Anyone got one for decent, don;t wan tto risk buying new heard QC issues
i have a metal mount f/1.8 for sale...$140 shipped
sorry i would rather buy the 1.4
I just got the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II
what camera do you use?
Whats the difference between this and the 50 1.8's that are selling now for $80?
its built way better, it has a focus ring and a distance window
They took off .4
And I do have a 50 1.4, not sure if I want to part with it right now...unless you want to do a straight trade for a 35L
I would sell you mine, but I have one with "QC issues".
Focus is hit or miss, build is , has more PF than the 1.8 I had, and barrel distortion is very noticeable.
That being said, it's the lens I use the most
If you want to see some samples, check my kids site. I'd say 90% of the shots are with the 50 1.4. [ignore the gay text, its for my mom who lives a bit away from us]
50 + fool frame
I actually haven't even thrown it on the 5 ... doing some promo work for a band tomorrow, will throw it on...I want the 35L, 85L and 135L in my arsenal at one point...when I'm an old rich man...
I'll take a 24 1.4, 50 1.2, and 85 1.2.
50 1.2 scurrs me 85 L though....it is my dream... + 35L
i'd take 24, 35, 135 if i was full frame
what is your main goal? f1.4, sharpness, or what?
I'd rather not sell you a shit lens, but if you really want it, make me an offer.
I was happier with the 1.8 I had, so you may want to explore that option if that fraction of stop is not important to you.
like by buying mine for 140 shipped and paypal
I used to own the 50 1.8 mk1.. loved it
yea its really nice, but I really want a zoom in that range instead of a prime
sorry if it had different optics i would go for it, but i already have the plastic fantastic. 1.4 reasons: I prefer the bokeh, color and sharpness when stopped down. but i know its shit wide open. oh yeah and FTM focusing
It isn't shit wide open...it just has like .2 mm of the picture in focus
