Canon EF 50mm f1.4 USM for Canon XSi/450D
I have a Canon XSi/450D camera with the kit 18-55 lens. I bought the Canon EF 50mm f1.4 USM from Amazon yesterday (after reading the reviews and talking to a friend of mine who knows cameras a lot better than me.
One question I have is, while the kit lens 18-55 comes with Image Stabilization, why don't any of the 50mm lenses from Canon have Image Stabilization. I checked and even the L-series lens doesn't have IS.
Can someone explain to me why the 50mm lenses don't have IS built in ? This is just out of curiosity.
Thanks in advance
