The focus can be automatically adjusted in the 50 mm lens to shoot images and take photographs of a subject with a minimum focusing distance of 45 cm. The 46-degree coverage angle of this Canon lens allows you to click different format pictures including APS-C formats. With an aperture range of f/1.4-22, this Canon EF f/1.4 allows you to shoot sharp and vibrant outdoor photos. The 0.15x magnification of the lens helps you to clearly view the undersized objects. With the construction of 7 elements in 6 groups and 8 diaphragm blades, this Canon lens controls the 50 mm lens performance to deliver quality photos. The 58 mm filter of the Canon EF f/1.4 protects the lens from dirt and grease.
