Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM

ef85mmf_18usm_1_
Review Date: Apr 12, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $325.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Price, size, weight, IQ, build
Cons:
None

I bought this before I could afford the 85L and I still use it, though for different things. It's very fast and the IQ is great, so for sports or studio use, it's awesome. The difference between 1.2 and 1.8 is subjective, but for the price, you can't afford to not have this in your bag. If you're choosing between the 50 1.4 and the 100 f/2, I'd get this one in a heartbeat.

 
Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM

Review Date: Apr 12, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $300.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Price, size
Cons:
IQ at 1.4, build quality, AF speed and noise

Bought this for low light usage, ended up getting the 50L instead. This one is just too plasticky and slow to focus, even on a 1-series. Great bang for the buck, though.

 
Canon Speedlite 580EX II

Review Date: Apr 12, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $350.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Power, PC sync, ease of use, quiet
Cons:
Price, no dedicated master/slave switch like the MK1, metal hot shoe can tear off the camera's.

Very reliable flash. Much more versatile than the 430EX.
