    Good lens, but I'd go with another

    To start with, this is a pretty good lens. It is reasonbaly fast, solidly built and a macro to boot. And it takes some pretty sharp pictures. However, as it is a series of compromises, it falls short in every category. 1. One of the reasons to buy a 50mm lens is they are blindingly fast. This one at f/2.5 is not. Pretty good, but the cheaper 50mm f1.8 is quite a bit quicker and cheaper (The cost of the filter for this lens). 2. As a macro, it works well enough. The exposures are sharp as can be expected from a prime lens. The only problem is they only get to a 1:2 ratio. In order to get true 1:1 this lens requires a screw on magnifying filter. The filter is around $100, making this lens a little more costly than you think Plus it is less flexible if you want to shoot something more than 4 inches away. Another downside is at 50mm, you have to get veeeeery close to your subject with the macro. Almost touching the lens close. You are more likely to scare off your insect subjects with this lens For around $50 to $100 more than the cost of this lens plus macro filter (depending on where you look), you can get the 100mm f/2.8 macro. This lens is what you really want. It is pretty fast for a 100mm lens and more versatile. It is useable as a pretty good portrait lens with great depth of field, and it does 1:1 macro shots with no extra filters. At 100mm you can get a few inches or feet farther back than the 50mm. Pros: All around lens. Relatively cheap by itself Cons: Not as cheap if you want really macro shots. Compromises. Summary: Don't get me wrong, you will be pleased with this lens if you do purchase it! If you are seriously into macro, and you will be once you play with this, you are going to want the better lens. So why not start off with it?

    When I first picked up this lens, I felt wrong about the purchase....it felt old and heavy, loud and clunky...but after I started to actually open my mind up to the features available to this lens, I quickly fell in love with its quirky style and unique abilities! This is my second 50mm (the first, the 50mm 1.8, was stolen), and I must say, I LOVE this lens far more than the first. It seems faster, is heavier, but only because it's built stronger, as well as better, and the macro settings blow me away. Yes, there is a learning curve with this lens, and too comes patience, but if you are patient with it, you will find that it is almost impossible to put down. I would highly recommend this lens to anyone looking for a great portrait/macro lens.

    I purchased this lens mainly to use in copying my vast library of color slides. Paired with Canon extension tubes, a competitors slide holder, and a decent light source, it works terrific! My Canon 5D III makes much quicker files since I don't have to wait the several minutes for a regular scanner to do its scan, and I can see the results on the cameras LCD screen histogram right away. In addition doing white balance for the light source is a cinch. Since both type of copies require final retouching in Photoshop, the Macro is a much better way to go. It's much less costly since you already own a DSLR! Of course it works fine for traditional pictures too! The lens has been unchanged for years, so brace yourself when you hear the sound of the focusing motor... its from the beginning of EOS so just marvel at the fact that it's still around. However, it still has metal filter threads, and the optics are great!

    If you are looking for a sharp 50mm prime lens that offers decent build quality and outstanding close-focus capabilities - the EF 50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro should be on your short list. This lens is a chameleon in versatility. Use it as a "half-size" macro that will catch every detail of small subjects. It doubles as a great standard prime and low-light performer. This is a great lens to place on your camera for a museum visit or a trip to your local botanical garden venue to catch subjects both large and small. The auto focus motor is a bit noisy, but extremely accurate in macro shots. As a "standard lens" focus becomes a bit slower, but stopped down to f/4-f/5.6 the superb sharpness and contrast is worth your patience. The EF 50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro is a great value at the given price point and well-worth consideration by anyone seeking a solid and versatile performer that won't break the bank.

    If you are planning to go for a 50mm lens, I would suggest this lens. It not only takes sharp pictures wide open, it is also well suited for all purposes from landscape and portrait to macro. Though it is not a complete macro lens still it fairs well with 0.5x magnification. I have used my friend's 50mm f/1.8, which is no where close to this lens. 50mm f/1.4 can be a good competitor to this lens but still considering the price and the macro ability on this lens, 50mm f/2.5 van be considered the winner. The only difficulty with this lens is that it hunts @ low light situation where I can't trust AF and I will have to go for MF. And the AF is quite slow apart from that this is one heck of a versatile lens. A best buy for the money without breaking the bank.
