Last Edited by annie930ny August 4, 2016 at 08:21 AM
At a glance:

Compact, lightweight fixed focal length lens ideal for everyday photos, and with a large f/1.8 aperture, a perfect lens for low-light photography and creative background blur.
80mm effective focal-length when attached to an APS-C camera, optimal for portraits and photos of fast moving subjects such as children and pets.
A stepping motor (Gear-type STM) supports the Movie Servo AF function in providing smooth and quiet continuous AF during video recording, as well as when shooting photos.
Improved exterior design includes new focus ring placement making it the most compact Canon 50mm lens.
Metal mount helps provide stability and ruggedness.
Optimized lens placement and coatings help deliver outstanding color balance, while minimizing ghosting and flare.
Circular aperture (7 blades) helps deliver beautiful, soft backgrounds.
Minimum focusing distance of 1.15 ft. (0.35m); maximum magnification of 0.21x.

It's been this price for a week or 2 but a good deal if you can get free shipping. The 24mm 2.8 refurb is also on sale for 99 which is 50 less than new. Good for aps-c since it's close to an effective 35mm focal length.

I'm using this lens now, great bokeh but on 70d crop, it's harder to use indoors. 24-30mm is probably easier

Got this lens awhile back. New for $90 shipped. Glad I didn't pass it up.

This is a great little lens! For awhile, this was my only lens.

No. Canon lens. May work if you get a converter/adapter?

Seems like everyone is taking your advice, queue is full, lol.

Just bought the yongnuo on Amazon, but I know this lens is so much better.

Anyone mind sharing their free shipping code? Either I'm blind or there is no chat window option.

Edit: Nevermind. Found the chat option on the product page.

No, you should really be looking at this instead for that camera:

This is a good lens (I think it's usually this price or close to - I bought it a month ago at this price). If you are using a crop sensor camera (most of the rebel series I believe) you may not like this lens much. I've found myself using my 24mm as my standard walking everywhere lens because the 50mm on my camera means I have to get too far back. I don't really like it for studio shots either - I feel really far away. I'm probably going to get a 40mm eventually to split the difference, but I'd definitely recommend looking at the 24mm if you have a crop sensor camera like I do.
