Budget Prime?

Hi guys,

I'm looking to buy a relatively fast prime, to use for general low light shooting, and also for video mode shooting. At the moment I just have the 18-55 kit lens on the 550d.

I'm thinking of getting the Canon EF 50mm 1.8, it's cheap and looks pretty good review wise. The 1.4 is nearly 3 times the price else I'd get that for the better manual focusing.

I'd be interested in your thoughts, especially for video use.

Cheers guys
