    "Great lense...Canon's Best Macro Lens...this is a very good len and very happy to get this as I can now get better photos of small creators than I could before and the photos are very sharp...Theoretically, with a higher number of blades, it would allow more natural blurs, but I can say I've never noticed a problem in my photographs."

    "Love it...Nice but...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....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."
