    Very clear pictures

    By classiccastoutfit

    from Florence, WI

    Comments about Canon® EF 50MM F/1.8 II Lens:

    This lens is one that works well for taking portraits, or in my case, clients holding fish that they catch. The image quality is great, as one would expect from Canon. It takes a relatively long time to focus when shooting in the AF mode. This is the first lens that I have ever owned that us not a USM lens. Perhaps that is why it takes longer to focus. If that is the reason, then I would recommend that anyone purchasing this lens get real familiar with the creative settings, or get a lens with the USM. You will be frustrated if you don't. Other than that complaint, the picture quality is very good and makes this a very functional lens.

    Very satisfying purchase

    By KGR

    Comments about Canon® EF 50MM F/1.8 II Lens:

    I have an older Canon DSLR body (XS Rebel) and this lens has made a huge difference in the picture quality. Well worth the little investment for huge payoffs when shooting.

    High quality, low weight and low price

    By Journeydog

    from Southern Arizona

    Comments about Canon® EF 50MM F/1.8 II Lens:

    When I first purchased my Canon 60D, I ordered the kit with 18-200 zoom lens. This is a perfect all around lens, but not necessarily the best carry around lens. It gets a bit heavy on a strap or even in a backpack if you have much other stuff. So, I added this basic 50mm, Perhaps the best value of all the Canon lenses. It makes my 60D a much better carry around, and it is also better in low light than the 18-200. Nice addition to my slowly growing lens collection.

    Excellent Lens!!!

    By Doctor

    from Athens

    Comments about Canon® EF 50MM F/1.8 II Lens:

    I own this lens for over a year now. I also own a lot of L lenses so I know a few things about the best glass there is for Canon users. This lens is not very well made, in fact it is in the opposite side of the L lenses. It is all plastic. It is very small and light, it fits in your jacket pocket easily. And then, there is the image quality. That is truly L grade. It is absolutely amazing. Super sharp, fast AF (although noisy). The only downside of this optic is the bokeh. It is not that creamy bokeh you find in other lenses, like the 85 f/1.8. I would recommend this lens to anyone using a Canon camera. It is so cheap and so good, you can't help but own it... Seriously, go out there and buy one...

    Amazingly great lens

    By rickymare

    from Portland, OR

    Comments about Canon® EF 50MM F/1.8 II Lens:

    I am new to photography and I was just using the 18-55mm lens and thought that was great. Until I received this lens! It is great for indoor and low light situations. I live in the Pacific Northwest and we hardly ever get light so this has been ideal! my only gripe would be the build quality, could be better. aside from that, its wonderful!

    EF 50mm f/1.8 II

    By AP

    from Phoenix, AZ

    Comments about Canon® EF 50MM F/1.8 II Lens:

    Review Guidelines Focus on the product and your individual experience using it: This specific lens got stuck on my brand new EOS camera and rendered it inoperative! I am writing this review to let other people know about this. Provide details about why you liked or disliked a product: I dislike this lens because it got stuck on my camera the first time i used it. I checked online only to find that many more people had the same exact problem. Do not mention competitors or retailers by name: I didn't. Do not mention price: I didn't. Do not include links to other sites: I didn't Product reviewed must be available for purchase in the U.S.: It was purchased in the U.S. Words must have meaning, i.e. no dummy text: Done. Review must originate in U.S.: I am in the U.S. This is the 3rd time i am trying to post a review and they keep deleting it, saying i did not follow the guidelines (basically because i am posting a negative review, so this time i made sure to do this).

    Thrifty Fifty Rather Than Nifty Fifty

    By Boin Loin

    from Ohio

    Comments about Canon® EF 50MM F/1.8 II Lens:

    I purchased this lens for my 60D, attracted to the image quality I had read about in reviews and the impressively large aperture for such a small price. For the most part, this lens met my expectations. The image quality it produces is the best I have experienced thus far with my 60D; images have minimal warping and aberration (but some vignetting), and are crisp as the mid-winter air on a sunny day. The biggest letdown with this lens is the build; be sure you're aware it is plastic before purchasing it. Although the plastic build allows for a surprisingly light lens (one of Canon's lightest), it also exudes a sense of cheapness and will make you afraid to do anything other than handle it with great care. As for the aperture, there are few situations that require more than f/1.8 and you'll find it produces some righteous bokeh. Overall, this lens is a slam dunk for the price, but if you're looking for a sturdier build, consider investing in a more expensive lens.

    Great results

    By JAB

    from Fombell Pa.

    Comments about Canon® EF 50MM F/1.8 II Lens:

    I bought the 50mm f1.8 II for portraits after seeing the reviews. The results are great so far. The lens looks fairly cheaply made, but the images are sharp and it has great saturation and rich color.

    Great lens that doesn't last.

    By kuhlcrew

    from Wisconsin

    Comments about Canon® EF 50MM F/1.8 II Lens:

    I LOVE this lens especially for portraits. But I have purchased 2 of them, going on 3. Both after about 1 1/2 years started saying there was trouble with the connections. It BOTH TIMES ended up in a repair that costs almost as much as a new lens...which is why I keep having to buy them. SO frustrating!
