Canon EF 50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro

ef_50_25c_1_
Review Date: Mar 5, 2015 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Very sharp and contrasty from f/5.6 when used as regular 50. Very sharp through all apertures in macro range.
Cons:
When used as a regular 50 edges dissapoint at f/2.5-4.0

Images are sharp from corner to corner starting from f/8.0.
F/5.6 is not bad although we can see little softness not only in the corners but also in the edges.
At f/2.5 softness of the edges is very visible.

When I use this lens in the studio shooting full body shots I have to close it to f/8.0 or at least to f/5.6.
Contrast is very high through all the f/stops.

In my opinion this lens performs best in macro range unless stopped down.

Few photos I have made with this lens:

Review Date: Mar 5, 2015 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 7 

 
Pros: Good contrast and color.
Cons:
Needs to be stopped down for sharp landscape photos.

Full frame sharpness starts from f 8/11 or you have to front foucus manually to get sharp corners

On larger apertures good for shooting from short distance when the edge softness is not important.

Review Date: Mar 3, 2015 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 7 

 
Pros: good contrast and color, fast
Cons:
soft wide open when focusing near infinity

Very good lens when stopped down to f/5.6, very usable at f/2.8.
At close distance possible to work at f/1.8.
Few sample photos
