Excerpt: I use it for a lot of still shots on my 6D and 5D mIII It is a fantastic lens but for video you really have to go with IS lenses for handheld. Although I use monopods just the extra security of IS helps a lot.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Great Lens amazing picture quality but very heavy in weight

Summary: This is an awesome lens 35mm focal lengths are the standards standard. Great portrait lens. To keep on camera all the time is challenging with weight of this 35mm lens. If you can purchase in the ball park of $900 you should be overall satisfied with this L series glass!
Excerpt: There's not much I can say or add that hasn't already been addressed. This lens has lived up to its reviews and reputation. Beautiful color, sharpness and bokeh-- also really fast. Used it to shoot a wedding and the colors just popped. Only wish it were cheaper and sealed.
Excerpt: After more than a year with this, and countless images, it was stolen. With the insurance money I had no hesitation replacing it. Wide open it's sharp and the bokeh is beautiful. Great lens for low light indoors. I don't shoot weddings, but if I did I'd have to use this lens. It's great for boudoir/glamour using natural light. Lens distortion is minimal when the subject is close, and easily corrected in software.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This is a really lovely piece of glass. Just might be my favorite lens to use on a APS-c crop sensored body (roughly 55mm there) I like the look of this setup over shooting with the 50 1.4 on a full frame body.It's the most "cinematic" looking lens to me with lovely bokeh. So much so that I thought there may be more blades in the diaphram construction, similar to a cine lens. But no, it's constructed of 8 blades as most of the nicer Canon lenses are.It's very sharp too.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
Summary: seems like a nice lens just the wrong one for my canon rebel t3i rebel 1080p, doesn't fit. quality looks great for the amour of money spent. just got to figure out to return this thing and get one for my camera. if only they listed what canon produts it doesn't support, buti think that was my fault not theres. the only down side is the mircro lens very difficult to unscrew for the wide angle, feels very easy to strip.
Excerpt: This was a good lens like all the others are saying. It is extremely sharp and has accurate auto focus. My beef with the lens was that it was too wide for my taste. Sending it back for the 50L was the best decision I could have made.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
