Great fast standard 50

Excellent lens but now showing it's age. Canon really needs to give us a new one of these. Yet, I use it regularly for it's fast maximum aperture and nice out of focus backgrounds. I find I'm putting it into my bag more and more. It is very difficult to focus handheld at f1.4, you'll want to be very careful as there is little room for error. It's not super sharp in the corners at this aperture either. Often I find I'm shooting at f1.8 and if you're on a very tight budget I'd seriously considering the also very good 50 f1.8. Dirt cheap for professional quality. Great lens, but Canon needs a new one IMO.
