Top customer reviews
Here is why I would recommend this to anyone getting serious about their photography:
The image quality is excellent, if you are still using a kit lens or some cheap off brand lens you picked up you will want to forget you ever owned them. This thing gets close to the sharpness of L glass that I have used, has good but not amazing color reproduction and depth of field control like I had never experienced before. F2 and below melts everything but your subject away into generally pleasing Bokeh (see attached shots). Just know it is soft at the wider apertures, only pro glass seems to be razor sharp wide open. F4 became my go-to as that is when it's sharpness hits near its peak and the DOF was highly manageable on my APS-C camera. F8 is a razor blade and will show more detail than is flattering for some subjects.
THE PRIME EXPERIENCE:
Astounding image quality for price aside, this thing makes you think more about the important things simply because it's a prime. You never have to think about what focal length to zoom to on your subject, you just frame your subject and shoot. The consistent frame becomes something you see mentally with your moment and you begin to visualize your shot before your camera is in front of you. More intentionality means better photos.
Feels plastic-y and cheap, makes quiet-ish noises when focusing. Held up to minor drops and so far 8 months of sling-over-shoulder-bump-into-everything abuse. It survives and keeps giving me beautiful images, only praises here. Manual focus works but this lens is designed for AF so its nothing I would use unless I had to.
Incredible bang for buck and I will hold on to this "niffty 50" as long as I shoot Canon.
Ive never been the type to give technical specs, Im more of the speak what you know...Im not too saavy with all the spec stuff. I just have a good eye for photos, and after reading HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS of reviews and researching lenses for WEEKS trying to find a good buy for under $200.00...this was hands down the one.
I can notttt emphasise enough how great this little lens is. Who the hell would wanna use an 18-55 if you own this little guy. The quality is superior, the shipping was soo quick and it was packaged new in box, even though I got it mine cheaper used.
If your trying to take your game up, but dont have HUNDREDS to spend...buy this one. I promise promise promise... you will not regret it. I admit I dont know half as much as so many photographers out their, but I can tell you one thing...this lens is unbelievable.
Some people may be thinking I've got a zoom lens that does a lot more than just a fixed 55mm, so why would I want to spend money on this lens? In a word, aperture. Most zooms have apertures starting at around f4. This lens starts at f1.8. If you are not entirely sure what f stops, apertures etc. really mean, in non-technical terms, the lower the f stop number, the more light gets into the lens. The more light that gets into the lens the more control you have over shutter speed. In practical terms that means you are going to get far better pictures in low light, nightclubs, bars, at dusk etc. With a standard zoom lens, in low light, the shutter speed will have to decrease in order to let the proper amount of light in. With the lower shutter speed you are very prone to fuzzy images due to camera shake, or the target moving. With this lens, you can have a much higher shutter speed meaning these things are less likely to happen and you have sharp, clear pictures.
The canon 55 prime (a prime lens just means that it has a fixed focal length, not a zoom) is a joy to use. It produces sharp, clear pictures, so although the lens in cheap it doesn't appear that Canon skimped on the quality of the glass inside. Auto focus is fast however I'm not huge fan of the manual focus ring, it seems quite loose and turns to infinity but it does do its job. With the lens being so light you don't even notice the difference in weight on your camera, its as if it doesn't exist.
I tested this lens out on a Canon EOS 70D with wonderful results and for the price you just cannot beat it. The Canon EF 50mm f1.4 lens for example costs 3 times as much. Whether you are just getting started in photography or have been doing it for years, this is a must have lens. You just can't beat the price/performance.
