    Canon 2514A007AA reviews

    EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lens is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 4687.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for the amateur enthusiast! I use this lens for just about everything. This is my go to lens. Day shooting, night shooting, outdoors, indoors. The wide aperture is really good, and you can get some clean bokeh. What I don't like about this lens is that the auto-focus isn't great. Also this lens is really poorly made. I recently dropped mine from about 2-3 feet off the ground, and it cracked in half. Be very careful with this lens. If you're a noob photographer, looking to get some really good shots, but don't have lots of money, get this lens. If you're a bit more experienced, and have/are willing to pay more money, get something like the 50 1.4

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent step up from the Kit Lens The shallow depth of field will amaze you. I use it mainly for Food Photography and sometimes for People Photography. Wide aperture makes hand holding possible in low lights without bumping up the ISO. Now I am free to move around the table and take a shot without Tripod. The only issue, I faced is, since I was used to IS (Image Stabilization) feature during hand-holding and this lens is not having it, I feel the difference in some shots, wherein when I was not holding too steady, full sharpness was missing. (Let me re-iterate - this issue is only when I was not holding it steady). A beautiful addition to my bag and the Go To lens for my indoor photography.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT VALUE FOR PRICE!!! I love this lens!! This is a great lens for a new photographer, though I personally know some pros that swear by it! If you are looking for the background to be out of focus, this is the perfect aperature to achieve this result. ... I had absolutely no issues with it. It is a great value for the price, and if you have low lighting in your home like we do, it is the most affordable, good quality lens that you can get. It is very easy to use, light weight, and the result is pristine, quality images. It is the primary lens that I use for this reason. The best part is that my family can work it, so I can actually get it some shots! Thanks B&H!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality! I am new to using a fixed lens and have fallen in love! I was trying to decide between the more expensive fixed 50 mm lens by Canon and this one and am so glad I chose this one. I wasn't looking for anything fancy and was interested in a lens that would be good for some close-up portraits and food photography and am extremely satisfied. The large aperture is great for selective focus. It is not a heavy lens, which is great on my hands/arms considering I usually haul around a longer heavier lens. If looking for an inexpensive fixed lens, I recommend this one, it's been great so far!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the money I use this lens both for photos and videos on a Rebel T3. While most people complain about the focusing ring being too small and declare it unusable, I have used it successfully to manually focus. I would not, unlike some reviews, render manual focusing on this lens impossible, but instead as slightly tricky and annoying. It's not as luxurious and you must learn to get the hang of it. The image quality is extremely sharp and the depth of field at the f/1.8 stop provides for fantastic photos. The lens is very cheap, but I do not feel that the plastic mount or body will break. As long as you take care of this lens, it will be fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens for $ If you are looking for a prime lens but don't know if 50mm is good for your cropped sensor DSLR, buy this lens first. IF you are between 50mm 1.4 and this one especially. I learnt that 50mm prime is not for me, but it is very good to have a fast lens for $ even though the results are soft at f1.8 and 2.0. It is pretty good after f2.2. You will either spend $400-500 for a decent 50mm prime, or just buy this one and get good results at f2.2. You will either boost iso with a f4+ zoom lens, or pay a lot for a decent fast lens, or get this one.10% of the time it is not focusing in low light, but not too bad.5 star is for the price/performance.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recomm. excellent standard lens. This is a very affordable standard lens with sharp image quality. The moment I got this lens, I try to take a portrait of my little daughter. It turns out that I can clearly see every single tiny hair on her face and when the image was zoomed in enough, I can see myself image reflection in her eyes. Very happy with the image quality.The only drawback is the relatively slow autofocusing motor. Not great for taking sport pictures. Due to the shallow depth of view at f1.8, the focusing under AF mode tend to miss the point easily and sometimes I have to use manual focusing mode. Anyhow, for the relatively low price, I think it is worth it....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Portrait Lens for the Price! The Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II is a MUST-HAVE if you love expressive, dramatic portraits with blurry backgrounds and bokeh. If you have shopped for a lens like this, you know it isn't a zoom lens, and that's just fine. This isn't a Swiss Army knife lens by any stretch. It isn't good for everything (zooming, for instance), but when you are shooting people and objects that are between about 2 and 15 feet from the camera, it is just magical. If you are comparing this with the Canon 50mm f/1.4, this lens is nearly the same for about 1/3 of the price. I have worked with the f/1.4, and I haven't yet found any situation the f/1.8 can't handle just as well.
