Pros: Sharpness, brightness, lightness, sophisticated optical design.

Cons: Noisy autofocus.

Opinion: Every now and then I go back to photograph with this little gem snubbed by many. The optical yield is excellent and can be used as standard on FF and medium canvases on Aps-c where it becomes an 80 mm. great for portraits. On macro photos with not too small subjects I subscribe to the Canon EF12 II reaching discrete results, even if I am not a fan of the macro. Brava Canon for taking it out of production, making it a unique object for his optical design.

Pros: Absolute cost, detail and sharpness, weight and grip really limited

Cons: Slow and noisy auto focus.

Opinion: I have bought this optic for a few months, paying it a stupid thing. It is worth all the money spent. The magnification on ff arrives at 0.5 X even if the body indicates the notches 1/1, but to get them I was told it was necessary to mount the special converter. Without it's great for Still Life and "set" macro of subjects not really tiny like snails, large grasshoppers, lizards, flowers, etc. Assembled on aps-c the crop factor makes it much more interesting for insect photos. R Very bright and light. The only flaw The autofocus naturally of the old generation is noisy and slow. However, it is a great fifty that is well defended for generic use. RnrnSu 5d is disproportionately small on 7dii and it's definitely cooler. RnrnThe diaphragm closes a lot so you do not have great depth field problems. rnrnConsigliatissimo. You can always keep it in the ready-to-use bag.

Pros: Sharpness - lightness

Cons: the old generation noisy AF

Opinion: Hard to explain to those who have not used or not he uses this goal. You see it and you feel in low-quality plasticized, touch it and try to focus on something mettta in AF and you think back to the 90s with an annoying noise, clicks and you wonder why you have not installed the new 50 1.8 STM. Look at the picture and understand! For me it's exciting a lens, period. This macro there to have a ratio of 1: 1 requires the extension tube, is the autofocus is very old, but at the bottom of a picture do we want? Emotions and to me this sense, the da! Suitable for all kinds, for the pockets of anyone ... well a perspective that opens the picture at all. Try it in life!

Pros: Photographic quality, light, closes up to F32, a standard focal that lends itself to many photographic genres.

Cons: I don't know, just knowing what it lends itself to.

Opinion: It lends itself with great satisfaction to the photography dedicated to the food: catalogues, cookbooks, packaging, gastronomy and cocktails both in the studio and with the natural light. It is part of the old generation and you can not expect to compare it to new technologies for the speed of autofocus but in manual is nothing short of fantastic. The manufacturer has noticed the "error" qualitative of this gem: With little you get great photographs, and is removed from production, no update, no change makes you think only of this.

Pros: Optics with Sharpness for the quality / price ratio better than Canon.

Cons: Not excels in many things ... in the relationship macro, nell'autofocus, the focus in the points of light, a bit 'plasticky ..... yet it has something that fascinates ... I can not describe it but I can understand those who possess .

Opinion: Despite the cons ... I consider this view especially for its price .... very underrated ... if you want to know what can be sharper a photo taken with your SLR canon (with an optical below 400 euro), you only one way, use this strange lens ..... but beware, after, you can not mount a 17-85 or similar .... and see the photos at 100% ...:-) I avvertiti.rnrnAlla the end of this test you can see the difference in sharpness between 17-85 (which is not really an optical throw:-)) and 50 2.5, there is just no comparison on nitidezza..per other things. .Type autofocus ... is.etc..ma are born to optical requirements diverse.rnrnhttp: //fotorealis.jimdo.com/2012/09/01/pixel-binning-canon/
