Canon EF 50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro

ef_50_25c_1_
Review Date: May 9, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $180.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp, well built, nice bokeh
Cons:
loud motor, only 1:2

I am really pleased with this lens. I use it for macro and for a normal lens. It is my first quality lens and love shooting with it. If you don't like the construction of the 50mm 1.8 you should get this lens because it is built well, just as sharp, and is macro. Also, bokeh is just awesome!

Pros: Cheap, light, good reach with digital rebel
Cons:
Soft... very bad from 200-300, slow focus, chromatic aberration

I have only had this lens for two months and I'm already selling it to purchase a F/4 70-200 L. Everything looks soft on my digital rebel. I only recommend this for people who don't care if their photos are sharp. Do yourself a favor and save for a L series lens. However, I did like this lens until I used a L lens one day!
