In regards to the 50mm @ 1.8, actually with face detection, you might get away with quick casual snaps. But the focus system won't be perfect so you would still want to be a little careful if using wide open.

Face detection.

Is that what all the experts use?

This was in response to the op's statement

but who wants to be that meticulous when their doing family snapshots?

I'm not advocating face detection use (and I forgot about it being available in my initial response when I was saying using a 50 at 1.8 casually may lead to worse photos due to msifocused narrow dof shots) but if you're going to full auto it anyways, it actually may work ok with face detect.
