Being bulky or inconvenient to carry is never a concern with the RF50mm f/1.8 STM lens. Its compact size makes it appealing to bring on any trip or excursion and is quite handy to have around, too, with its 50mm fixed focal length letting you be creative with composition and because the 50mm focal length is similar to what the actual human eye sees, it provides a great representation to capture impressive portraits, landscapes, food photos and more.
Low-Light Photography and Creative Background Blur
The f/1.8 aperture provides you with a number of benefits and options for your photography, including being able to shoot with faster shutter speeds in low light, helping to decrease the effects of camera shake for a more steady shot, reducing the amount of noise in your image, and the ability to beautifully blur the background or foreground depending on your creative taste.
Smooth and Quiet Continuous AF
The RF50mm f/1.8 STM lens uses a gear-type stepping motor to provide smooth and quiet autofocus when shooting both still and video, so focusing appears seamless while following a subject with Servo AF, or Movie Servo AF. Focus racks will have clean transitions when repositioning to another subject, or when focusing from foreground to background.
