Best 50mm for the money

By SuzyTBo

from Colorado

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

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.

Very clear pictures

By classiccastoutfit

from Florence, WI

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

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.

Very satisfying purchase

By KGR

from Undisclosed

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

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.

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!
