Which 50mm do you prefer?
May 17, 2012

On a FF body, whch 50mm by canon do you prefer out of these two and why?

50mm 1.8 MKI (metal mount/distance scale/rubber focus ring)
50mm 1.4

Who prefers which? and Why? do you think the $185 price tag used on the MI is of the same quality as the $360 dollar 1.4?

ps. please no recommendations of any other lenses.. just wondering which of these 2 lenses people prefer to use of FF and what they like and dislike about them both.
