Pros: Excellent lens for the price. Very sharp and lightweight,

Cons: A little noisy and slow to focus sometimes. Not enough to take an egg away.

5 out of 5 eggsbest lens in the bag

Pros: I never take this lens off. It is fast enough to catch kids without a flash indoors.

I have bought 2 of these as gifts for friends with newborns.

You won't miss the zoom.

Cons: none.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great lens, especially considering the price. I've had this for months now and it takes excellent, sharp portraits with good bokeh. The thing that made me come back and write this review is it's awesome low-light performance. I took 100+ photos at a dark wedding reception this weekend with NO flash and the lens performed unbelievably well. Of all the pics being posted to the site the bride has set-up, mine are far and away the best thanks to this little beauty. Get it and keep it in your camera bag. For portraits and low light situations, it cannot be beat for for the price.

Cons: Obvious limitations are obvious, but this is a prime lens, so the only way to zoom in or out is with your feet. 50mm on a crop-sensor like mine can be a bit tight indoors; it is the equivalent to 80mm on a full frame. You'll have to back up from your subject more than you think you will. Standard filters will not fit this little guy either (or I am too stupid to figure out how they fit). The mount is all plastic, but what do you expect for this price.

Other Thoughts: If you are a starting hobby photographer with a new Canon camera, this is the cheapest way you are going to get a prime lens that is super sharp and has great low-light performance.

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.
