Canon EF 50mm f/1.8

3029ef_50_18_1_
Review Date: Dec 14, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

Pros: Cheap, Light
Cons:
Soft up to F2,5 - Autofocus not always spot-on

I bought it out of curiosity, paid around 95 so no much risk here.
I love it. I thought I would stay mostly with my 17-40L on my 30D but as it turns out the lens I use now mostly is the 500mm 1,8. Alone the fact that you can get very decent pictures out of a 95 Euro plastic lense is fascinating. And really the pictures are great. I use it mostly at F2,5. Everything above and I might as well use the 17-40L... So highly recommendable.
Check out my Hoempage were I posted a few sample shots (as well as many in the gallery)
