Supports USB-free Firmware Upgrade 

Firmware of the lens can be upgraded through camera instead of using USB port, which not only meets the requirements of firmware upgrade and appearance design, but also avoids the incompatibility problems caused by different computer operating systems.(Note: this function needs to be supported by camera)

F1.8 Bright Aperture

Maximum aperture F1.8,bokeh effect is easily achieved ,which brings you more fun during photographing.

New Mechanical Structure, New Coating Technology

YN50mm F1.8 II has all the product advantages of the last generation. By improving the mechanical structure and coating technology, its focus accuracy, auto-focus speed and light transmittance are increased. Furthermore, it can control backlight ghost and glare.

Durable Metal Mount

YN50mm F1.8 II adopts chrome-plated and high-accuracy metal mount. It’s wearable, corrosion-resistant, and highly consistent with the body of the camera.

0.35m Closest Focusing Distance

Compared with the first generation, the closet focusing distance of YN50mm F1.8 II is shortened to 0.35m.You can get closer to the object for photography and enlarge the object.

Focus Modes: Auto Focus (AF) and Manual Focus (MF)

YN50mm F1.8 II supports auto focus and manual focus. The focus mode can be selected according to practical requirement.

Focus Distance Indicator is convenient for you to estimate the distance and the depth of field.

YN50mm F1.8 II has 7pcs of aperture blades, which helps to take picture of circular defocused spots or helps to stop down and take picture of 14-star effect.

You can purchase the YONGNUO YN50mm F1.8 II via ebay for $74.99.

EF 50 1.8 STM clone?

There is no info about the AF motor used, but I don't think it will be STM-like, since they would use the silend focussing to market the lens.
From what I can tell it is a Mark II with more aperture-blades and a shorter min. focussing distance, as well as different markings on the outside.

I wonder how super the bokeh is.

Seeing as it's identical to the older Yongnuo 50mm lens except for new coatings and new electronics and a very important red ring I imagine the "bokeh effect" to be pretty much identical to the previous one.

The older Yongnuo lens is clearly better than the Canon 50mm 1.8 II (I own both). The seven bladed aperture makes a huge difference.

See: https://petapixel.com/2014/12/27/comparing-optics-40-yongnuo-50mm-f1-8-125-canon-50mm-f1-8-ii/

I haven't compared it to the Canon STM because I haven't tried that one, but I'd imagine the Canon STM is the better lens all round.

So, if closet pictures are your thing, this is the lens for you.  ::)

Even if the quality is just decent, it's nice to see some price pressure on Canon.  Someday we'll get an updated 50mm f/1.4.

I thought i heard somwhere that Yn was just remaking canon lenses whose patent had expired? So they've don 25 f2, 50 1.8, 100 f2 and 85 1/8, and 60mm macro on the way, i'd love them to make a 24 1.4 or 85 1.4 but does anyone know what canon  lenses will have their patents expire next?

Doesn't make any sense because the optical layout of the Yongnuo lenses is unrelated to the Canon ones.

Their 60mm macro is full-frame, unlike the EF-S 60mm macro!

You are talking about the only exception.
All their lenses are canon clones.

No, they are not.

They are imitations, for sure, but not clones, because the optical formula inside each lens is very different to the Canon original (and, at least in the case of the 50mm, superior!)

First Look at the Yongnuo YN 50 Mark II F1.8 for Canon | 永諾 50MM 二代

Yongnuo YN50 VS YN 50 II F1.8 - 永諾 二代 Quick Comparison

Thanks for the links: The 2nd iteration of Yongnuos lens is very promising in terms of IQ (corner sharpness/resolution), noise of AF motor and (at least for me) a distance scale.
Maybe a good "bridge solution" to the EF 1.4 50mm IS ... if it will ever materialize or a solution of another lens manufacturer.
