Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II

ef50mmf_18_1_
Review Date: Apr 28, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $79.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: My copy is extremely sharp throughout aperture range, AF/MF switch is smooth and relatively quiet, light-weight, color and contrast very good, bokeh is superb, focusing is not bad at all as far as speed (it's not like I'm going to be shooting sports with it), and who can beat the price for what you're getting? It needs careful handling but is easily replaceable at this price. My first test shots were of my husband, standing in the shade, no flash & wide open. Very impressive performance as noted above.
Cons:
When I picked up the delivery box, I wondered if anything was in it! It does look and feel like a toy. Very deceiving for what lies inside. My 10D feels unbalanced with it on...probably just not used to the lightness after my other lenses.

The good outweighs the bad by a mile with this lens.
