This 50mm is amazing. I truly love it. I debated a long time between the 1.8 and the 1.4. In the end, I figured I’d never replace it again so get the 1.4. I love it – the images it makes are staggering. Still – it’s pricy compared to the 1.8 – but not to L series lenses. I think it’s worth it. I read online it had barrel distortion wide open – and it does if you really study the image – but that’s perfectly OK with me for the 1.4 shallow depth of field. Normal people will never see that at all. One drawback you may not think of is that beautiful wide open 1.4 aperture is not available to you if there is much light. It’s so fast it’s easy to overexpose – even with 1/4000th of a second shutter. It takes awesome portraits – awesome landscapes. This is a must have lens in every EOS owner’s bag. Don’t get the 1.8 and wish you got this one. Get this one and start taking great photos.
