    High quality, low weight and low price

    By Journeydog

    from Southern Arizona

    Comments about Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lense:

    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.

    Excellent Lens!!!

    By Doctor

    from Athens

    Comments about Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lense:

    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...

    Amazingly great lens

    By rickymare

    from Portland, OR

    Comments about Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lense:

    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!

    Comments about Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lense:

    Review Guidelines Focus on the product and your individual experience using it: This specific lens got stuck on my brand new EOS camera and rendered it inoperative! I am writing this review to let other people know about this.

I checked online only to find that many more people had the same exact problem. Do not mention competitors or retailers by name: I didn't. Do not mention price: I didn't. Do not include links to other sites: I didn't Product reviewed must be available for purchase in the U.S.: It was purchased in the U.S. Words must have meaning, i.e. no dummy text: Done. Review must originate in U.S.: I am in the U.S. This is the 3rd time i am trying to post a review and they keep deleting it, saying i did not follow the guidelines (basically because i am posting a negative review, so this time i made sure to do this).

    Thrifty Fifty Rather Than Nifty Fifty

    By Boin Loin

    from Ohio

    Comments about Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lense:

    I purchased this lens for my 60D, attracted to the image quality I had read about in reviews and the impressively large aperture for such a small price. For the most part, this lens met my expectations. The image quality it produces is the best I have experienced thus far with my 60D; images have minimal warping and aberration (but some vignetting), and are crisp as the mid-winter air on a sunny day. The biggest letdown with this lens is the build; be sure you're aware it is plastic before purchasing it. Although the plastic build allows for a surprisingly light lens (one of Canon's lightest), it also exudes a sense of cheapness and will make you afraid to do anything other than handle it with great care. As for the aperture, there are few situations that require more than f/1.8 and you'll find it produces some righteous bokeh. Overall, this lens is a slam dunk for the price, but if you're looking for a sturdier build, consider investing in a more expensive lens.

    Great results

    By JAB

    from Fombell Pa.

    Comments about Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lense:

    I bought the 50mm f1.8 II for portraits after seeing the reviews. The results are great so far. The lens looks fairly cheaply made, but the images are sharp and it has great saturation and rich color.

    Great lens that doesn't last.

    By kuhlcrew

    from Wisconsin

    Comments about Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lense:

    I LOVE this lens especially for portraits. But I have purchased 2 of them, going on 3. Both after about 1 1/2 years started saying there was trouble with the connections. It BOTH TIMES ended up in a repair that costs almost as much as a new lens...which is why I keep having to buy them. SO frustrating!

      Comments about Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lense:

      I love this lens and I hate this lens. The images you get with this lens are amazing. But this is NOT military grade design. Handle this lens the way you would an egg and it will work wonders. I made the mistake of putting the lens in my camera bag without a hard cover case for the lens -- bad idea. Apparently there must have been a little jostling of my camera bag while I was walking and the next time I examined the lens it was essentially in 2 pieces. Darn. But I love this lens so I bought another and now keep it in a hard shell case (unless I'm using it) and all is good. BTW as you probably already know, this is NOT a "normal" lens for a crop factor DSLR. It's probably closer to an 80mm lens on a full frame 35mm film camera or full size sensor DSLR i.e. Canon 5D, 6D, 1D X etc. So if you want "to see what your eye sees" on a crop factor DSLR i.e. Canon 7D, 70D, 60D, 50D, Rebel, etc. you want to get a 35mm focal length lens (or zoom your kit lens to about 35mm). So you might be wondering.... What's the easiest way to tell if a Canon EOS camera has a full sized sensor? Well, you can't really tell by how Canon refers to the camera (at least I can't). So the easiest way is to look at Canon's "Estimated Retail Price". As of this writing if it's over $1600 (body only) it's a full sized sensor. Simple.
