There are two things that any new Canon SLR owner should acquire as a bare minimum along with their new camera if they are at all serious about learning creative photography and making pleasing images, no matter how restricted their budget or how small their bag. One of them is the 220EX flash, and the other is this 50mm f/1.8 prime. They are both so small, light, inexpensive, and just downright useful that any photographer can carry them in any situation. Let's get something straight here: this lens is made of cheap plastic, it's got a noisy autofocus motor from the '80s, and the manual focus action stinks. But it also has several very good arguments in its favor (listed in the "pros" part of this review). The strongest point is that the optics are very close to being as good as its f/1.4 USM cousin (at 3x lower cost). The build quality is really not that bad, and the autofocus could not be called slow. The wide aperture is excellent for low-light and portrait work: two areas in which zoom lenses (even professional "L" zooms) are not very useful, and the narrow-aperture kit lens on your Rebel absolutely falls flat on its face. This is Canon's lightest lens, and I find using it on a Rebel camera is an absolutely liberating experience after dragging around a bunch of heavy zooms & a bigger body. "It's a crime to go without a prime". The EF 85mm f/1.8 USM lens is the best bargain of the non-L lenses (see my other review on it), but if you can't afford the 85, get the 50mm f/1.8 (personally, I have both :-). New SLR users are often put off by non-zoom lenses, but the whole point of having an interchangable-lens camera is being able to use the right tool for the job. Seriously, if you're going to stick with the kit lens for the rest of your life, do yourself a favor & get a RAW-enabled compact instead!

Used this lens on my 40D, and after a few uses, it got stuck on the camera body and would not come off. This was in the beginning of my Yosemite vacation, when I really wanted to use my 17-40L for landscapes. I read about this common problem online, this has happened to a few others others. I learned that since the mount on this lens is plastic instead of metal, I could break the lens off, probably without damage to my 40D. I did just that, twisted HARD and broke the lens right off. Then I was able to use my other lenses. Not sure why this got stuck on my body - probably cheap construction or shoddy tolerances. I will not re-buy this lens. Instead, I'll get the 50mm f/1.4

Best 50mm for the money

By 

from Colorado

Comments about Canon EF Standard And Medium Telephoto Lens:

Is this the highest end 50mm lens you can buy? Nope. Is it one of the best anyway? Yep. I had been wanting to add a new lens to my gear bag for a while and read a lot of reviews of different tiers of 50mms. I decided on this one because, despite the comparatively low price point, it had a ton of really good reviews. I am so glad that I did. Color and clarity are impressive. Focus is sharp, (although out towards infinity it gets just a little softer than I like). Autofocus is spot-on, but not the fastest (I think mostly due to it not being a usm). The body doesn't Feel super quality, but it definitely is well-made. I love it for portraits and nature photography and it is fantastic for low-light situations. I currently have this lens paired with my T2i, and I can't wait to see its potential when I upgrade to a full-frame model. If you are even vaguely considering this lens - go buy one.

Very clear pictures

By 

from Florence, WI

Comments about Canon EF Standard And Medium Telephoto 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

Comments about Canon EF Standard And Medium Telephoto 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 

from Southern Arizona

Comments about Canon EF Standard And Medium Telephoto 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 

from Athens

Comments about Canon EF Standard And Medium Telephoto 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 

from Portland, OR

Comments about Canon EF Standard And Medium Telephoto 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 

from Phoenix, AZ

Comments about Canon EF Standard And Medium Telephoto Lens:

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).
