Good, Bad, & Ugly!
on December 1, 2015
This is a story of the Good, Bad, and the Ugly!
First the Good. Believe all the five star ratings on the len Photo Quality, it's great. Also, Amazon's same day delivery is awesome and true!
Next the Bad. This lens is very poor Build quality. It is plastic and won't last!
Next the Ugly. Canon makes four 50mm lens for conventional photography! There is an okay lens (this one; 50mm f/1.8 II for about $105), a great lens (50mm f/1.8 STM for about $110), a super lens (50mm f/1.4 USM for about $329) and an awesome lens (50mm f/1.2 L USM for about $1,349). The ugly part is why would Canon produce two VERY similar lens for only about $5 difference? This is where I got confused from my Husband's description and bought the cheap plastic lens instead of the metal basal lens.
Bottom line, if you want the best lens for your money; get the EF50mm f/1.8 STM lens for about ($110).
