Canon 50mm f1.8 vs 50mm f1.4 – Is it worth the extra money?
In this video I’ll be answering a question I get asked all the time – should you get the more expensive canon 50mm f1.4 lens or go for the cheaper f1.8 prime lens? We went to the beach to put the lenses head to head in a series of tests to see the real difference between the quality of the shots. We tested for sharpness, colour, contrast, depth of field, chromic aberration and the bokeh effect to find out if the f1.4 is really worth the extra money, or if the 50mm f1.8 STM, the so-called nifty 50, does the job just as well. The results may surprise you as it did us.
This is a great canon 50mm lens review that will hopefully inform you on what one to buy.
