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.

The f/1.4 setting takes simply beautiful photos but it's a bit prohibitive due to the extremely shallow depth of field. If I focus the lens on my dog's nose, her eyes are totally blurred out. This makes it a great setting for artistic use (especially awesome when capturing insects, flowers and other macro images) but not as useful when taking photos of people or scenery.
Crank it up to around f/2.5 or so - still below almost any other stock lens available - and the options explode. Kids, animals, bugs, flowers, wildlife - the photos are beautiful, the depth of field is still dramatic enough to assist with making your photo's subject stand out clearly against the fore/background and the lens still lets in enough light to take crisp, low-noise photos in low-light environments. It also has very little lens and color distortion compared to the lenses that came with my camera.
I strongly, strongly recommend this lens and shooting exclusively in RAW. The photos you get after a bit of post processing will be suitable for 3-5' wide canvas prints.
For the price, there's no excuse not to own this lens. Buy it and you're guaranteed to love photography even more than you already do.
FYI I have a Canon T3i body and until this lens used a stock/kit 18-55mm zoom and 55-250mm zoom lenses. Neither compare to this one, though I still have to use the 18-55mm when I need the wider angle (family shots indoors mostly). That's the only real "con" with this lens - which you know you're getting if you know what a 50mm lens is - it is very difficult to get complete shots indoors. This is not the lens you want if you're taking photos at a party or taking a lot of family photos indoors.
This lens doesn't replace a good quality wide zoom (I'm looking at you 17-40mm f/4L), and it would probably be replaced as a "walk around" with the standard kit lenses (24-105mm f/4 L IS or 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS for those on a budget). But if you want the 1.4 aperture and good overall image quality in a fixed length, this is a good decision all around. I recommend it. The difference in image quality between this and my L series is not as great as I would have imagined - which is to say, the image quality is quite good.
Ultimately, I found the focus of the 1.2f to be more unreliable. That lens back-focused constantly, and I lost great shots because of it. The 1.4f is much more accurate for the kind of work I do. It is baffling that the focus on this relatively inexpensive lens outperforms the L version, but I've seen the proof first-hand.
One final note - I'm often pretty abusive with my lenses - taking them to dusty and wet places. I was concerned that the lack of weather-sealing would be an issue. Three years on though, this lens has survived the rains of India and the dust of Afghanistan without an issue. Highly recommended.
And yes, I am a sucker for that dreamy bokeh.
