  • Excerpt: It's not a bad lens, especially considering that it costs just about a C-Note. It looks good and delivers some solid shots. However handle this thing like it was an egg. The first one I had, the front just popped off in my camera bag. The second? A bump on the ground sent it flying in two pieces.It's a good lens, but consider saving your pennies and get the $350 version. It's faster and WAY more robust.
  • Pros: cheap, Lightweight
  • Cons: Cheap plastic, Flimsy, Weak Casing

Great lens that doesn't last.

  • Conclusion: 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!

Nice Lens but Too Delicate

  • Excerpt: I bought one of these and got great shots from it. Had no problems. One day it rolled out of my camera bag and tapped the ground very lightly and the lens and the body separated. I Googled this lens after the fact only to find that this exact same thing has happened to many others. Just FYI should you decide to buy this lens.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Weak Casing

  • Excerpt: I wanted this lens to work really bad. Going on a trip to Europe in a month. Wanted to use this lens for museums and low light situation. It does a good job in low light situations. Everyone is raving about this lens. I guess its the price. Great for a Canon lens. The construction is cheap, It would be for the selling price. The big problem I have with this lens is that the auto Focus is very unstable. It takes for ever to focus in.
  • Pros: Good in low light, Good Price, Lightweight, Very Light
  • Cons: Auto focus unstable, Blurry Focus, Slow Focus, Weak Casing

NEVER TAKE THIS INTO A MOSH PIT!!!

  • Excerpt: This was the first lens I purchased. At the time when I was using a Canon 40D and it proved to be a very good lens. It is a great lens as far as studio work goes and sharpness but for everyday use I would recommend getting the 50 1.4 because its built way better. I purchased this lens a couple years ago, rarely used it because its so slow to focus and not as sharp as my 24-70mm 2.8L.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Difficult to Clean, Slow Focus, Weak Casing
