    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Powerful Output
    Cons:
    Other Comments: Got it on sale. Great lens, great price, worked as expected taking wonderful images with awesome Bokeh. Rarely do post processing as I have to do with all my zoom lense shots. I like using primes as it make you think more about your shot and gives you more options with the much larger aperture.

    Other Comments: I use it for close up portraits and the images are very sharp with beautiful light and vivid colors. The only thing I think was an issue was there were no instructions whatsoever. I've never used a lens like this before and it would have been helpful, but I guess the best way to learn is to use it.

    4 out of 5 stars   50mm 1.4 is the way to go
    By James Allen (San Diego) July 14, 2011
    Review submitted for Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Standard & Medium Telephoto Lens for Canon SLR Cameras (CN5014USM)
    Verified Purchaser
    Pros: Versatile, Easy To Use, Durable, Consistent Output
    Cons:
    Other Comments: Great lens, better than the 50mm 1.8 by Canon. Use it for video and stills, never failed me yet. Beautiful shallow depth of field, perfect for portraits and great cinematic style footage. Way better build quality than the 1.8, can feel the difference immediately (plastic vs metal). It's not perfect (nothing is), but it's better than other lenses that I've used. It does have trouble in really low light, even though it is tiny and is a prime lens. You may want to go manual sometimes, but that's not a problem because it has full time manual focus.

    5 out of 5 stars   "L" Quality
    By Jerry (Buffalo NY) March 01, 2011
    Review submitted for Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Standard & Medium Telephoto Lens for Canon SLR Cameras (CN5014USM)
    Verified Purchaser
    Pros: Nice Bokeh, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Exceptional pic quality, Strong Construction
    Cons: Not a macro, Soft at wider aperatures, Pricy, Foot zoom
    Other Comments: This lens definitely offers "L" quality pictures when the aperture is turned up to 2.8 and above. The quality peaks at 5.6F. Offers nice and beautiful bokeh. The construction is super, especially when compared to its 1.8 counterpart. Auto-focus is fast and very accurate. Some may miss the IS feature. Good for: * Portraits * Landscape * Night photography No good for: * Macro (although macro can be achieved by ext tubes) * Not a all round lens Other lens to consider: * Canon 50mm 1.8 (cheap and good) * Cannon 50mm 2.5 macro (if you are into semi-macro) * Sigma 50mm 1.4 (Pricy but great quality) * Tamron 14-50mm 2.8 non-VC version (in my wish list)

    Cons: Can't think of one
    Other Comments: I bought this lens after a LOT of research and reading other reviews. I thought about the 50mm 1.8 (a third the price) but mixed reviews about build stability and lesser materials made me want to spend the extra money. BOY am I glad I did. I LOVE this lens!! This is my go-to prime. Between this and my Canon 24-70 f/2.8 I almost don't need anything else. And it's GREAT for every day shooting--super light and a pleasure to carry. NO REGRETS!

    Pros: Fast, Shallow depth of field, Nice Bokeh, Good in low-light

From the bokeh to the low light performance to the central sharpness, not to mention you get all this for an excellent price (compared to the F/1.2L version). Don't think about it, just get it, it's that good. It motivates to develop my technique and composition skills!

    4 out of 5 stars   Great all-around fast lens!
    By StanFoxworthy (Rome, GA USA) November 16, 2010
    Review submitted for Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Standard & Medium Telephoto Lens for Canon SLR Cameras (CN5014USM)
    Verified Purchaser
    Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Compact, Durable
    Cons:
    Other Comments: All too often we forget about the humble 50mm 1.4, with all of the wonderful zooms, tilt-shift & macro lenses available to us. Since this mimics the "normal" angle of view that the human eye sees, most photos look more natural to the viewer. I find it very cathartic to just take time and work with as an only lens to be more creative with my composition and subject. It also has great bokeh and sometimes an unforgiving short depth of field if you're not careful! Being less than a quarter of the price of the 1.2, you might think the performance is lacking, but other than the non existent weather sealing it is still quite the value!

    Pros: Durable, Rugged, Lightweight, Strong Construction, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Consistent Output
    Cons:
    Other Comments: Love this lens! I use it all the time. The bokeh is beautiful, the DOF is shallow and lovely. Very fast at 1.4, and razor sharp both wide open or stopped down. Yes, the 1.8 in inexpensive, and a 'great deal;' Yes, the 1.4 is three times the price but it's worth every penny. It is my Must-Have lens.

    By Mike R. (Albany, NY) June 18, 2010
    Review submitted for Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Standard & Medium Telephoto Lens for Canon SLR Cameras (CN5014USM)
    Verified Purchaser
    Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Durable
    Cons:
    Other Comments: An essential addition to any Canon photographers kit if you don't have the grand to drop on the 1.2. Fast and accurate focus, good build quality. Miles above the 1.8 in every sense. The only issue I ever have is auto-focus in extremely low-light situations, but I know for a fact that this is a failure of the 5DMKIIs low-light focal ability and not the lens. With the addition of an AF-Assist Beam on a 430ex it focuses like a champ in ANY lighting conditions.

    Pros: Nice Bokeh, Lightweight, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Easily Interchangeable
    Cons:
    Other Comments: The lens was awesome for the first three days of use, but then it stopped focusing. I believe it was simply a manufacturer defect because my replacement hasn't given me any problems yet. [...] Besides the malfunction, this lens is amazing. I haven't had to light anything with the f/1.4 - it just lets in so much light.

    Pros: Nice Bokeh, Durable, Strong Construction, Lightweight, Easily Interchangeable, Consistent Output
    Cons: Slow Focus
    Other Comments: I bought this lens mainly for portraits and it has lived up to its great reviews. Focus is a bit slow and sometimes inaccurate, but when it runs smoothly the pictures are definitely worth the patience. I do wish that there was a focus line for more accurate manual focusing, besides that the lens is a great buy and worth the extra investment.
