Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM

Review Date: Jun 29, 2010 Recommend? no | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 6 

Pros: Good enough optical quality Better than EF 50/1.8 II plastics fantastics
Mechanics to fragile Much plastics

Many users have a defective focussing unit, should be no problem as long one use a bajonett mount hood all the time.
Some have damaged the focussing unit when they transport the lens with extended tube (not infinity focus). Use of filters could probably damage the AF too.

Since I have cnverted a Minolta Rokkor my copy of the EF 50/1.4 is only a backup, or is few cases I nees AF.
