Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens | $100 | Amazon

Burgeoning photographers—throw out your kit lens and pick up this $100 Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens.


This lens offers the best dollar-per-dollar value in photography, bar none. It stops all the way down to f/1.8, letting in plenty of light and blurring backgrounds for awesome portraits.

All budget-conscious photogs and students out there should own this lens. This second-generation model offers a quieter autofocus than its predecessor and creates equally sharp images. If you have a Canon EF camera, this is a no-brainer.
