Verified Purchase
I am an advanced amateur photographer. I pair this lens with my Canon's 50 mm 1.4 to satisfy all of my photography needs (mostly indoor natural light photos of my son with the occasional studio light setup). Nowadays, this lens is on my camera 95% of the time whenever I am planning to photograph my son. I love how compact and lightweight it is. Unlike the 50 mm 1.4, the lens barrel does not expand with focusing. Therefore, I don't have to worry so much, as I do with my 50, about bumping the front of the lens or damaging it in a smaller bag. I often just bring my camera with this lens in my tiny camera bag when I go out. The sharpness on this lens is phenomenal. I also like that it will be useful when I upgrade to a full-frame camera. Some common criticism I have heard about this lens and my responses:

1) Not a useful focal length (e.g., it is covered by many zooms).
On a crop sensor, I find this focal length very useful. My zoom is f/4.5 at 28 mm with nowhere near the sharpness. All wide aperture zooms covering 28 mm are huge, heavy, expensive, and not as sharp. For my object distances, I can zoom with my feet. On a full-frame, it might be less useful.

2) Who needs IS on such a small focal length. I'd take a half stop over IS.
I love the IS on this lens. In general, my technique is pretty good. But, when you are chasing a young child and taking picture from weird position (e.g., laying on your back looking up), any help the IS can provide is usually an improvement. Having a wider aperture over IS doesn't help you when you are DOF constrained.

3) Not a good value.
Probably not a good value for most people, but for me, I wanted a lens that would give me professional quality images without the L-series price tag. At f/2.8 and above, you are getting L-series prime quality images in a lightweight, portable lens.

The combination of a newly designed prime lens with full frame coverage plus Image Stabilization gives amazing optical performance, especially when only the central portion is used on a half frame camera, producing some of the sharpest handheld photos I have ever captured, period. It's also light and small. I used it on my tiny Canon SL1 body and the results are fantastic for general photography with an equivalent focal length about 45 mm.

It should be noted that many photographers do not understand that IS is not instantaneous and this fact is rarely brought out on the major photo websites, etc. Once activated by pressing the shutter halfway or the AF-ON button, even after the AF is locked, it takes a finite time to stabilize. Larger aperture lenses seem to take longer, up to a full second. If you just press the shutter button immediately, it will lock the focus but does NOT automatically wait until the IS is stabilized. Although you can observe the stabilization take place in the viewfinder, there is no camera function that can be set to indicate when IS is locked or alternatively delay the shutter until it is. Given the importance of IS, this is a deficiency in Canon and any other camera I know of. The best way I've found to get around this is to use autofocus in servo (continuous) mode; then when the shutter button is pressed half way, IS is initiated but the focal point is still allowed to vary until you perferctly frame and capture the shot. This guarantees that IS will be fully engaged.

You can see the effect of IS for yourself by setting to shutter priorty around 1/5 second, which is the speed where IS is most significant.

This is the best lens for a cropped sensor camera, such as the APS-C sensor on the Rebel series. Some reviews are stating issues at the corners. However this doesn't happen on the Rebel series due to the cropped sensor size.

In my case I'm only considering its performance on the Rebel series. I'm using a Rebel 5ti. This lens is perfect for this camera!

First off, the effective angle on this lens is around 45mm (1.6 x 28mm) on the Rebel series. This is perfect as a general use fixed lens, being only slightly wider than the common 50mm lens used on full frame cameras.

Image quality has been perfect in my photos, far exceeding all other lenses I have. Disregard any issues at the corners which some reviews report on full frame cameras. This doesn't occur with the Rebel's APS-C sensor because the corners are cropped out due to the smaller sensor size.

Image stabilization works flawlessly. In my collection of lenses I have two other Canon lenses with image stabilization. I'll never buy another lens without IS. In fact, I was debating between this lens and another that goes down to F1.8 but that doesn't have IS. I'm happy I chose this lens. The IS allows for clearer images at higher F stop settings, even if the shutter needs to be open slightly longer to gather light.

Practically speaking this lens is phenomenal for photographing kids and family events. The ability to go down to F2.8 works wonders for using available light indoors at night. Otherwise, all flash photos have turned out perfect. The image stabilization helps for hand-holding the camera. The fixed lens is also a blessing rather than a curse. The camera is lighter, and one-handed photography is easy to do when autofocus is used. No need for a second hand to hold the zoom setting.
