Canon EF 50mm f1.4 for DSLR

Canon EF 50mm f1.4 for DSLR

I ended buying the Canon EF 50mm f1.8 because of price. But the Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 is awesome. As I learn more about DSLR cameras I am surprised to find out what a difference the f-stop makes for letting in natural light.   You can check out some photos from the flickr group Canon EF 50mm f1.4 @ flickr.

As for hunting around and finding a good price Amazon comes in at $349.00 +Free Shipping. Buy.com is selling it as a kit for $349.00 +Free Shipping.

Here is the official Product Description:

The 50mm f/1.4 standard lens is a terrific choice for both casual and professional photographers. The lens is outfitted with two high-refraction lens elements and new Gaussian optics, which combine to eliminate astigmatism and suppress astigmatic difference. As a result, the lens obtains crisp images with little flare even at the maximum aperture. The lens’s f/1.4 speed, meanwhile, is perfect for available-light shooting. And as a bonus, this lens is the only lens in the EF system to offer an extra-small Micro Ultra Sonic Motor (USM) while still providing a full-time manual focusing option. Other features include a close focusing distance of 1.5 feet, a 58mm filter size, and a one-year warranty.

  1. I love my Canon 50mm! I too went with the f/1.8, which is still wonderful even at its low cost. It lets in so much warm light and takes beautiful photographs. Just imagine how nice the f/1.4 is!

  2. That is what surprised me the most about the f/1.8 you think the low cost would mean it’s not that great, but it is awesome!
