Standard lens featuring superb quality and portability. Two high-refraction lens elements and new Gaussian optics eliminate astigmatism and suppress astigmatic difference. Crisp images with little flare are obtained even at the maximum aperture.
The 50mm f/1.4 standard lens is a terrific choice for both casual and professional photographers. The lens is outfitted with two high-refraction lens elements and new Gaussian optics, which combine to eliminate astigmatism and suppress astigmatic difference. As a result, the lens obtains crisp images with little flare even at the maximum aperture. The lens's f/1.4 speed, meanwhile, is perfect for available-light shooting. And as a bonus, this lens is the only lens in the EF system to offer an extra-small Micro Ultra Sonic Motor (USM) while still providing a full-time manual focusing option. Other features include a close focusing distance of 1.5 feet, a 58mm filter size, and a one-year warranty.

My sister in law has a canon and a canon lens with great shallow depth of field (something I can do in Adobe but it is time consuming and not as natural looking). She let me use her Canon t2i camera when we were in the hospital, and that's why I got my camera. When I realized I couldn't get my much more expensive t6i camera to do what hers did, I realized I needed a better lens than the kit lenses I had.
People said in order get that bokeh look, (shallow depth of field), look for a low f-stop and 50mm. Okay. I don't know what that means, but I know it was how to get that artsy look I wanted for my daughter. So I got this lens. It doesn't zoom, it just does bokeh and does it well. Sharp enough for my general purpose.
Got this with a clear circular polarized lens filter at 58mm diameter. Again, don't know what that means. Don't care. I know what it does. It's a picture gooderizer. It gives me much more natural contrast without being harsh. I notice it especially in my custom black and white settings. If you're a sound guy, it's like adding air to a mix with a clariphonic or Maag eq.
That's how I took the picture below. I'm now mad that I didn't do this years ago. I love taking pictures but I always used point and shoot cameras. Good ones, but there is no comparison.
You can spend more, but if you are a noob with an ASC sensor camera like the canon t series, this is your lane. If you are a pro, it's not a bad lens to have. Not too big or small, well built, and not so expensive you're scared to use if out doors or leave it on your camera around your neck. There's a smaller one, but splurge a little. Expect to become addicted to buying lenses and filters and budget accordingly.
Things that I had to get used to: It's AF is a tad slower then I would like, especially when I am taking pictures of little ones. It also isn't very sharp past 2.0, which for little ones or anything that could move on me I usually keep it over 2.8 anyways. Once you get used to any little things with this lens it will end up being one of your favorites.
Beyond the angle of view though, it's most commendable quality is the super-bright f1.4 aperture. This thing sees in the dark ! I hate using flash when photographing people indoors, and the f1.4 allows you to photograph in natural room light, particularly when coupled with my Canon 5D Mark III, which has excellent high ISO performance. At f1.4 you also get gorgeous soft bokeh which allows you to totally isolate your focal point, leaving the background to drop off into a pleasant blur. See the picture I uploaded for another great bokeh effect you can achieve from the 50mm wide open at f1.4.
Whether you're shooting with an entry level crop sensor Canon DSLR or a top of the line full frame Canon camera, or something in between, the 50mm needs to be in your kit. Most people buy the f1.8 version, which due to its very low price, truly is the "nifty fifty"; but why not go ahead and spend a few hundred bucks more for a lens that you'll use often and keep forever? You definitely won't regret the investment !
