About the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lens
Mount the EF 50mm f/1.8 II lens to your Canon SLR camera and capture sharp, crystal-clear images. Its large maximum aperture of f/1.8 gathers lots of light to give you a bright view through your viewfinder, plus it means you can use faster shutter speeds to "freeze" moving subjects. This lens is also ideal for taking great-looking photos indoors without a flash — its 50mm focal length makes it a perfect choice for portraits and all-around picture taking. And its compact, lightweight design won't weigh you down during extended shooting sessions.
