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.
