YONGNUO 50mm Prime F/1.8 for canon – Sample photos | Footage

I recently brought the YONGNUO 50mm Prime lens for Canon EF mount.

The lens is a great cheaper alternative for Canon’s own 50mm prime. For that price range the result was incredibly awesome. It is a standard prime lens for Canon Rebel digital camera. Works well with 5D, 7D, 60D, 70D, T3, T3i, T5, T5i, etc.

Canon 50 mm vs Yongnuo 50 mm

Below are the things I felt from first usage of my Yongnuo 50 mm Lens

  • Lens body is cheap. Durability is not comparable to Canon. Sometimes you feel that the internal lens parts are not fixed well. I found it bit shaky.
  • I guess this is the first autofocus lens from Yongnuo. And so the feature was not great. Most of the time it doesn’t focus on places it is supposed to.
  • Price: The price of Yongnuo is just around one third compared to Canon
  • Image quality of both the lens were almost similar. Though I found canon Images to be a bit more sharper.

Find below some of the photos I have clicked with this lens.

There is no conclusion such as one is better than the other. But if you have only a little to spend and ready to compromise a bit on image detailing, then Yongnuo is the choice. Otherwise go for Canon.

      • You can buy this lens for Canon from
    • Amazon India, you can go here.
    • For the Nikon version you can
    • Nikon: Amazon India go here.

  • First off you notice the design and build of the Yongnuo is very similar to the Canon. Both are plastic with a similar design. One could easily mistake one for the other.
