Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Standard Lens

Product information

Fast maximum aperture and rapid focusing set the Canon EF 50mm apart from the herd. Versatile enough for just about any type of photography, it’s an essential part of any Canon DSLR user’s setup.

Key benefits:

  • Advanced Gaussian optics and two high-refraction lens elements let you capture crisp, clean images, even wide open at F/1.4. The lens is ideal for photographing landscapes and travel scenes as well as portraits.
  • An ultrasonic motor (USM) powers rapid - near silent - autofocus. Full manual override is available, making it possible to adjust focus without leaving AF mode.
  • The circular aperture gives out of focus regions a softer feel making foreground objects stand out against a smoother, blurred background.
  • Super Spectra coating keeps colour balance vibrant and accurate, while reducing unwanted flare and ghosting for sharper images than ever.
  • For use with EF mount Canon DSLR cameras

Q & As

Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Standard Lens 4.7 5 3 3
Very good purchase I highly rate this product I am able a achieve professional looking images with it. 10 June 2014
Great quality lens I have had the lens for a month now and tried it in various shooting modes. It seems to work well in all modes. It seems well built and feels like a good weight and size. Have taken some very nice shots and found excellent blurring of background and nice sharp focussing. Overall I rate it and find its a great lens for portrait and some landscape. Well worth the money and worth having in your kit bag. 13 December 2012
Great Lens Amazing lens, the f1.4 lets you shoot in very little light and still get crisp shots. A great lens for portraits and a big difference between this and the 50mm f1.8 in terms of build quality, well worth the money in my opinion. 17 July 2012
