  • Excellent Everything Lens

  • November 28, 2014
  • By: Shawn

From dimly lit clubs to a day a the beach, wide open, stopped down or high ISO for that matter the 50mm f/1.4 never ceases to amaze me. A far superior build to the plastic fantastic f/1.8 I can't even recall the last time I took my 50 f/1.4 off my DSLR. Offering tact sharp images and creamy bokeh, if your looking for a fast, easy to travel, everything type lens the 50mm f/1.4 wont disappoint.

  • Great little lens

  • August 01, 2012
  • By: Brett

This lens is light and fast. Autofocus is instantaneous and accurate. A great walking around lens if you want to keep it light and aren't sure what the lighting is going to be like. In my opinion there is no need to get the 50 f1.2L even if you have money to burn.

  • Great value

  • January 30, 2012
  • By: Lisa

I bought this lens last year and it stays on my camera 80% of the time because it is light, small, sharp and fast. I love using this lens for portraits, especially when I am working in natural lighting because at f/1.4 I can take beautiful photos in low light. I recommend this lens for beginner photographers because the great depth of field and bokeh it produces. I use this on a Canon 5D Mark II and when traveling, the lens is small enough to stay on my camera and I can pop both the lens and camera into my purse. It is very light, which also makes it a great lens to travel with. The image quality and colour and contrast that this lens produces is just beautiful. For the relatively affordable price, you cannot go wrong.

  • Great mid range prime

  • December 19, 2011
  • By: toma

After reading several lens reviews I bought this lens as well as the 85mm USM from canon, to use on my T3i. I am definitely happy to have spent the money on this f1.4 lens over canon's f1.8. Build quality is excellent, the focus ring requires a full turn to get to infinity which is nice - very quiet lens with auto focus on. This lens makes for a great portrait lens - keeping in mind that the crop factor of 1.6 makes it closer to an 85mm equivalent. Very nice low light performance, with lovely shallow depth of field - though it can have somewhat soft focus under the right circumstances. Overall a definite must have for canon users not willing to spend on the 50mm 1.2.

Inexpensive and when you open it up, you get such great portraits. The depth of field is why I bought this, but didn't have the money for a 1.2L. I am very happy with it. Mostly plastic construction with a metal mount which was better than I expected for the price. It focuses quick and accurate every time. I gave it 4 out of 5 and I would easily recommend it to someone interested in buying their first prime lens. Personally I feel this makes the 1.2L a waste of money at 4 or 5 times more the cost. If you plan to use it outside wide open, you may need an "ND" filter. It lets light in like nothing.

  • First "Good" Lens is worth every penny...

  • March 29, 2012
  • By: Rick

Well, I purchased my first DSLR about 5 months ago and finally bought my first "Good" lens about. The staff at the Vaughan store were very helpful and did not pressure me into buying the best. They listened to me and provided several options. I compared several 50MM lenses however came to a decision on the Canon EF 50MM/1.4 USM. Simply holding it in your hands you can feel the difference in housing and assembly. I suggest this lens if looking for a good portrait lens. It worth the extra money then the 50MM/1.8.

  • Good if you need the improved focus and build quality

  • August 06, 2012
  • By: Nathan

I will admit that I am on the fence regarding this lens. I love shooting with 50 mm prime lenses, and this lens is a good compromise between price and performance. The image quality is excellent stopped down, but wide open I find it can be disappointing. I bought this lens to be used wide open, but often find myself stopping down to improve sharpness and prevent color artifacts - usually in very high contrast lighting situations. The lens is much better behaved in even lighting. Ultimately I think what you really should consider if you look at this or the 50mm 1.8 is the improved build quality, full time manual focus, and improved auto-focus. This lens is worth the upgrade if it is for the right reasons.
