For the sake of helpfulness, I will divide this review into 3 important sections: 1) How I use it: - This lens is a great back-up for me when I need even more lighting and using a zoom lens isn't all that much a priority. - This lens is also my 1st choice when I want the most bokeh possible, especially for portraits. - I use this lens when the lighting situations challenge me. - It's used on my Canon EOS 5D Mark II. 2) What's great about it: - It's the cheapest prime lens I know. - It gets am...View full Review
For the sake of helpfulness, I will divide this review into 3 important sections: 1) How I use it: - This lens is a great back-up for me when I need even more lighting and using a zoom lens isn't all that much a priority. - This lens is also my 1st choice when I want the most bokeh possible, especially for portraits. - I use this lens when the lighting situations challenge me. - It's used on my Canon EOS 5D Mark II. 2) What's great about it: - It's the cheapest prime lens I know. - It gets amazing shots for something so cheap. - Having f/1.8 versus the average 3.5-5.6 on a 18-55mm kit lens is a breather for lighting and for shallow DOF. - It's light and portable. 3) What's not so great about it: - It's not as good as its predecessor, which is a metal mount with a distance meter. - Although it is very lightweight, I do seem to appreciated the weight of the Mark I version of this lens, as the Mark I weighs more than this version with manual, inside its box! - It has a cheap plastic build and is fairly fragile because of that. Overall: I feel like it's a photographer's must-have, unless you're going for a better prime lens. Especially for beginners.

Poor build quality
I liked the photo quality vs. the price of this lense. Unfortunately the quality of the non-optical materials were sacrificed to achieve that price point. I put this lens on my camera once and it never came off again. Canon had to detroy the lens in order to remove it from the camera (and wouldn't honor it as a warranty issue).

This little lense is exceptionally crisp and sharp! Will be using it as my primary "glass".
Is this the highest end 50mm lens you can buy? Nope. Is it one of the best anyway? Yep. I had been wanting to add a new lens to my gear bag for a while and read a lot of reviews of different tiers of 50mms. I decided on this one because, despite the comparatively low price point, it had a ton of really good reviews. I am so glad that I did. Color and clarity are impressive. Focus is sharp, (although out towards infinity it gets just a little softer than I like). Autofocus is spot-on, but not the fastest (I think mostly due to it not being a usm). The body doesn't Feel super quality, but it definitely is well-made. I love it for portraits and nature photography and it is fantastic for low-light situations. I currently have this lens paired with my T2i, and I can't wait to see its potential when I upgrade to a full-frame model. If you are even vaguely considering this lens - go buy one.
I use this lens as my "walk- around lens for long walks -- light weight and simple with sharp, clear pictures. Sorry, cannot think of anything not so great.
This lens is one that works well for taking portraits, or in my case, clients holding fish that they catch. The image quality is great, as one would expect from Canon. It takes a relatively long time to focus when shooting in the AF mode. This is the first lens that I have ever owned that us not a USM lens. Perhaps that is why it takes longer to focus. If that is the reason, then I would recommend that anyone purchasing this lens get real familiar with the creative settings, or get a lens with the USM. You will be frustrated if you don't. Other than that complaint, the picture quality is very good and makes this a very functional lens.
I have an older Canon DSLR body (XS Rebel) and this lens has made a huge difference in the picture quality. Well worth the little investment for huge payoffs when shooting.
When I first purchased my Canon 60D, I ordered the kit with 18-200 zoom lens. This is a perfect all around lens, but not necessarily the best carry around lens. It gets a bit heavy on a strap or even in a backpack if you have much other stuff. So, I added this basic 50mm, Perhaps the best value of all the Canon lenses. It makes my 60D a much better carry around, and it is also better in low light than the 18-200. Nice addition to my slowly growing lens collection.
I own this lens for over a year now. I also own a lot of L lenses so I know a few things about the best glass there is for Canon users. This lens is not very well made, in fact it is in the opposite side of the L lenses. It is all plastic. It is very small and light, it fits in your jacket pocket easily. And then, there is the image quality. That is truly L grade. It is absolutely amazing. Super sharp, fast AF (although noisy). The only downside of this optic is the bokeh. It is not that creamy bokeh you find in other lenses, like the 85 f/1.8. I would recommend this lens to anyone using a Canon camera. It is so cheap and so good, you can't help but own it... Seriously, go out there and buy one...
Price is deceiving.It is a fantastic lens, sharp and fast.
I am new to photography and I was just using the 18-55mm lens and thought that was great. Until I received this lens! It is great for indoor and low light situations. I live in the Pacific Northwest and we hardly ever get light so this has been ideal! my only gripe would be the build quality, could be better. aside from that, its wonderful!
It's not a bad lens, especially considering that it costs just about a C-Note. It looks good and delivers some solid shots. However handle this thing like it was an egg. The first one I had, the front just popped off in my camera bag. The second? A bump on the ground sent it flying in two pieces. It's a good lens, but consider saving your pennies and get the $350 version. It's faster and WAY more robust.
