Yongnuos New 50mm Gets a Sexy Makeover

Its been a busy couple of weeks for third-party lens manufacturer, Yongnuo. Last week the brand unveiled a new 60mm macro lens and this week theres some exciting news for Canon photographers because Yongnuo has refreshed its popular 50mm f/1.

8 lens.

It seems like good news all round as the highly affordable will only cost around $75 - making it suitable for newcomers to photography who wish to dip their toe into the waters of prime, fast aperture optics without breaking the bank. Whats more, the Yongnuo YN 50mm f/1. 8 II has a fresh design and some new features, too.

Featuring a modern design, the YN 50mm f/1. 8 II gives a lot of bang for your buck.

Design-wise, the styling has for the MkII has become a lot more modern, with a sleeker look and more of a matte finish to the lens. At the front of the lens is a focus distance indicator to help photographers estimate distance and next to it is a striking red ring, not totally dissimilar to the red ring found on Canons own series of professional-specification optics.

The YN 50mm f/1. 8 II offers photographers both auto and manual focus, with the focus adjusted by turning the focus ring at the front of the lens when manual focus (MF) is selected. Whats more, the closest focusing distance has been shortened from the original lens to just 35cm that which, while not being able to match the magnification of a macro lens, should allow for photographers to capture close up details of a subject.

Come on, how about that sexy red ring?

Built around a five elements in six groups design, the lens features a chrome-plated and high-accuracy metal mount and is incredibly lightweight, tipping the scales at just 162g - making it a suitable optic to pack in your kit bag when you head off on your travels.

50mm primes are a great lens choice for portraiture thanks to the flattering focal length. The large maximum aperture of f/1. 8 will enable users to not only create a shallow depth of field - keeping subjects sharp while blurring backgrounds but also allow for fast shutter speeds in low light conditions. At present, only the Canon version of the lens is available, but reports suggest more fitments will follow soon.

The optics are coated to control backlight ghost and glare.
