Canon 50mm f/1.8

Canon 50mm f/1.8

I have been keeping a watch on this lens to see if the price goes down more than it already is. My friend Sarah has her eye on it right now. Today the list price is $200.00, but the Canon 50mm f/1.8 is on sale for $103.89 that is a 48% savings.  Anytime someone asks me what lens is my favorite I still have to say this one. It is my go to lens in so many situations. the dark room, the portrait, when I really want a shallow depth of field. If you’re on the fence about this one and not sure if you should buy it… do it!

Official Product Description:

Amazon.com Product Description Lightweight and affordable, the Canon EF 50mm lens–which offers a fast f/1.8 aperture–is an excellent lens for people who prefer a fixed focal length. Canon’s lightest EF lens at a mere 4.6 ounces, the lens boasts a traditional Gauss-type optical design that delivers a sharp performance even when wide open.

In addition, the lens focuses as close as 18 inches, helping you take extreme close-ups. Finally, the lens offers an excellent color balance. As with all Canon lenses, the lens carries a one-year warranty.
