Re: How good is the EF 50 f1.8 II


50 1.8 II is very good: light, affordable and sharp.

From my experience focus is not an issue (Though I used only one copy of this lens).

I use this lens extensively and really like it.

The only issue with it is the focal length on crop - great for portrait - but nowhere near "normal" lens. Prior to buying check the 35 mm - it might suit you better.

BTW - for me I took the Tamron 17-50 non VC - sharp, affordable and covers the range I needed.

Good luck
