This lens is great for shots with low lighting (there will be times when your lighting might not be the best). It’s really compact, and super lightweight.
Anndddd my favorite feature is the fifty’s ability to produce a beautiful bokeh! (blurred background effect).
It’s a great beginner lens and most professional photographers keep one of these in their lens stash!
Recently I moved to Dallas! Learn more about that HERE, I lost my Canon 50mm in the transition. I was bummed, but decided I needed another 50 for a video shoot that I really had to submit for a brand. I was able to order the Yongnuo 50mm lens, which in my opinion works even better than my canon 50mm (Call me crazy, but..).
