I bought this lens about a year ago near the time I bought me rebel t2i and I've used it to take great portrait photos! The auto focus is slow but the images are sharp and look great!

Thought a good purchase!
Bought this lens used it several times at first loved it for the money…I didn't want to invest a lot! Had for several months; but, did not use it a lot….probably 6 times...
Used again today and when trying to remove the lens it was stuck to my Canon EOS 60D….I thought my camera was done for….came home and after typing in my problem found lots of complaints with this lens and this problem on the internet.
This lens is now in the garbage from having to tear it up to get it off my camera. Placed the other lens back on and it works! Thank Goodness.
I have learned a valuable lesson!
I do love my Canon camera and ease of using it but this lens in my opinion is a NO NO.

Do Not Buy This Lens
This lens worked for three months before it started binding whe focusing. It got to the point where the lens does not move at all to focus.
It is all made of plastic. Go look at the higher priced 50mm lens and you'll see metal is used for the back of the lens versus the plastic in this one.
This lens is a throw away lens. Do yourself a favor and save your money and get the higher priced quality 50mm lens.

Incredible maximum aperture for a low price
We should know that the 50mm is what we see with both eyes opened, giving us the posibility for great portraits and difussed backgrounds when the aperture is completely wide open (f1.8).
