Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II

ef50mmf_18_1_
Review Date: Sep 9, 2011 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $120.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Light, small, sharp, cheap and probably the best lens for the money from Canon
Cons:
Slow and noisy autofocus, plastic body, plastic mount, ugly bokeh balls

I bought this lens because it was so cheap and an f/1.8
Its all plastic so you have to be careful with it if you don't want to break it. The plastic mount scared me at first but if I just take care of the lens it shouldn't brake. The focal length on this lens is great on full frame and also on crop (80mm equivalent).
The lens is very sharp and has a large aperture of f/1,8. The focus is slow and really noisy, so I wouldn't recommend this lens for any sort of action photography.

All in all this lens is great, and for the price you pay it's a must have for any Canon user.

Here are some shots I've taken with this lens:
