5 out of 5 eggsCanon EF 50mm f/1.8

Pros: Ok for it's low price, this is a great lens. Takes good clear pictures up close and just snapshots around the house. Works good for still life photos and portraits.

Cons: None that I can see so far, and I am putting it through the paces here.

Other Thoughts: With a f/1.8 it is great in low light situations. This would be a great lens for anyone wanting to get into photography on a budget and looking to take some great pictures and learn on. Don't forget to order a UV filter.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Portraiture and Great Bokeh

Pros: This is a great lens for the price. This lens does exactly what it was intended for. An excellent addition to any photographer's lens arsenal. The low aperture (f/1.8) allows for beautiful bokeh in the background. This lens is a blackhole for light and sucks it up. Construction is solid as expected from Canon.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGreat lens for a great price!

Pros: Great picture quality, light weight, nice build quality, cheap

Cons: Little bit slow when focusing, and kinda loud but I don't mind

Other Thoughts: This lens is a very good beginner portrait lens and a definate step up from the kit lens that my T3i came with. It has much better appriture so you can get those blurred backgrounds and focus on one object when everything else is blurred. I highly reccomend this lens.

5 out of 5 eggsSome of you here need to learn and not complain

Pros: This lens is very sharp and very fast for the price. Also light weight. And a cheap way for a DSLR owner to try out prime lenses

Cons: At this price, there's really nothing to complain about. The AF is somewhat slow in low light, but come on. It's a great lens

Other Thoughts: For those of you giving this 1 egg because of the fact that it is so long, or some of you saying it's too close. It's a 50mm prime lens. It doesn't zoom out. It wasn't intended to be a "wide-angle" lens either. You're giving a bad review for your lack of knowledge. That's unfair. Most likely you have 1.6x crop bodies which makes this feel like an 80mm lens. And, you even have a "kit" lens that goes to 55mm. Why don't you set your Kit lens at 50mm and leave it there and see what you think? These 1 egg reviews like this should be deleted.

5 out of 5 eggsLOVE LOVE LOVE

Pros: This is the best lens I have ever owned for taking Portrait style photos. You can not go wrong with this lens. There is a reason it is 5 eggs. It is a speedy little thing with beautiful image capability.

Cons: not a one

5 out of 5 eggsGreat beginners lense

Pros: Great lens for the money. Sharp with good bokeh. Unlike the other reviews, autofocus was pretty fast although its doesn't work the best in an even slightly busy background. You should learn how to do manual anyway.

Cons: Ring does drag a little when on manual.

Other Thoughts: Buy it! I have learned a lot since ditching the kit lenses and using this.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent photos

Pros: The photos you get out of this lens are of an excellent quality relative to the price your paying. Makes low light shooting no problem at all.

Cons: The one issue I have is that the AF fails to focus at time, seaking around the same spot but never figuring it out. This has happened in high contrast settings as often as low contrast when using f1.8. Not worth more than an egg, however.

Other Thoughts: While the lens is light wieght, I would in no way say it feals "cheap". It's construction will work just fine, especially if you don't plan on throwing it against any walls.

5 out of 5 eggsCheap and Excellent

Pros: Lightweight, inexpensive, excellent sharpness, low chromatic aberration, reasonable flare control, accurate focus and pretty much distortion free.

Cons: Not robustly built, auto-focus is noisy and a little slow, manual focus ring is poor. Bokeh isn't that great, but it is a 5-petal diaphragm to keep costs down. It's not a zoom, but then again learning how to use a fixed focal length prime is a good way to improve your camera technique.

Other Thoughts: I've owned this lens for five years. In that time I've moved from a Rebel XT to a 5D Mark II, and have accumulated L series lenses 15 times or more expensive than this little lightweight lens. Indeed, I have bought lens filters that are more expensive than this unit.

Yet I still use it. Why? Because it is extremely lightweight and because the image quality is excellent. This is fine, sharp lens that produces images as good as those from far more expensive lenses. If there is anything that might be called an unobtrusive lens for a DSLR, this is it, and that can be useful when you don't want to look like an obvious photographer. It's an excellent starter lens and will give you much better image quality than any lens kit zoom unless you happen to stretch to the 24-105mm f/4.0 L zoom, and even then it has an edge at 50mm.
