Pros:
Cons:
Other Comments: I purchased this lens to give our close up pictures that professional look. The low aperture of this lens allows for that great look, sharp and chrisp portraits with out of focus surroundings. I have greatly enjoyed this lens so far and have been unable to find the cons yet.

2 out of 5 stars   Defective lens with focusing problems.
By Sniper (Los Angeles) December 30, 2013
Review submitted for Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Standard + Medium Telephoto Lens for Canon SLR Cameras (CN5014USM)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Picture Quality And Speed
Cons: Poor quality control
Other Comments: I researched this lens extensively. I was aware of the auto focus failure but saw so many good reviews on amazon that I jumped. My copy was defective. It is amazing that canon knows about these problems but doesn't change the design or improve on their quality control. The issue with my lens is that it does not focus through the finder. Up close it rear focuses. Past 10 feet it front focuses. Very frustrating. I never had this issue with a canon lens. Thank goodness Buydig honors their exchange policy and I should be getting another one in the mail soon. One thing to be aware of is that this lens is not IS. This means hold it really still or tripod it on longer shutter speeds. I have to admit that IS has down right spoiled me.

4 out of 5 stars   Great lens
By Hair (Grand Forks, ND) December 21, 2013
Review submitted for Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Standard + Medium Telephoto Lens for Canon SLR Cameras (CN5014USM)
Verified Purchaser
Pros:
Cons:
Other Comments: Excellent image quality, and excellent for low light. A little soft wide open (which can be a nice effect in itself, if desired), and sharpness is very good when stopped down to f/2 - 2.8. As far as value for the money goes, it doesn't get any better.

4 out of 5 stars   nice low light lens
By Steve (Buffalo NY) December 01, 2013
Review submitted for Canon EF 50mm F/1.4 USM Lens 2515A003 w/ Filter Kit, Hood & Cleaning Kit (E1CN5014USM)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Cons:
Other Comments: I liked it as it made a big difference taking indoor photos. You have to zoom with your feet but you get a useable picture in low light conditions. The only dislike was with the non canon hood. It does not reverse to lower the storage height of the lens making it difficult to find a cheap storage bag.

5 out of 5 stars   Canon normal lens
By waterman (Chicago, IL) July 13, 2013
Review submitted for Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Standard + Medium Telephoto Lens for Canon SLR Cameras (CN5014USM)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Cons: Slow Focus, Not Durable
Other Comments: I have owned Canon 50 1.4 a couple of times, and each time, it approximately break about at the same area > AF stop working because I drop the lens. Last time, I didn't drop it hard, only on carpet and not high, but the lens is not very well built and just stopped working. I like the focal length and the price, but built quality is just so so. Picture quality is fine

By Geoff (Los Angeles, CA) June 03, 2013
Review submitted for Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Standard + Medium Telephoto Lens for Canon SLR Cameras (CN5014USM)

Pros: Lightweight, Easy To Use, Super fast, Durable, Consistent Output, Fast autofocus, Good Image
Cons: Plastic But High Quality, Vignetting At Large Apert, Blurry At Large Apertures
Other Comments: As other reviewers have stated, it's super blurry and vignetty in the corners at f/1.4. However, it is extremely sharp at 5.6 and higher, and the image is gorgeous. $1000 cheaper than the L version. Focusing and build quality is much higher than the f/1.8 version.
