Fora prime less than $500 - EF 85mm F1.8
In reply to cheapa55, May 17, 2012

It's better built, sharper, and faster focusing than the 50mm F1.4. Don't bother with the cheap 50 F1.8 it's only sharp in the center on full-frame and is way too cheap.

Of course, the 85mm is longer than a 50mm, but I like tight crops of the subject.
