lens. Handy for more intricate shots like food, flowers and smaller subjects you really want to show off.
The RF 50mm f/1.8 STM uses a gear-type stepping motor to provide smooth and quiet autofocus, so focusing appears natural and seamless. Have clean transitions when moving between subjects or when focusing from the foreground to background, creating professional looking footage.
