Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Standard AutoFocus Lens – Gray Market – Review:
GREAT BEGINNER PRIME LENS!
This lens has an excellent aperture (f1.8) for the price. It allows you to really control the depth of field when taking portraits and other settings where you want to have the background blurred or softened. The lens is cheap because it is made out of plastic. Even the bracket to mount to the camera is plastic. The manual focus ring is very small, about 5mm wide, or just a little wider than a polarizer filters’ ring.
This lens is sharper than the standard zoom lens that comes with the Rebel series (18-55mm). So if you are on a budget it is a great buy. I knew it was made out of plastic before I bought it, so I wasn’t surprised when i got it. I do not regret this purchase, because for what you get, you can’t beat this price.
