Opinions on 50mm f1.8 Mk II as value for money
Nov 23, 2010

I'm considering buying this lens as a present for a Canon-wielding friend - at the moment they don't have a fast prime.

I use Nikon myself so would very much appreciate users' owners' opinions on this lens.

I'm assuming optically it should be pretty sharp in the centre past f2 - 2.8? Are there any significant downsides to this lens?

The person I wish to buy it for has a 20D - do you think this would be a good combination?

Thanks for any advice you can give
