Canon EF 50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro

ef_50_25c_1_
Review Date: Dec 14, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $180.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp!!! Built-in hood, great build quality
Cons:
Not USM (slow and noisy AF motor) hence no FTM

This lens is my only prime (currently), and it gives me truly sharp and contrast pictures with my Canon 10D, even wide open at f/2.5. Bokeh is great! For indoor, it has to be coupled with decent flash to get good result.
Working distance has not been a problem for me.
Build quality is just great, compared to my other consumer zoom lenses.
This lens seems to retain its value pretty well. So grab a copy for yourself to try it! If you don't like it, most likely you can sell it back at a very good price.
