50mm Lens for my Canon Rebel T5
Canon 50mm f/1.8 II Lens
I am looking to purchase a 50mm canon lens for my Rebel (t5) camera. I am afraid to purchase the wrong lens as there are so many to chose from. Can anyone point me in the right direction.
Thanks for asking about what Canon 50mm lens to pair up with your Canon Rebel t5.
It really is a matter of personal choice for you. There are quite a few choices when it comes to picking one of the Canon nifty fifty lenses. There are advantages and disadvantages with all of them.
Best Canon 50mm lens
I currently own a f/1.4 version, but generally I point newbie photographers to the f/1.8 II because it is so affordable and more than fast enough for most photographer's needs.

The best 50mm lens from Canon for you depends on your shooting style and your budget to get one. The price range for the different maximum apertures of the f/1.2, f1.4, f/1.8, and 2.5 macro versions is huge.
