Canon is going to release new interchangeable lens - EF50mm F1.8 STM - for their EOS cameras in late May.
The new EF50mm F1.8 STM lens is a successor model to the EF50mm F1.8 II, Canon's longtime popular EF lens - 25 years since it was released in December, 1990. The old model consistently sold approximately 70,000 units per month around the world.
The EF50mm F1.8 STM is based on the previous model's optical design. The aperture is changed to a 7-blade circular aperture. With an APS-C sensor built-in EOS camera, EF50mm F1.8 STM provides 80mm effective focal length (in 35mm terms).
Price: ¥19,500 Size: 69.2mm in diameter x 39.3mm in length Weight: 160g Minimum Focus: 0.35m Maximum Magnification: 0.21×
