How about the CANON EF 50mm f/1.8 II ? any cheap stabilized lens?

So I still am not sure If I should get the NEX-3N or 5R...

But, I just received my airmile statement, and, realized that I could get the CANON EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lens , "free" ...

I looked at some pics and stuff but I dont know if its a good lens, I saw some samples and although some reviews said the lens was sharp, it seemed to me it wasn't as sharp as some of the lenses I saw in Kuuan's really cool flicker set ... it seems to me like the OM Zuiko Auto-S f1.8 , Pentax A f1.7 and M f1.4 could be better...? Maybe some of the other lenses mentioned too like the canon fdn, takumar etc....

As a side note, does anyone know what would be the cheapest (used) stabilized 50mm lens one could likely find? Does it require the very expensive adapters to make the stabilization work?

Oh, and big THANKS for all the feedbacks!
