Canon EF 50mm f/1.8

Review Date: Jun 20, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

Pros: Inexpensive, great clarity, very fast and light weight
None that I've found yet

I'm very new to DSLR or any type of SLR for that matter. I recently purchased a Rebel XT and kit lens (used). The Cannon 50mm 1.8 prime was my first lens purchase. I was AMAZED at the clarity, low light operation and quickness of this lens. Granted, as I said, I'm very new so my opinion may not mean squat...lol. But because I'm new, I'm not really able to justify paying $500.00 or more for a lens at this time. This lens is very inexpensive and I get amazing results out of it. I'm sure my results will only get better as I learn!!

Pros: Sharp images, AF and MF are very smooth and accurate, quick lens
I wish it could focus closer.

I'm very new to DSLR or SLR for that matter. This was my first lens purchase for my newly acquired Rebel Xt and kit lens. I'm amazed at the clarity and sharpness when compared to my kit lens set at 50mm. I love it!!
