Used Canon EF 50mm 1:1.8 II Lens


1 in stock



Up for sale is a used Canon EF 50mm 1:1.8 II Lens.  Known by many as a nifty fifty. The ‘nifty’ part comes from a very wide aperture. The ‘fifty’ refers to the focal length. 50mm lenses are by far one of the most popular lenses on the market. A fast 50mm lens is the closest you can get to the human eye. This means low distortion and a similar field of view. 50mm primes generally have a shallow depth of field because they feature a wide aperture. Making the EF 50mm 1:1.8 II perfect for shooting live music, indoor events, or in low light situations. The shallow depth of field is also what creates the bokeh effect. Unlike the Canon EF 50mm 1:1.8 STM Lens this one uses mechanical control when it manual mode, so you can feel the movement of the lens elements when focusing.

All images show the actual item you will receive.  We’ve detailed all of the exterior surfaces so its ready for its new owner.
