With better I mean that its better overall, in all aspects. Its sharp and optically very good at all apertures (distortion, CA etc). AF performance is also very nice, accurate, fast enough, quiet. Build quality is very good too. Its a great value. The 50mm f1.4 I use only when I need f2. Its optically very good above that but the AF is inconsistent, needs an update asap! I also use the 2.5 macro quite a bit but at f8. At f2.5 its not that good, has some CA and its not that sharp. That changes at f5.6-f11 where it...Show more →
Thanks for the insights. Like I said, I think it is a great lens. But since it is a 2.8 lens, I am in doubt wether it is a suitable addition for still photography only. I mean, compared to all the other fast primes Canon is making (L and non-L). Fortunately Canon has kept it's price relatively low and gave the lens good IQ. It is small too, but that is of little concern to me. But besides that, I am really curious how it will work with video AF compatible bodies.
