closer to a normal lens on crop camera

I can't begin to tell you how much I love this lens. I wanted a FAST 50mm, but on my cropped sensor body, the cheap 50mm f1.8 acts like an 80mm (on a full frame)
I got this one because on a cropped sensor it acts as a 44.8mm
it is sharp, fast, quiet, and easily my favorite lens (I can't quite justify the cost of L series glass)

|fd3sgsxr||I still debating getting this or the 28 f2.8IS or 24 f2.8IS.|

at the same aperture, the depth of field will be much less with the 50 than the 28. check out a depth of field calculator and you will get a sense of the difference.
also, all of the Canon fifties tend to be a bit soft wide open and they don't really sharpen up until f2.8 or so. I've never had the 28, so I have no clue if it is sharp wide open or not.

I wish it was a 22mm like the EF-M, but for now this is a nice little combo to keep with us all the time.

Also, while we're at it, why not go a step further and get the Canon EF 85mm f/1.8? Why not pay a little bit more and pick up a 70-200mm f/4L?
You buy the tools for the job. While moving your feet may occasionally work, it's not a universal truth.
