I wouldn't worry too much about the warranty on a $75 lens. The nifty fifty in popular for a reason and should be in any beginner's photography bag.

Would you know if this build is any better than the US version? This looks more compact than the one I bought years ago.

This should absolutely be the first lens any starting photographer on a budget buys. Personally, I think it should be the bundled kit lens, but I understand a lot of people would have a hard time understanding a sharp lens vs having a little bit of zoom and not getting why a fast lens would be important.
This isn't the best prime lens around. Not even close, but it damn sure is the best lens in this price range.

Agreed. I never buy bundles. But, if Canon or others put out a bundle with a couple primes (50mm, 85mm, or similar) I'd consider it.

I love my nifty-fifty. Other people are correct- no worries on the warranty with being international (grey market).

It is a great lens, but don't expect to shoot at 1.8 and get great results unless you really know what you're doing. I've tried taking wrestling photos at 1.8-2.0 to get the desired shutter speed and any movement forward/back after you focus, you're practically going to be out of focus. It's absolutely great for portraits or other static shots.

You're probably thinking of the older Canon 50mm f/1.8 II, which was very plasticy. They updated it with the STM model to more closely match their other EF lenses to not be so cheap feeling.

I don't know- I've been really happy with my bundled t4i and 18-135 STM bundle. That lens with its IS and good range has barely come off my camera.

They did actually change the design of the lens a few year back. The one you have might be the 50mm 1.8 I or II rather than this one which is the STM model. They improved the build quality, focus speed/noise, and minimum focus a tad bit.

If you have a Canon 50mm f/1.8 that looks different than this one it probably means you have the older version. There isn't a difference in build between US or international versions. The newer version is built better than Canon's old nifty fifty. It also has faster and more accurate autofocus (also quieter), more pleasant bokeh, and improved sharpness.

I've had DSLR's since 2005. Everything from my first Rebel XT to a 5DII. And lenses from the dreaded 75-300mm and L glass. I gladly trade zoom for prime sharpness and speed. But, the newer zooms aren't bad. But, just a different tool that does fill a need at it's price point. That's why the 50mm is so good. And at this price, how can you NOT have it in your bag?
