  • Conclusion: The Canon EF 50mm F1.8 II may be one of the cheapest lenses currently on the market, but its optics belie its lowly price. As befits a classic standard prime lens, it's very sharp when stopped down (especially in the centre), shows minimal chromatic aberration, and has relatively low distortion;...
  • Pros: Excellent image quality when stopped down, Essentially no lateral chromatic aberration, Extremely cheap
  • Cons: Extremely cheaply built, Harsh and distracting bokeh due to pentagonal aperture, Vignetting at wide apertures on full frame (which only disappears at F3.5), Inconsistent autofocus in low light (most problematic when using large apertures)

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II (Full Format) - Review / Test Report

  • Conclusion: The Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II may be a "cheap" lens but it is undoubtedly a capable one. It shares its characteristics with most other 50mm lenses, reads: it's somewhat soft at f/1.8 but at medium aperture settings it is hard to beat with respect to resolution.

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II - Review / Test Report

photozone.de
7 November 2007
  • Conclusion: At the beginning of this review I stated that the 50mm f/1.8 II is the cheapest lens in the Canon line. Cheap really refers to the price tag only because for a price below 100 EUR you get a light-weight, high performing lens. So most affordable may be a better wording here.

  • Summary: Canon EF 50 mm f/1.8 II — тот самый объектив, который обязательно должен иметь в своем кофре каждый «кенонист», будь он зеленым новичком, или уже обросшим аппаратурой и объективами продвинутым любителем. Свои деньги он оправдывает на все 100.

  • Excerpt: Alle canon brukere bør vurdere dette Det finnes ingen konkurrenter i nærheten av pris/ytelse forholdet her. Kjøp!
  • Pros: Super optikk, Lett, Lysterkt, Bedre enn de aller fleste 4-6000Kr. zoom linser på 50mm
  • Cons: Ingenting i forhold til prisen. Billig konstruksjon med plast fatning - men pass på den litt da vel!

  • Excerpt: et godt alternativ Medmindre man er dækket ind af canons helt top-linser, så er det her virkelig et godt køb. Jeg kan kun give den topanbefaling. Den burde være en del af alle fotografers linsearsenal.
  • Pros: Godt objektiv til billige penge. Nedblændet tager det enormt flotte og skarpe billeder. God i dårlig lys. Faktisk et rigtig godt portrætobjektiv (med cropfaktor 1,6 på dslr bliver det rigtig godt!).
  • Cons: Der er sparret på gevind (plastik), objektivet virker billigt (hvad det også er) og AF knappen er lidt kringlet. Modlysblænde kræver efter hvad jeg ved en adapter., 2. Må blendes kraftig ned til 5.6 eller mindre før det tegner skarpt. Da tegner det til gjengjeld meget skarpt. Men et lyssterkt nor...
