Lightweight and Totally Affordable
Once upon a time in a far away land there lived a beautiful 50mm
lens that was the fairest
normal camera lens of all and was the
optical measurement by which all the lens makers of the kingdom were
evaluated and compared. Basic peasant level starter lenses have now
moved to the
zoom lens forest, but you can strike up a benefit from all the years of study
and development that went into creating the 50mm lens which might
just be the absolute
best lens bargain in the kingdom that you will ever feast your eyes on. At
$99.99 direct from ebay land can you not afford one of these enchanted lenses? This is true
for any 50mm lens, not Canon alone. Keep this iin mind.
At f/1.8 a lens allows in 2.5 times the light of an f/2.8 lens.
Optically, not many lenses are going to be better than the f/1.8 -
great color rendition, strong contrast, and incredibly sharp and crisp even when shooting while wide open. This lens becomes one of three goto lenses that I automatically pick up when the image quality is really important, (typical internet price $472). Having just uttered that, this lens becomes a 80mm moderate
telephoto lens (35mm equivalent) when mounted on an
APS-C image sensor camera camera if you want "NORMAL" on an APS-C image sensor camera, which brings me to the second lens. I'd grab the Canon 44.8
equivalent 28mm f/1.8 or the third lens, a Nikon 35mm f/1.8 if you're a Nikon shooter, or maybe the (48mm equivalent) Sigma 30mm f/4
at a typical internet price of $439.
Lightweight and totally affordable, the EF 50mm optical lens--which boasts a
fast f/1.8 aperture--making it the ideal lens for people who prefer
single focal length lens. This is
Canon's lightest weight EF lens weighing in on the scale at mere 4.6 ounces, the lens shows off a more traditional Gauss-style optical construction that delivers sharp crisp images even when shot wide open. Resulting a lens that delivers an image that's pretty darn close to the wat your eye comprehends a subject, making it perfect for portraits and other images requiring a more normal depth of field. Additionally, the lens focuses down to 18 inches, assisting you in taking extreme close-ups. And at last, the lens delivers exceptional color consideration. As with every Canon lens, this lens comes with a one-year warranty
The lightest Canon EF lens ever, weighing a meager 0.29 lb. Exceptionally compact and a high-performing, standard optical lens. Its Gaussian construction allows sharp delineation from close to far-off focusing expanses. And for a standard lens the color balance is superb.
