Re: How about letting her decide?

I have the 50d and generally use my Canon 50/1.4 for portraits. As someone else posted it is very good indoors but a little short outside. I'm kind of picky when it comes to sharpness so I only use it down to 2.0. My copy is very sharp down to that aperture. It's a very cost effective for the quality you get IMO.

I also have a good copy of the Tamron 28-75/2.8 and while the center sharpness is pretty good to about f3.2 it can't compare to the 50/1.4.
