    "Love it...Great !!...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....It might be a little lacking for pros or very experienced amateur photographers, but if you're still a relatively casual photographer like myself, this is a huge step up from the kit lens, and combined with the 50mm 1.8 and a decent zoom lens, it's a great option to get a nice range of focal lengths covered."

    "Good lens..........I would recommend this lens if you are going to use it enough for it to pay for itself....This is a GREAT lens, even at 11 pounds provided you have a tripod or if you get the lens with built in image stabilization....Otherwise, just stick with a good 100-300 lens and keep your costs down, but results high."

    "I loved...Love it...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!...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....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"

    "Love it...Love it!...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....As a novice / intermediate photographer, I wanted to try out another prime lens other than my 50mm f/1.4, but I didn't know which one to get so of course I began researching and found that a lot of reviewers highly recommended the 40mm pancake lens."

    "Very Nice...Fast glass...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...Not bad!...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....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 )"
