Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 AF speed and noise test

In this video, I do a demonstration of the AF speed and noise of the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 lens on a T2i camera.

This lens has the old-fashioned AF systems, and is not ultra fast, though not so bad either. It does make a bit of noise, so if you’re trying to be discreet at a wedding, this is probably not the best lens for you.
