Well made and very very happy with it.
Build quality: Yep, the build quality is seen better on more expensive lens, it's plastic (optical stuff are glass of course). It feels a little bit flimsy, but not as bad as many reviewers state. Plastic quality is a lot better than I expected after reading a lot of reviews before I bought it. Handle it with care, and it'll probably last for a long time.... worst case, at least it's cheap to replace.
Handling: Some people say it's AF is noisy. Well, it's not that bad - your mirror in the SLR actually make more noise than the AF motor in the lens. It's not as quiet as Canons more expensive lenses, but I don't really care.It works for me.
Optical quality: Now this is where this lens really, really shines. It's one of the best lenses I've ever seen, and I've seen quite a bit. A bit soft in the corners on f/1.8, but a few stops down and it's sharp! Compared to Canons kit lens, the 18-55, we are in a completely different league - the kit lens is fine from 25-40mm, but from 40mm and up it has it's limitations in picture quality. I've borrowed Canons 50mm f/1.4 a couple of times, but I prefer this lens optically.
Bottom line: If you don't have this lens - buy it!
As many (simpler) fixed lenses that you will more likely use with tripod and decent lights, this lens does not have Image Stabilizer.
(And as it might be familiar fact for many, using ImageStabilizer on tripod might cause unwanted camera shake, rather than helping avoid it, so that might be the reason why many fixed lenses like this one, wouldn't even have much use for stabilizer function.)
This lens, next to 85mm, is considered one of the best choices for portraits, but also works for anything else that doesn't require zoom. That would include landscapes, for example.
Widest f-stop range is 1.8, which is pretty decent value, giving more light and more shallow depth of field for decent bokeh (aka background blur) than number of other lenses, specially if you have luxury to choose background for your portrait photo.
Of course it doesn't fully measure up to far pricier lenses with f1.4 or f1.2, which tend to give smoother bokeh (also more light, slightly clearer photo quality at wider ranges, etc) but for low price it still does the job very well.
If you are new to system cameras; if you are more casual photographer; if you are not quite ready to let go £280 or £1200 for fancier lenses just yet; then this lens is definitely a must have.
You will get good balance of quality and low price.
Would definitely recommend this lens!
