Yongnuo YN 50mm f / 1.8 II

Yongnuo launches the new version of the “cinquantino“, already available on ebay with Canon attack at a price of 74 dollars.  The new Yongnuo YN 50 1.8 II can already be ordered on ebay at a price of $ 74.99, at the moment only with Canon attack. Many of the constructive and aesthetic / functional characteristics make it similar to the 60mm macro we have already talked about: metal bayonet, improvement of the quality of the materials used, possibility of updating the firmware directly through the camera and 7-blade diaphragm.

Optically we have an improvement in the treatment of lenses aimed at a better behavior against the light and the reduction of flare and phantom effect. The minimum focusing distance has been reduced to 0.35m and it is possible to switch between automatic and manual focusing; in the latter it is useful to use the distance scale on the barrel.

Here are the main features:

Optical construction: 6 elements in 5 groups

7-blade diaphragm

Minimum opening: f / 22

Minimum focusing distance: 0.35m

Filter diameter: 58mm

Weight: 162 grams
