I bought mine from Simply Electronics, and it took a while to get here but ever since it got here, it's been the only lens i've used! I love it, my favourite lens that I own by far. The price is brilliant, I bought it with my birthday money (I'm a teen photographer, so I don't have much money to spend on camera equipment :P)

Shop around for the best price available, it can vary quite a bit… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/02/2009

The 50/1.8 must be a slight embarrassment to Canon, they have produced an exceptional lens, esp. when you stop it down to mid ranges (F 4 to F 8) for contrast, sharpness and color saturation. All this for $USD100!!. It is better than the Canon kit lens on your entry level DSLR and produces images with the pleasing isolation of shallow depth of field when shooting wide open that the kit lens can't do. The creative control also includes the short tele effects on the APS-C smaller chips, good… Read Full Review
