Pros: Very good image quality - sharp, good contrast and bokeh. Light, compact, fast and silent AF with FTM, popular 58mm filter thread. And all that for less than $400.

Cons: Color aberrations (the fringing) can be too much sometimes, in some specific lighting conditions. Disappointing lens hood design, and it's not included. The minimum focusing distance is 0.85m and it doesn't make it a good close-up lens.

Opinion: In short, for the price, it's a dream lens. A wonderful option for someone starting his FF adventure. The moment I put it on my 5D2 for the first time it was like magic. I could shoot a nice, or seemingly flawless picture of anything and everything with it. Almost no boring images. I even kept many misfocused ones. Compared to a cheap 50F1.8, this is a next level lens. And it's the level that I'm comfortable with to this day. However, if you have an extra $100 lying around, then you might like its bigger "sister" more, the EF 100F2 USM, which is a bit better in many aspects, same level though :).

Pros: Bokeh, sharpness, AF fast, compact, reliable

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: I use it on a 70d, matched winning, purchased used at 170 degrees, and well immediately showed character, sharp at f1.8 let alone closing diaphragm to f4, the engine usm is very fast and silent the focus is precise to the maximum and finally gives us exciting photos for quality, I recommend it with my eyes closed.

Pros: Weight, cost

Cons: Lens hood

Opinion: this too like all my lenses taken used, just to try it and saw the price at which I found it.... but the little use, AF good, even if not very fast, tried also on moving subjects, but it is not ideal. Bad the lampshade, I find it very complicated its graft and its release, and being the original one I am a bit amazed.

Pros: Excellent sharpness and blurry, small and light lens

Cons: autofocus not very fast but precise, unwatchable lampshade for practicality

Opinion: Taken used last fall at a great price and with warranty, I used it in some fashion shows and for portraits at the Venice carnival. Used on Canon 6D. I have to say that, as mentioned by others, it has a very good sharpness from 2.8 onwards, although at more open diaphragms it is still very good. The autofocus, especially in suboptimal light situations is not very fast, but when it hooks it is accurate. Of course with open diaphragm really has a beautiful blur. Very light and short, here great to carry with, it has a really bad lampshade in the hooking, which is also found not only by me.

Pros: Bokeh, sharpness, AF lightning, compact

Cons: It's a vacuum cleaner, stabilizer

Opinion: I use it on apsc Bought second-hand at 230euro, regretted at most when at less than 250euro you bring it home brand new on global center patience. Nothing to say or almost about this jewel that pulls out spectacular portraits already at f2, allows you to take the entire subject by detaching it from the background giving a nice bokeh, the lack of the stabilizer can negatively affect with low times, the aberrations chromatics do not seem so excessive to me, excellent bokeh, sharpness of the images and a good blur with weight and contained shapes make it an indispensable tool in the backpack the real counter I would say serious enough is the easy infiltration of dust in the lenses, after having disassembled and cleaned up in a very short time is again full of dust and this is very serious and should not happen
