Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II

The Canon EF 50mm f/1.8II has built a reputation as a great value for money lowlight lens. The large f/1.8 aperture size pulls extra light as possible into your photos.

This is Canon's entry level lens in the 50mm prime lens class. The two most noticeable compromises between the EF 50mm f/1.8II and the more expensive 50mm prime lenses that Canon offers are the build quality and the poorer quality bokeh. Bokeh is the picture quality of the out of focus areas of light in the shot.

Nevertheless this lens remains a good choice if you are looking to improve your lowlight photography options and you are on a budget.
