Canon EF 50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro

ef_50_25c_1_
Review Date: Jun 26, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $160.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: tact sharp, cheap
Cons:
noisy AF, slow at low light, color not as saturated as L, but hey this is not an L!

Bought this lens used from ebay for only about $160 with shipping. Used it to shoot my kid, and some general macro (non-life size) shots.
So far the sharpness is comparable to the Carl Zeiss lenses I own, however the color rendition and saturation is a little wash out compared to the CZ lenses and L lenses. Buy hey this is only a $160 lens and the sharpness just blows me away.
Definitely value for money, and a keeper!
