Sigma 50mm f1.4,
This review is from: Sigma 50mm F1.4 EX DG Filter Size 77 Interchangeable Lens for Canon AF (Electronics)
This lens is excellent! I bought it with the Canon 550d slr as a present for my partner and it was the first lens she used on the camera.
The quality of light this lens picks up is simply amazing, especially after using a compact for the past few years. We were simply messing about indoors with low light and no tripod but managed to take beautifully lit photographs without any distortion.
The issues mentioned regarding autofocus is partially true but then you should never truly rely on the machine to take the picture for you.
I would recommend this lens to everyone. Next purchase will be a 70-200mm
