Don´t you have a  nifty-fifty yet? Are you a filmmaker and don´t like the plastic sound of your old 50mm? Don´t you know how to get images with bokeh?. Our friend  Chris Lavigne from shares with us this video gear review about the new Canon 50mm:

This new 50mm f/1.8 STM replaces the plastic 50mm f/1.8 wonder-lens referred to as the 'nifty-fifty'. It received some welcome updates to make it an awesome addition to a video producers camera bag.
  • New focus ring for smooth manual focus
  • Updated STM stepping motor for smooth autofocus
  • Improved minimum focusing distance at just over 1 foot
  • Updated aperture blades for prettier bokeh
  • Metal mount which adds durability

What the lens retained from it's predecessor is the crazy-low price point of $125, making it the perfect entry-level prime/fixed lens.-said Chris Lavigne-
