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 in absolute terms from f4, chromatic yield, footprint, weight

Cons: AC at full open, minimum focus distance

Opinion: Taken in trade-in, without having put it into account, during the sale of a zoom, in conditions equal to the new, after everything I had read in the reviews here on juza, I expected that attached to the machine body, at the very least it sent everything into tilt, came out evil demons of the out of focus and disdirected after two seconds. But to my astonishment I realized that it works and that it also works well, always focusing where I wanted. I started testing it at TA and I have to say that it will not be the maximum of sharpness, but if necessary it can be used very well; I continued to use it, gradually closing the diaphragm to f2.8 and the results rose considerably in quality; I closed to f4 and became a blade and continues to grow up to 5.6-8, then better not go further to not affect the quality with the diffraction. I also have the excellent 50 stm at the moment, but compared to this 1.4 turns out to be less responsive in focus and slightly cold and disused colors, also the boken in this lens will not be perfect, but the stm is much worse as it is too nervous. I'd say the price difference between the two optics is all there, I'm using it on 6d mark II and it goes great unlike the specimens Sigma f1.4 ex and Art series, which I got to try, which instead present great difficulty in finding the optimal focus even at fine adjustment performed, but this is perhaps due to some imcopatibility introduced by Canon on this machine body, as with 80D and some other recent body, in order to force the user to use only , with which in fact there are no problems of focus in the vast majority of cases. Finally, the weight and footprint make it an optics to always keep in the bag/backpack at hand.

Pros: lightness, compactness, gorgeous color rendering, maximum opening

Cons: AF not always precise (in LV, on the other hand, there is no mistake, but it is thanks to the DPAF at that point), slight softness in TA

Opinion: I like it because it is a feather, gives a warm and "vintage" rendering to the shots and can open the diaphragm at 1.4 ... On the other, it is true that it is a bit soft at TA, but extreme sharpness is not the purpose of this lens, nor should it be for those who buy it. By the way, already closing at 1.6 / 1.8 we are at consonant levels. I also confirm the impression of AF inconsistent with very open diaphragms, said this however if you close the diaphragm from 2 onwards is a blade and does not miss a beat. For larger openings, I rely either on the MF or the excellent DPAF of the Live View Canon, and then problems solved even then. For the price on the used, a lens that gives nice satisfactions (new I actually would not have taken it...)! Vote 8, but only for the two small and partial "against".

Pros: Good starting point

Cons: At the price at which there is nothing of what

Opinion: Nice lens to start photographing as it should, to get comfortable with the reduced depth of field. Costa €200 new, get to make long disquisitions on chromatic aberrations or the non-superb sharpness would be misplaced. It's a good starting point for everyone, better than the Plasticotto 50 1.8 that frankly disadvise. If you do not have €200 for a lens, do not buy a reflex and go 3 times a restaurant. For the rest will give you some rewarding shots. On APS-C it becomes an 85mm suitable for portraits. It also pulls out a really blurry one, of a middle ground between a swirly and something not well defined, chaotic but without being ugly. If you are amateurs and can not focus the first few times do not give up, just take your hand. Note that it is also a very compact lens.

Pros: Size and low weight, AF speed, sharpness from f/2 up, price

Cons: AF inconsistent, mild chromatic aberrations, soft to TA

Opinion: Excellent lens that returns satisfactory shots, if you take the fire. By focusing subjects closely there are no problems, but from the distance often cane the focus. Already sent to calibrate in assistance and done the test of the F/b focus but seems not to suffer. However in the portraits "large" (more than half a bust) often (a 30% of the photos), focusing with the center point on the face, cane the focus and maybe puts to focus closer or farther (there is no constant) species at large openings. I use a 6d. With manual focus you solve problems but it is not suitable for photos that require speed and precision of focus.
