An excellent prime lens for beginners.

I've been owning this lens for about 3 months now, and I've only good things to say about it. Those people who are giving it a low rating are probably expecting way too much out of it for the price they're paying. Come to think of it - it's priced at around Rs 5.5K and you get a fantastically large (f/1.8) aperture for that money!

The focal length 50mm is also highly practical and I've used it to take pictures of people and landscape with equally pleasing results. The larger aperture can com...

THIS LENS MAKES L SERIES LENSES LOOK SOMBRE

If you want to upgrade from your kit lens i would suggest to buy this lens right away without any hesitation. I have listed out points according to my use and importance.

(1)Build quality is plasticky(so avoid from dropping it down)but the optics are of very high quality.
(2)Overall sharpness is very good and color reproduction is excellent.
(3)You can create wonderful BOKEH.
(4)Pretty good AUTO FOCUS during daytime.
(5)The major drawback is the sound during auto focus. It is annoying but I...

Crisp images, great for street photography

The much touted "poor build quality" of this product is irrelevant UNLESS you are an "embedded" photojournalist. You know - war zone type of action.

The pictures are incredibly sharp, which is what I was expecting when moving away from zoom lenses. The 1.8 aperture makes fast low light photography possible...BUT! - in low light the lens tracks a lot, focussing and re-focussing over and over. Use "MF" mode in low light OR where you want a very shallow DOF.

50mm just does not work out for clo...

Wonderful lens, good companion to the kit lens

Mixed feelings, a little unlucky with this lens.
I might not be an expert photographer, but definitely not new to using different lenses and alternating between them.
Opened the lens from its box, tried to mount it on my 550d. It was tighter than usual, I mean wouldnt sit right (again red dot on camera should match the red dot on the lens...I know that much). I knew something was not rite. A little more force, a small click sound and then it fit perfectly. Clicked snaps, was perfect ! Tri...

Good lens

I have owned this lens for over a week now. I was in need of:
1) Light weight
2) Fast
3) Cheap/Economical
lens for a wedding shoot. The experience of ordering the lens and getting it in 29 hours is extraordinary. Thanks Flipkart!

The lens meets and beats the criteria that I listed. I have a full frame camera and therefore the selection of lenses is limited and expensive. What I needed was a fast lens that I could use for wedding photography (I do not use flashes), with the limitations in lig...

Great product for the price

This is probably the cheapest lens sold by Canon worldwide, but the results belie the price.
Apparently, the cost cutting has been done with the build quality, but the results are excellent.

Very good for anyone starting out with a Canon DSLR before graduating to the more expensive 50mm f/1.4 or 50mm f/1.2 lenses.

Excellent Lens. Excellent Packaging by Flipkart's WS Retail.

I already had a Canon EOS 600D with 18-135mm 3.5-5.6 IS Kit lens... This lens was a pleasant surprise to my eyes. Let me rate its good points in comparison to my 18-135:

1. Lightning fast autofocus. Slightly faster than 18-135 kit lens.

2. Very light weight, much lighter than my 18-135, almost half the weight.

3. Smaller sized than 18-135. Almost half of it.

4. Image resolution is better than 18-135's for most focal lengths. I took some pics and they came out very detailed. I was mind-blo...

Great cheap portrait lens

The 50mm/1.8 is a good, cheap lens for portraits. 50mm used to be the normal focal length in the 35mm film days, now it serves as a telephoto-ish option on DSLR bodies. This is a fantastic lens for taking pictures of family, kids, pets. However it is not without its cons

What I like about this lens
- Great sharpness when stopped down
- Great bokeh means lovely portraits
- Large aperture means its a great lens for low light situations

What I don't like
- Poor autofocus in low light. The shal...
