Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II

ef50mmf_18_1_
Review Date: Jul 12, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $85.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Very lightweight, SHARP pictures, I can really use the f/1.8 indoors
Cons:
Very lightweight, kinda feels cheap- Uhh, I guess that's the best I can come up with

What a great entry into the world of prime lens! I would have never imagined that I would appreciate such a lens, but to have the barrier to entry so low, what do you have to lose??? This is a great lens for shooting candids of my infant daughter and using the available light.

A side benefit is that when I/or my wife wants to travel VERY light, this has quite a usable focal distance with zero weight penalty. I would recommend everyone trying this or the big brother f/1.4 version. I would be surprised if you are disappointed.
