Product Expert camera lenses

The Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM is a standard lens for Canon cameras with a full frame or APS-C fitting. The lens is suitable for portrait and product photography. The large maximum aperture of f/1.4 ensures a lot of depth of field and a bokeh effect in your photos. This creates a nice round blur in the background of your photo. The lens uses a silent focusing motor, which allows you to silently take pictures of your pet. Take razor-sharp shots from 45cm distance. The lens has aspherical lens elements. These ensure a high color contrast in your photos of your purring cat or waggling dog.

  • Pros:
    redelijk licht
  • Pros:
    mooie foto's
  • Pros:
    gemakkelijk in gebruik
  • Con:
    niet waterdicht

goede prijs-kwaliteit. alleen rekening houden dat deze lens niet waterdicht is en er "mistige" foto's gemaakt worden als je in de regen zit. Deze lens gebruik ik voor portretfotografie
