Ranjit, Uxbridge

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The new Canon 50mm f1.8 STM is in my opinion a much welcomed upgrade and after using it i would say its a well deserved one too. As a filmmaker I would dream of a 50mm with IS, but I can forgive some things and live the day to see IS appear on the lens. The focus ring has a much nicer and smoother touch and the STM feature is welcome addition to the lens. The previous lens was decent but felt plastic and didnt do any justice to filmmakers and wasnt worth the usage for filming. Make sure to use a hood as someone with big hands may have trouble getting their fingers in the frame whilst focusing. I even took few photos with it and the photos have come out nice and sharp with excellent bokeh. This upgrade was much needed but will wait a little longer to see an IS version come out.
Bad points:
Needs IS.

Good points:
It's a great lens for portraits and low light scenarios
Bad points:
You can't switch to manual focus when shooting a video without making a noise, unlike a previous version that allowed manual focus even when it was on auto mode
