Pros: Lightweight, construction, fast and silent AF, very sharp when stopped down, great bokeh

Cons: Soft wide open (but some may also like it), lens hood not included, CA wide open

Opinion: This is a great lens to carry around, I wanted a fast lens and this was the one. Very useful on low light conditions, excellent for portraits (specially on APS-C bodies). You have to stop it down to get a sharper image. The AF motor is very silent and you have full time manual (this is great specially on low light conditions to help to the AF system). The construction is great, much better that the 50mm f/1.8, with a metal mount. It's not as cheap as the f/1.8, but you pay for better construction and quality. Not outstanding, but still a great lens.

Pros: Sharpness from f2, blurred, construction, lightness, display with focus data.

Cons: Devastating chromatic aberrations at TA, poor sharpness from TA to f1.8, fast but unreliable focus, back and front focus suffering that varies from exemplary to exemplary and camera body.

Opinion: An excellent fifty that, despite the old project, still defends itself well today. The yield varies slightly between one specimen and another, between sharpness and focus. In general, cash that is dated and today costs 400 euros new and 200/300 used, has a very good sharpness from f2 upwards, from f4 onwards it is very sharp, good blurred and good colors. Spotting the focus, at f1.4 / f1.6 it is very soft but sometimes poetic, therefore usable for particular portraits. Going by attempt I bought two used specimens as new, then keeping the sharpest one and without the back and front focus. It took me some time to figure out how to exploit it well, but now I'm satisfied and it has entered my operational park. Recommended after careful analysis and testing!

Pros: Almost everything!

Cons: Only the price (today) and the construction not really excellent.

Opinion: I see a lot of negative reviews but honestly it is a lens that I have always used with satisfaction, it is small, light, f1.4 and the yield is more than good, just a little soft at full aperture. I am at the third specimen in my life, never had problems, the others I have destroyed in various ways unfortunately. The autofocus to tell the truth has never given me trouble, even in conditions of very low light with moving subjects and at full aperture, I have always failed very few shots, ok, always used with bodies of the 5d or 1d series is true, but it has never really given me problems. The only negative note is the construction, in my opinion a little more quality would not hurt ... and the price of the new to date, calculating how much I paid a few years ago the last specimen ... but considering the used round, I think you find some good offers around. Surely it is a lens that I recommend, I repeat, small, light and a more than good yield ... without forgetting that it has a diaphragm 1.4. Those who do not want to spend like this, can go on the 1.8, very comfortable even that and is in a pocket.

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Autofocus,blurred

Opinion: The worst lens I had, mounted on 5dmk2, canon 6d and 7d autofocus a complete disaster on 10 photos I had 2 in focus lost time with autofocus microregulation without a minimum result too dancer impossible to calibrate, some shots with the m.a.f forward and some behind, even as blurred just did not like, given by despair, vote 0

Pros: f1.4, built better than "younger brother" (1.8)

Cons: AF, noise, sharpness, no stabilization, no tropicalization

Opinion: I had it for a couple of months, used with the old 5D Old. The images obtained were yes, good, but not excellent. Excessively noisy and really slow in hooking the subject, even during the day! Paradoxically I found myself better with the fifty 1.8 (tried by friends a few times). In conclusion, I want to hope that I bought it defective, because I do not think that Canon does such approximate things
