Ok price. If you want a fast 50 prime, check out the Yongnuo 50mm. It's just as good and at half the price!
No, it's really not. And even though this price is double, it's still only $50 more. It's not like we're talking about the Nikon at $175 or the Sony at an astonishing $250.

Nice price and every Canon DSLR photographer should have one. But this is an instant rebate from Canon, so the same price is available from most vendors: BH Photo, Adorama, etc.

Yeah no. I've had several copies of the canon, and tried a few of the Yongnuo and it's really not as good.

While a great lens, I would hold off if you have the R/RP. Canon is announcing a native f1.8 50mm for the RP platform next month. No need for the adapter that this would require on the mirrorless platform.

This Canon 50mm f1.8 STM is an amazing lens at a low price. I paid $99 for it quite a few years ago and it takes gorgeous pictures, especially portraits. The lens is also very sharp for landscape when stopped down. I also had the older non-STM 50mm f1.8 Mark II, which was way louder when focusing and not much cheaper.
The Yongnuo 50mm f1.8 Mark II has also received favorable reviews. The motor is louder than the canon version, but image quality is very good too. But with the canon version at $99, the price difference between the canon version and the Yongnuo version is getting small, ~$25, and I would go with the canon version.
For more expensive lens, such as 85mm f1.8, Yongnuo could be a better value option if budget is the limited.

This lens is a no-brainer for EF mounts. Takes excellent pictures and a huge upgrade to the kit lens. However, do note that you cannot use this on other mounts with manual adapters (i.e ones that don't have electrical contacts). This is because adjusting manual focus requires stepper motor to operate and when using manual mount, this lens won't get power to adjust the focus.
