Pros: Ghera for focus, distance scale, sharpness, small size

Cons: Noisy autofocus, nervous blurry

Opinion: Very simple lens, with distance scale, focus ghera and front lens that does not rotate. Up to f/4 has a fairly pronounced vignette and poor sharpness at the corners, but does not present significant chromatic aberrations. The focus is thanks to an AFD engine that, although it makes it faster than the Mark II to hook (it is comparable to the micro-Usm of the f/1.4), emits a deadly sound. Another defect can be found in the diaphragm, which has only 5 slats that make the blurry nervous. As various objectives of the past it has different characteristics between one specimen and another, and if you are lucky you find something really good. I found a specimen with excellent clarity and micro-contrast, with which remarkable results are already achieved at full opening, while I have tried others that have turned out to be good but not at the same level. Ps. One thing to check is that it doesn't suffer from front/back focus

Pros: Cost, general yield, distance scale

Cons: Noisy Autofocus

Opinion: Metal attack, distance scale and less plastic of its successors. Optical pattern unchanged from plastic fantastic (50mm 1.8 mkii). Bought years ago at 80 euros. It's my only 50mm, focal that I use occasionally. The detachment of the floors is and is pleasant but the sharpness at 1.8 is not the best, close to 2.8 and will be a nice companion of adventures and will give you satisfaction. You will learn to shoot with a fixed optics. Possibility of good portraits for the figure to which you find it bought it as well. As long as you can find... Extremely noisy and slow Autofocus (it's still a 31-year-old lens). But you pass it on.

Pros: Sharpness, brightness, blurred, weight, price

Cons: Autofocus a bit slow and noisy without drama

Opinion: Bought used to ny, the clerk suggested this version and as far as I read was a correct suggestion. I bought it and gave it a second so I liked it. Usable with little light, it manages to give back a pleasant blur even if sometimes it "betrays". People, animals, plants emerge naturally from the background. My favorite.

Pros: Optical output without infamy and without praise

Cons: all

Opinion: First series of Canon lenses for autofocus on analog Eos absolutely disappointing from the constructive point of view. Best certainly the Minolta.Ricordo that just took it back after a few days. Accustomed to the objectives for contax / zeiss I was literally shocked by the material with which it was built. It looked like it was not even plastic, but even pressed cardboard. Assembly with scary games. I had the impression of using a toy lens.

Pros: Sharpness, construction materials, lightness, size and price

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: This lens is part of my 1987 kit, absolutely zero problems, the autofocus is a bit slow and noisy, but since it was designed thirty years ago I would say that it does its job just fine. What to say has really left me speechless the quality of the photos taken with this lens so I did not think it was possible to get a lens for an analog camera, creates an absolutely fabulous vintage effect especially thanks to F1.8, I made other shots at f4 / 5.6 and the result was an incredible sharpness and uniformity that does not leave you at all to be desired, on the contrary. I'm starting to use a digital camera and I will certainly use this lens, proud of being its owner, excellent general performance and even straight from 1987 does not disappoint.
