Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II – Review

In this post I will review the photographs take by the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II lens at both the ends of its aperture spectrum. The first one is with the lens fully stopped down at f/22 and the second is where the lens is thrown wide open at the delicious f/1.8.

The lens obviously delivers superb bokeh with the supermodel thin depth of field (DoF) at f/1.8. However, chromatic aberration like purple fringing is observed when the photo is fully zoomed. At f/22 a crisp depth of field is obtained.

All in all with the price of the lens in mind (and without getting into a copyrights row with McDonald’s), “i’m lovin’ it”. 🙂
