    I've tried all of Canon's 50mm lenses from the cheap, plasticky f1.8 to the hyper-expensive f1.0. This is the best compromise and allows decent shutter speeds in low light without flash. It ia sharp all the way to the edges (upto A3 at least) and doesn't seem to be affected by flare even without a lens shade. If all you have used is the zoom that came with the camera kit, I suggest you try this and see what a difference a decent prime (single focal length) lens makes. At nearly £300, however, it is quite an investment, but worth it.

    I was looking for an upgrade to my 1.8 lens. Something that was as light and small as it was, but with better build quality and resolution. The 1.4 has really delivered for me. The extra bokeh at 1.4 is great and at f4 and beyond the sharpness is as good as anything I've seen. I like the physical size of the lens as it's light and neat on my 5dmk II. The build quality is far superior to the 1.8. The only downside to the lens is when using it in manual focus. The focussing ring seems to take 1.5 full turns to focus from near to far. What would be way more convenient would be maybe a quarter turn, like with my 16-35L lens. Besides that though, I would give this a 5 out of 5. Wish I had bought it earlier.

    I have to say I absolutely love this lens, I think its amazing and I spent a great deal of time contemplating which 'first' lens to get for my Canon 550D based on a very limited budget (the camera body alone wiped me out financially which didn't leave me with much choice naturally). After pouring over the web endlessly I chose to buy the 550D (body only) as I wanted to establish the best quality initial system I could afford (naturally) and as I love portraiture and have a keen interest in video; a fast prime lens made the most sense. Unfortunately I was initially seduced by the ridiculously cheap 'Canon 50mm f/1.8 mk ii' after reading great reviews, but sadly I had nothing short of a total nightmare experience with its appalling build quality primarily due to the abysmal quality control of Canon. To provide some perspective; I purchased 3 lenses in a row and each and everyone of them was either unsatisfactory or failed in some way shape or form (i.e. dust/debris inside the lens from new, lens element wiggling loose et al).

    As such, in the end I snapped, gave up and bought the 'Canon EF 50mm - f/1.4' version instead, and the difference was literally night and day - astonishing; I just wish I'd had the foresight to chose this version in the 1st place, but you live and learn! With regard to the f/1.4 version the difference in build quality is huge, naturally its not as lush as the all metal Luxury f/1.2 version, but from my experience its very well constructed, the focusing ring feels very smooth (on my copy) and importantly the optics are stunning. I can't believe just how sharp this lens can be when stopped down a little, its truly amazing the degree of detail you can see in a portrait (tiny pores, fine hairs et al) its hard not to be impressed by this lens.

    This is the first prime lens I have bought and I didn't know whether to go for the f1.8 or this one. After much research I went for the f1.4, the build quality is much better, the focussing is improved and that extra stop counts for a lot.

    The simplicity of this lens is such an eye opener, you have to work for your shots now instead of standing still and zooming in on everything. Your legs become your zoom and because of this you are much more likely to raise or lower your normal eye-level view of the world to find a more interesting angle on a subject.

    This lens is purely about quality of image, there are no gimmicks, no image stablisation or anything you don't need, you have a focussing ring and an AF/MF switch. That's it.

    Like every lens the sharpness is improved by stopping down from maximum, at f1.8 the 50mm is like a razor, even wide open at f1.4 the pictures are still pretty usable. But its the image, the colours are beautifully captured, the contrast is excellent, sharpness outstanding and the bokeh (out of focus areas) are so soft and creamy its like gazing into a pan of melted butter.

    This is the lens you've been looking for, it frees you creatively, lets you make those images you could only dream about before. Sure, it takes a bit of work to get the most from this lens, but the effort will repaid tenfold when you see the results possible with this little cracker.

    Sure, the f1.8 is a step in the right direction but the f1.4 is the grownup version, built to last and deliver the results time after time.

    I am not exagerrating when I say that this lens has reinvigorated my photography.

    If you own a Canon DSLR, you need this, its that simple.

    I've had mine for 8 years and it delivers sharp pictures with great colours every time. If I could only own one lens, this would be it.

    This lens is great for low light conditions. The focus is sharp and the background blur dreamy & creamy when wide open. Brilliant results with my 5d.

    I have recently bought this lens being a recent convert to Canon, and is already one of my favourites! I specialise in music photography, which means high ISO, no flash and low light conditions.

    This lens comes up trumps in all departments and for small / midsize venues, Crisp, fast and solid, this really is the only lens you will need.
