New Lens to the Collection

Pretty eventful few weeks what with Easter and returning back to University.

Decided now I've paid my debts off... well, non university related debts that is... I've bought some bits to help towards my photography including; Sandisk 4gb II Compact Flash, Lowepro Slingshot 100 backpack and a Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II, still waiting for the lens to arrive but you can see a picture of it below:


  • Diagonal Angle of View: 46°
  • Lens Construction (elements/groups): 6/5
  • No. of Diaphragm blades: 5
  • Minimum Aperture: 22
  • Closest Focusing Distance (m): 0.45
  • Maximum Magnification (x): 0.15
  • AF Actuator: MM
  • Filter Diameter (mm): 52

Compact and high-performance, standard lens

This is the lightest EF lens of all at a mere 130g, very compact and providing a high-performance for a standard lens.
Its Gaussian optics provide sharp delineation from near to far focusing distances. The color balance is excellent for a standard lens.
