This EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Lens from Canon is a standard length lens featuring superb quality and portability. Its f/1.4 maximum aperture makes it very effective in low light situations and able to provide shallow depth of field focus. Two high-refraction lens elements and new Gaussian optics eliminate astigmatism and suppress astigmatic difference. Its ultrasonic autofocus motor (USM) enables fast, smooth and silent autofocus action and full-time manual focus override allows for the precision of manual focus even in One Shot AF mode.
- Standard focal length 50mm lens is effective in a multitude of shooting situations and ideal for day-to-day shooting.
- An f/1.4 maximum aperture provides clear imaging in low light situations and shallow depth of field.
- Ultrasonic autofocus motor (USM) operation is fast, smooth and virtually silent.

Canon produces some of the best lenses out there and this lens doesn't get rave reviews for nothing. That is why I ordered it.
Preliminary tests on 2015/05/06 proved it, but the proof will be in the pudding when I put it to use for some serious photography. I have no doubt, however, that it will be a good performer as I personally know photographers that use it on Full Frame and APS-C bodies. (I needed the lens for a serious photoshoot at the beginning of April already.)
This lens is much sturdier and heavier than the much cheaper f/1.8 Mkii. Overall it seems to be more robust and well made. I've owned the f/1.8 Mk11 and it is actually quite good for such a cheap lens.
