Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II

ef50mmf_18_1_
Review Date: Dec 10, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $120.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: price, optical quality and sharpness
Cons:
plastic feel construction

At this price, an excellent lens. Very sharp and fast, it was my first buy after getting the 300D with the 18-55 kit lens. The 50/1.8 is a lot better than the kit lens. Very useful for portraits and indoor photography (just limited by its l focal lenght). Recommended!

Pros: price, weight
Cons:
Noisy AF, my copy was quite soft

I bought this lens based on reviews i read. However, after some testing, it seems that this lens is softer than the kit 18-55 (which it should replace) at the same focal lenght. I guess i could have bought a bad copy, or my 18-55 is a good one. All i can say is i'm quite disappointed by the 28/2.8. I also compared the 18-55 to the 50/1.8 and, as expected, this last one was better in every aspect.
