Canon 50mm f/1.8 II Lens Review
Updated Mar 19, 2009
The body of the lens is all plastic, even the lens mount. There is no real manual focus ring, to focus manually you have to turn the outer edge of the lens. Autofocus is fairly quick for a non-USM lens.
On my full-frame 5D this lens has the classic normal field of view I remember from my days of using 35mm film. It is one of my favorite lenses for general use.
The 50mm f/1.8 is so sharp, small, light, and inexpensive every Canon user should own one.
