    Shoot above f/2.2 for best results

    I love this lens and recommend it for professionals and casual shooters both. I shoot a lot of weddings and this year I decided to use primes over zooms for my wedding work and I haven't looked back. I got this lens at Best Buy in Yonkers, NY and I recommend this Canon 50mm f1.4 over the f/1.8 version. Faster and better bokeh. The 1.4 is also built better than the 1.8 version and is the better alternative if you don't have the Cheddar Chee$e for fork over for the King of Kings 50mm f/1.2L. Some reviews on the internet don't give this f/1.4 great ratings because it is soft at f/1.4 to f/2.0. It certainly can be but I don't find that to be the case in all situations. If I'm shooting a portrait of one person and use fill flash, the results from f1.4 to 1.8 are quite excellent. If there's more than 1 person in the frame you want in focus, you should be stopping down anyway, no question about it. This lens is best used at f/2.2 to f/8 IMO.Be aware that this lens doesn't come with a hood, but third party hoods are available for cheap. I always used a lens hood when shooting professionally or personally.

    Must have 50mm prime lens

    I upgraded from the Canon 50mm 1.8 to the 50mm 1.4 in this purchase based on the improved build quality and reputation of the f1.4 lens. While the 'thrifty fifty' f1.8 is a great lens and hard to beat the f1.4 lens is a step up. Hard to describe but the subtle differences in glass, construction of the body and overall build quality but it is an exceptional lens and worth the upgrade. I ordered the lens online and had it delivered to the store... it arrived a day earlier than projected! The Best Buy staff was great and I'm totally pleased with the transaction.
