Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II

ef50mmf_18_1_
Review Date: Apr 3, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Very sharp, excellent colour rendition, incredibly cheap, produces great photos, f1.8.
Cons:
Focus ring feels a bit flimsy, sometimes hunts for focus.

This is the first lens I have bought for my 350D aside from the kit lens that came with the body. The pictures taken with this lens are much sharper, and reproduce colours much better, than the kit lens.

It really is a steal for the price. Obviously the build quality isn't particularly fantastic, but that isn't really important to me. Whats important is that it produces really, really great pictures when I use it properly. For a begginer like myself, a lens like this is invaluable.

I wouldn't hesitate in recommending it. At this price you really can't go wrong.
