Well I finally got my Canon FD 24mm 2.4 SSC and I love it!!! So much so that I'm going for my next lens on the list right away, the obligatory, venerable, 50mm.

I would love to get your comments on your favorite 50mm and why? Sharpness, lowlight, bokeh... you decided what makes it your favorite.

You could grab an old manual lens for your 50mm, but I would suggest checking out the SEL50f18. Between the OSS, AutoFocus, and super sharpness it is very hard to beat for the price.

You can find some old manual lenses about as sharp, and they might not control flare or CA as well, and definitely don't have OSS or autofocus.
