Standard lens featuring high quality and portability. Two high-refraction lens elements and Gaussian optics eliminate astigmatism and suppress astigmatic difference. Crisp images with little flare are obtained even at the maximum aperture.

From the manufacturer
It’s often said that a face can tell a thousand stories. And the real beauty of portrait photography is that every shot is as individual as the person in it. Capturing a face can be one of the most satisfying and rewarding types of photography. And, with a good lens and the right technique, it’s easy to get the results you want.
The ultimate mixture of versatility and image quality
With its fast maximum aperture and rapid focusing system, the compact, high performance EF 50mm f/1.4 USM standard lens can be relied on for superb performance in any field of photography.
An ultrasonic motor drives autofocus extremely quickly, and in near silence. Excellent holding torque ensures the point of focus is reached accurately, without overshooting. Furthermore, full-time manual override is available, making it possible to adjust focus without leaving AF mode.
Super Spectra coating
Super Spectra coatings ensure accurate colour balance and enhance contrast. They also reduce flare and ghosting – a common problem caused by light bouncing off a camera's sensor.
Smooth background blur
A virtually circular aperture diaphragm gives out of focus regions a softer, more uniform feel. Sharp foreground objects stand out against a smooth blurred background.

Well made and very very happy with it.
The only thing that is different for a amateur, is that you can't zoom in or out, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing, as you get another perspective of the image, as the photographer is forced to move!
Brilliant lens would highly recommend for someone wanting to brighten up their indoor shots!
It is the cheapest canon lens with 1.8, the image quality gets quite good as I close down the aperture, images are quite sharp from around 4.0.
It is perfect to start low light photography and play around with the depth of field, I can do pretty spectacular family photos even at 1.8 if the image is downscaled - its not worth sending photos more than ~1000 pixels to the family anyway, they have limited number of pixels on their monitor.
On a crop sensor camera I did not have too much luck with the 18-55 lens (too soft), so instead I bought a couple of primes, the 24/2.8, 50/1.8 and 40/2.8 covers everything I need and capable of making very sharp photos (the 40/2.8 is extremely sharp at all apertures, that is a very good lens).
This lens will work on cropped sensor and full frame DSLRs, and older film EOS SLRs - it is equivalent to 80mm on my 650D.
It takes some getting used to using a fixed focal length, as you have to use your feet to zoom in and out, but the image quality is sharp and quite superb for the price. So it has an all plastic, almost toy-like body (even the lens mount is plastic - treat it with care and respect, and it should last just fine), the autofocus is a tad noisy and not superfast, and the manual focus ring is tiny (don't forget to flick the switch from AF to MF, as there isn't full-time manual focus override available) - but hey, this lens just works!
Personally, I find images at the maximum aperture of f/1.8 slightly out of focus, and the background blur is a bit harsh (probably due to the small number of diaphragm blades). Like another reviewer, I love the images I have taken at f/2.8, subjects are sharp with reasonably shallow depth of field. Of course, the aperture selected is dependent on what you're shooting, and this lens has a minimum aperture of f/22 (although on APS-C you probably won't want to go much smaller than f/16).
It is a good lens for low light photography, especially indoors. Note that the filter thread does not rotate on autofocus, so you can happily use a polarising filter.
Mounted to my 650D, it makes for a very light combination, and is a great introduction to photography with a prime lens.
