The Canon 50mm 1.8 STM is an extremely popular lens, primarily because of its introduction-to-prime-wide aperture and good stopped-down image quality at a very low price.
For many people, this lens is an introduction to prime lens image quality and part of that introduction is to the strong background blur that wide aperture prime lenses are generally capable of. At a short focus distance, the widest apertures of this lens can indeed create a strong background blur.
Considering the low price, this lens performs very well.
