Is this worth it? I don't have a standard prime lens, and am a poorfag. Need something for portraits.

Do you have a FF or crop sensor?

Either way, though, that's a pretty good deal, you might as well go for it.

I would personally recommend the STM version (as opposed to this, which is the II version).
The STM has a closer minimum focus and a faster motor. It does have an electronic focus wheel though (meaning that you can't change the focus when the camera is turned off, but it's also not mechanically connected to the focus motor), which has its advantages and disadvantages.
And yeah, gear thread.

Meh. You'll get what you pay for. I've used it, and it feels realllly cheap. But on a budget its alright.

Auto focus is surprisingly good. But the lens is really soft.

Personally I'd save up and get something that'll last.

its still a good value but canon's newish 40mm pancake is much better for the long haul. its much sharper (among canon's sharpest lenses ever made), obviously much smaller and more professional, less obtrusive and obvious, and has a very fast AF motor. al of these traits are much more valuable than bokeh.

the only thing the nifty fifty has over the 40mm pancake is the 1.8 compared to the 2.8. but youll learn quickly enough that using the largest aperture possible is gimmicky and the extra stop of light wont save a poorly lit photo. not to mention the 50 isnt even sharp until it hits f/4 anyhow.

you can buy the 40mm refurbished for $150. its a no brainer.

I actually have that lens for my xsi. It suffers from some barrel distortion I think at the lowest aperture and it's fuzzy around the edges. Probably would be decent for you.

It's still probably my favorite lens I've ever shot with

Great for snapshitting around and 1.8 really gives you those needed extra stops in low light situations, especially since canon usually suffers from high noise on the higher ISOs

Also dat bokeh

Not OP but I will say this;

Have you used that updated 50? I hear it has a stepper motor and focus-by-wire. I hear that focus-by-wire is okay on SLR lenses.

I have ample experience with mirrorless FBW lenses and really hate it. I much prefer mechanically coupled focus. If this new 50mm has a wire then I would be wary.
>>
>>2763314
yes

then after you do that go buy dozens of $20 vintage manual lenses along with a $30 adapter

then you only need to pay $20 each time you want to dick with a focal length

>go to pawnshop
>randomly find f2 200mm for $15
alright
>>
>>2763314
Can you be slightly less of a poorfag and save up to $300 (cheaper if used at like https://www.keh.com/shop/canon-ef-50mm-f-1-4-usm-standard-medium-telephoto-lens.html )
Then please do yourself a favor and get the 1.4

The focus ring on the 1.8 is absolute, unremitting trash and horrible to use. There's the plastic build to the 1.8 too which is just meh (not bad, but I don't like the feel). The focus ring is the absolute deal breaker for me because there will be times you will want to manually focus and the 1.8 is BAD for that.

For a little more money, you get a far better build quality, slightly faster lens, and a useable focus ring.

If you're a poorfag whose gotta do what a poorfag's gotta do, then yeah, 1.8 it.

I own all three of the EF 50mm f/1.8s (OG, II and STM). The STM is by far the best of the three, in every circumstance in terms of sharpness, Bokeh (7 rounded aperture blades). flare control and overall IQ.

But for manual shooting, the 1987 OG version gets that gong (STM has focus-by-wire/bad for manual focusing).

Honestly, there is no reason why you have to settle for the II version, which has the same IQ as the OG version, but shittier build quality and just completely inferior compared to the STM version, considering the $20~30 price difference between the two.

The silent STM auto-focus is a Godsend (again, except for manual shooting).

tl;dr; STM > OG MK I >>>>>>>>>>>>> SHITTY MK II

I don't think it was that bad, a bit jumpy and dry but not terrible

. I don't even shoot Canon I was just chiming in that newer doesn't always mean better. I shoot the Nikon 50 1.4G and I wouldn't trade it for any stepper motor focus by wire gizmo; not unless major changes have been made recently.
