Canon EF 50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro

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

Pros: tact sharp, cheap
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!
