Excerpt: This standard 50mm lens sports a fast f/1.8 maximum aperture, ideal for blurring backgrounds, or for shooting in low light conditions. However, unlike many 'nifty-fifty' lenses, this optic carries a rather high £250 price tag. Is it worth the extra over equivalents from other manufacturers? We'll take a closer look to ascertain if it is.
Pros: Excellent sharpness from maximum aperture, Good build for the lens barrel, Fast focusing, Virtually no CA or distortion
Cons: A bit on the pricey side for a 50mm f/1.8, Plastic lens mount.
