Canon EF 50mm f1.8 mark II

Canon lens EF 50mm f1.8 mark II is made in Malaysia. It is a pride of Malaysia

At just RM300, or less than US$90, Canon EF 50mm f1.8 produces surprisingly good image quality. I shot the pictures of Evon and Sara exclusively with this lens. Some Hong Kong photographers have dubbed it “Canon’s conscience” (良心之作)

It is, of course, not without flaws. First, focus is hit-or-miss. Second, bokeh can be better. But at this price, what can I complain???

Here is a picture taken with this lens…
