    "Love it...Worth it...It's a cheaper lens in regards to both part quality and price aspects but I feel as though Canon has not skimped on the important parts of the lens such as the glass....Since these cameras have the cropped sensor, the 50mm lens acts as if it was an 80mm lens, which is good for portrait work, but is too long a lens for using indoors like a birthday party, or in a museum."

    "Love it...I loved...I received some good advice from a friend regarding a fixed 50mm lens--the F/1.4 on a 50mm lens is what he told me to look for, and the pictures are fantastic (using a Canon EOS Rebel T3I)....They do carry the Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens in-store but for quality, I do recommend this lens in particular because it is a f/1.4, which lets in a lot more light and there is a difference between the f/1.8 and f/1.4 quality."

    "Love it...Love it!...I was in the market for a 3rd zoom lens and completely against a fixed focal length lens...after using this lens...it has become my primary lens and I can't wait to buy a second fixed length lens...It's light enough that you can shoot for quite a while before fatigue sets in, an issue that will rear its head in any situation that goes on a while, like a wedding or a play (and that low-light capability is great for stage work, where a flash annoys literally everyone."

    "Love it...Have fun...For me this lens is useful for candid and street photography, it makes a camera like the 5D very un-obtrusive and non threatening, my professional cameras look like slightly oversized consumer superzooms with this lens on them and people go back to acting naturally much more quickly than when a giant white lens is pointed at them....Thought the lens was broken when I couldn't get it to retract and the manual days nothing of this, doing a little research I found that you have to have it in manual focus and make sure the lens is not asleep, hold the shutter half way down and then retract the lens to put on the cap, don't push it from the front!"

    "It's OK...Very Nice...Great for almost any shot that you're willing to hoof around a little bit for; without any focus you'll need to walk a bit to get your framing right, but after all, that's expected with a prime lens ;) IS is REALLY beneficial for low light shots of static objects and really does give you a few more stops worth of hand-held capability....After testing the lens for couple of weeks on my Canon 5D MkIV camera, all I can say that it's definitely a keeper."

    "Love it...love it....This lens is not for the fainthearted but it's undoubtedly the best portrait lens Canon offers (but remember it's not a hobbyists' lens )...Of note - when turning the focus ring manually, the focus ring bobbles a bit (like its not "screwed on tightly" - kind of like the sound of batteries in an old remote control where the end connections have weakened a bit - though tight enough to work, they "bobble around" a bit inside."
