    "Price is a steal...The price is great...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"

    "I would recommend this lens if you are going to use it enough for it to pay for itself...Wonderful for sporting events and wildlife photography, and provides good crisp pictures...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"

    "My wife loves it...A must have lens...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"

    "I love this lens...Easy to use lens...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...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"

    "I love this lens...What a nice lens...After testing the lens for couple of weeks on my Canon 5D MkIV camera, all I can say that it's definitely a keeper...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"

    "This 85 is great...The lens is great...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 )"
