Choosing Additional Camera Lenses

Capturing that special moment in time is the goal of all professional and hobbyist photographers. An EF 50mm f/1.4 lens makes the job easier. Get as close as you want while cutting out backgrounds and other distractions that may take away from the subject itself. Before you decide, it's important to know the benefits of the different lens sizes and which lens will benefit you and your projects.

Which Specifications Should I Consider Before Choosing a Camera Lens?

  • Focal length - As the lens' angle of view, the focal length is your ability to zoom in to get up close and personal with your subject matter without having to be right upon it.
  • Aperture - Lower is better. The maximum aperture refers to the amount of light the lens allows in when snapping a picture. The lower the number, the wider the aperture, and therefore, the more light that passes through the lens. For example, the Canon f/1.4 lets more light in than a f/3.5.
  • Image stabilization - A built-in image stabilization gives you sharper photos because it reduces the blur that often occurs when your hands shake a bit while taking a picture.
  • USM technology - Different brands, including Canon, use a USM lens (ultrasonic motor technology) which allows users to autofocus. That being said, the autofocus feature is readily overridden by adjusting the focus ring manually.
  • Macro - Those that plan to take a lot of close-focusing pictures need to consider whether or not the lens is macro compatible. Typically, you can reverse mount any lens to take macro shots, but you may not get the sharpest photos unless you chose one that is labeled for up close magnification.

What Are the Benefits of a 50mm F/1.4 Lens?

  • Compact and lightweight - A 50mm lens is not only compact so that it doesn't take up much space in your camera bag, but it is also lightweight making it ideal for long photo sessions.
  • Versatile - Snap a picture in any situation. Take portraits, action shots, nature, and landscapes without needing to exchange lenses. What's more, it works in both low light and full sun.
  • A "standard" lens - Standard doesn't mean generic, it means that in the case of a 50mm lens, it matches the perspective of the human eye. Therefore, you don't feel like you're looking through a camera, but are merely looking at the subject.
  • Fast - Shutter speed is extremely important in low light situations. A f/1.8 lens lets in six times more light than a f/5.6 lens, thus making it ideal for low light situations.
