Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II

ef50mmf_18_1_
Review Date: Nov 29, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $69.95 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Price, Sharpness (f/2.4 onwards), weights nothing.
Cons:
Plastic mount, but what do you expect for $70!

There are better lenses than this, but all of them cost five times more at least. At this price it is a 'must try' before getting anything else, because if it does the job for you, you will have saved a buck.

Makes a good portrait lens on 1.6x crop cameras.

Wish Canon made a mark 3, exactly the same but with a metal mount and a slightly better focusing ring.
