Remember Digital Goja showroom has one of the nation’s largest in-store selection of authorized Canon cameras and lenses. Now, first one up here is the Nifty Fifty, this guy is a 51.8 STM, really popular lens, still an EF mount lens so that means it will work on your full frame cameras and on a crop sensor camera you take into consideration the 1.6x conversion, but it still gives you a very decent Bokeh, even for economical prime lens like this. Now of course their premium is this guy, the 51.2, they both have eight aperture blades but on the 1.2 they’re rounded to give you that softer more creamy bokeh effect, of course the lens is considerably larger, heavier and pricier, but if, that is your end result, you want some beautiful blurred out background and that soft bokeh effect the 1.2 is the leader when it comes to the 50mm lineup from Canon and then we can also step up into their portrait lenses the EF 85mm 1.2 L series version 2, again, eight-rounded blades that give you beautiful background blur and that soft bokeh effect. Now, they still have their tried-and-true, this guy’s been around for quite a while, this is their EF 85 f 1.8 usm, this lens is considerably more economical and lighter weight than it’s big brother in the 1.2 and again being an EF mount lens this will work on both your crop sensor camera, like your 7Ds your EOS, your Rebels, your 80Ds and of course meant for the full frame factor like your 5D Mark IVs your 6Ds, your 1DX Mark IIs and so forth. This guy also has eight aperture blades, they’re just not rounded like it is with the 1.2 and plus that beautiful 1.2 f-stop gives you a little bit more advantage when it comes to blurring out your background, but again, the 1.8 is not a slouch, I’ll show you some images, they will be posted up in the video so you can see the difference between both of these lenses being worked with a crop sensor and a full-frame camera. So now you’ll be able to figure out which route you want to go to when you want to be able to work with a prime Canon lens to get that incredible bokeh effect. Happy shooting!
