Thread: When do you use the 50mm f1.8 lens

  1. #1

    Default When do you use the 50mm f1.8 lens

    Just when you need the 50mm lens?

    Is the Canon 50mm f1.8 at f1.8 effective?

    What do you mean by "effective"?

    As for when to use it... Whenever you want to.

    almost every time the lens is mounted... cos you view thru the viewfinder with it wide open... its effectively using f1.8 to focus so that the AF system don't hunt... u pay much more for a f1.4 but shoot at f8 is the same equation...

    It is a nice workable lens. Cant compare with the 50L though as the latter cost 2k.

    But for its price, it certainly is a great bargain. why worry? just snap on and have fun with it.
