Hi all! Today I’m going to talk about my experience with the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM lens. Bought it half a year ago, gave about 8 thousand. I immediately put a UV filter and a hood for protection, because without a hood it looks very small. I immediately set the aperture priority, opened it to the maximum, and started doing “miracle” portraits. I have a D600 with Kitovskiy 18–135, portraits are much cooler compared to it. Exposure metering has to be spot metering, otherwise the probability of missing is very high (there will be soap). and in general the number of “soapy photographs” has grown, when shooting, one and a half, two meters, a shift of the subject by 2–3 cm can give a light soap, with an open aperture, of course. clearly, it’s worth it. The decision to take more pictures, delete the soapy ones. The picture gives a clear, constructive normal, it takes a little long to focus compared to even 135, but the picture quality is much superior. “Conclusion: an awesome lens for its modest money. I almost forgot, it’s also light. I really like it, I use it in all kinds of situations, not only as a portrait lens, I rarely close the aperture. Even on a sunny day at ISO 100 I output due to the minimum shutter speed at 1.8 aperture.But if you take pictures in the machine, do not expect great photos.If only semi-programmed modes should be mastered!Thanks everyone!If something is wrong, sorry, first review.
