This is probably the only lense that runs under $100, which is something even amateurs can't pass up. If you're looking to buy your first lense aside from your standard kit lense, this is a no brainer. It's great for portrait shots as well as everyday use, but it shouldn't be your main lense. The build quality is top notch as it is produced from canon, and it has a quick focus which is always a plus. The big downside is for people who are used to using a zoom lense, because you're limited to only 50mm shots. It might be difficult to find the right angles and distances at first, but for $80? The price is right, despite any of its shortcomings.

Considering the price, it's really a nice lens. You can get the blurry background effect easily and take some decent pictures when the lighting of surround is not so good. When using aperture 2 higher grade, the pictures obviously are sharper. So don't try to use 1.8 if you could avoid use.

An Excellent Lens (Especially for the money)

by Mike on 6/10/2007

This is a great lens, and especially for the money! Pro's call it the "nifty fifty." Very shallow depth of field because of the large 1.8 aperture makes for great focused shots. I tried it out on my new Rebel Xti this weekend at my brother's graduation and was blown away at the pix. And Buy.com had the best prioce I could find. Highly reccomend! Read More

Product Overview

This is the lightest EF lens of all at a mere 4.6oz. Compact and high-performance, standard lens. Its Gaussian optics provide sharp delineation from near to far focusing distances. The color balance is excellent for a standard lens.
