Hi i love my 50mm f1.8 mkii its a fantastic piece of kit for an amazing low price
i got mine for £75 from http://www.digitalrev.com/product/canon-ef-50mm-f-1/NTgy. It is a must for every kit bag and having being an f1.8 its grea for shooting off the hip or in low light.

It pretty much sucks in low light, which is quite ironic. Its Achilles' heel is slow and erratic focus especially in low light. For the price it's decent and in some situations even good. When stopped down it's super sharp but the colors, contrast and bokeh leave a lot to be desired.
