I've just bought the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II.

Can't believe the quality you get back from a lens under EUR 100,00 !!

Maybe the big professionals recommend an other (more expensive) lens. But for people like me, who want to try something new with a lens and don't want to spend too much money, this lens is perfect!

Just made some test shots, and I love it.

I'm going to Portugal for vacation tomorrow, then I'm really going to use it to shoot some photos for DT.

Anyone else has this lens (and lovin' it) ? :)

I bought this lens a couple of months ago and it is my favorite to shoot with because it is prime (my only one). Cheap and light. I'm lovin' it.

Very good lens, I have it too! The photos look great, and the bokeh it`s even greater!

I've got this lens too and loved it from the day one. The only problem I have with it, or rather to say complain, this lens suffers from chromatic aberration when I shoot contrasty images. For stock photography it's a nuisance 'cos you have to remove it.

But apart from that the lens is really good, sharp and as was mentioned above, it's very light and convenient to work with.

I love it too, sharpness, aperture and plus, plus, plus, it practically transforms my T2i into an even more compact DLSR!
