Pros: Cheap and quality. 50th used, money really well spent.

Cons: I'm too satisfied to find any. I have seen, however, that for the same shooting parameters the 50mm f1.4 is "much brighter".

Opinion: Bright and cheap optics, it is a must for those who want to make portraits. Compared to the yongnuo, the image is more detailed, from what I have seen from online photos, which means for example that in a portrait you can also catch imperfections of the skin that the yongnuo would not take, so I do not know if it is good or bad. For those who have canon could as in my case could evaluate the yongnuo, in my case I paid the used canon as the yongnuo, I considered it more commercial even to resell and so I took that. For those who may be a fan of the new gear, the yongnuo for Canon costs less than half a new one and is definitely an attractive alternative.

Pros: Yield in relation to price

Cons: A lot, but they don't count for anything.

Opinion: For years it was glued to my 450d, until she was sold and he didn't, despite having even his heir STM... The AF engine is a rusty tractor forgotten in the countryside under the weather, built with the same plastic as disposable glasses, if the shake reminds me of the soggy from when I was small, the manual focus is ergonomically embarrassing, after f 2.2 the five-sided blur is lurking, but it also has flaws! In my opinion, its performance is even better than that of the STM grandson, as far as detailing from f2 up and making color. I'm never going to sell it. Also because it's worthless!

Pros: Price, sharpness, size, nice bokeh

Cons: Sharpness under 2.8, maf, construction

Opinion: It 'probably one of those lenses that anyone approaches photography sooner or later must necessarily buy, but it will become interesting and useful even when you are more experienced (at least for me) .rnThe construction is certainly not the best but remember that the price is around 100 € or little more.rnSurely not my favorite lens is not by chance the use infrequently, but for some sporadic portrait I would say that it is more than enough because the sharpness from 2.8 up is really good and the bokeh ... very pleasant ... rnNon very precise maf, sometimes a little slow and cumbersome, however, the quality-price ratio justifies the success of this lens over the years.rnNon I got to try the new STM version but I suppose it is better especially as regards the maf.

Pros: Price, excellent resolution starting from f.2,8 but usable at TA, size / weight

Cons: Blurry absolutely ugly, but fantastic for those who are used to zooming; huge flare and collapse of contrast to backlight or when light sources frame, all-plastic construction, lack of depth of field, prehistoric autofocus

Opinion: Despite all the faults is a view that I use with pleasure and of which I do not regret the purchase (at the time analog), now there is no more reason to buy it and except if you find it at the price at best price is better orient the purchase towards the new STM version that has been improved in: boken, the AF and the flare for a price that remains super-économico.rnPS: I use it in FULL FRAMErn

Pros: 2.8 sharpness, pleasing blur, pre-historic but effective focus, incredible price quality

Cons: Sharpness below 2.8, almost unusable at 1.8 due to poor sharpness and large vignetting, really slow focus.

Opinion: My first serious lens and true guilty of my passion for photography. Compared to the 18-55 in kit it seems to have another camera. Great as everything to do but vote for portraiture. It does not excel at anything but is really a great lens at a price from a dinner at the restaurant. Purchased 4 or 5 years ago and never again sold back always useful.
