Review summary from DPReview

January 2009
Ultimately, this is a lens we'd encourage any Canon DSLR owner currently shooting with 'kit' zooms to try.

Conclusion

This is a lens which we'd encourage any Canon DSLR owner currently shooting with 'kit' zooms to try. The overall image quality when stopped down a bit is very impressive indeed, and the fast maximum aperture offers creative options which are well worth exploring. It's a pity about the build quality and harsh bokeh, but ultimately this lens hits a price:performance ratio that's very difficult to beat.

Reasons to buy

  • Excellent image quality when stopped down
  • Essentially no lateral chromatic aberration
  • Low price

Things to consider

  • Low build quality
  • Harsh and distracting bokeh due to pentagonal aperture
  • Vignetting at wide apertures on full-frame cameras
  • Inconsistent autofocus in low light

Suggested for

Inexpensive and sharp, this 50mm prime punches above its weight when it comes to image quality, and functions well as a standard 50mm on full-frame and a portrait-friendly 75mm (equivalent) on APS-C

Not suggested for

Build quality isn't great (you get what you pay for). Autofocus is slow and unrefined, and bokeh can be somewhat harsh when images are examined critically.
