Need Advice on Canon's 50mm f/1.8 Mark I Prime Lens

Hi all,

I am thinking about buying a used 50mm f/1.8 Mark I prime lens - the one with metal lens mount. I think I've heard about it being sharper & better built than Mark II (the one with plastic lens mount), but would like to get more feedback from you all before making a final decision.

Thanks, and wish you all a Merry Christmas!!

Alan
