Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II

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 love that lens as well, it's the first I ever bought and still stands strong. As you say, I'm 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.

Magic lens, how all the lenses must be: light, sharp, wide aperture, and.. of course cheap! ;-)

I've got one too and it's an awesome lens. One of the first ones I bought two years ago and still going strong!

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