Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM

ef50mmf_14usm_1_
Review Date: Dec 21, 2006 Recommend? no | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 3 

 
Pros: Small, 1.4, reasonably priced
Cons:
Slow focus, soft wide open.

I bought this to shoot indoor sports in low light. The focus is uselessly slow and inconsistent. I have no confidence in it. It is soft at 1.4, but I bought it to use at 1.4, not 2.0 or 2.8 were I have to boost the iso to get the sharpness.

I always regret using this lens on action sports. The 85 mm 1.8 isn't too bad and my 2.8 Ls are far better.

May be a decent lens, but not at all for what I needed.
