50mm f/1.8 STM Lens

I had $25 in loyalty credits at Unique Photo from when I traded in a bunch of gear for my second EOS RP body and some accessories. Of course, that can't just sit there. I decided to pick up a copy of Canon's cheapest, but far from its worst, lens, the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM. 

This is the third copy of this lens I have owned. What happened with the other two is that I was selling a camera body and threw in the lens to make the deal more attractive. At $125 new, you can do that with this lens.

This morning was my first time using the lens. Without image stabilization, hand held bracketing is more of a challenge but the software seems to deal with it nicely. Here are some results.
