Hey there, I've heard a lot about the cheapest Canon lens money can buy, the EF 50mm f1.8... and that for the money theres apparently no excuse not to have it! I currently have a couple of lenses, one being the 18-55mm f1:3.5 to 5.6. Is there any benefit of my buying the other lens? And if so why? Because of the wide aperture? Is there an advantage to me getting thins lens, or would it be better to go to the f1.4 which is considerabley pricier, and why? Also in this lens I notice that there is a mark 1 and a mark 2, they look slightly different, but is the functionality the same? From watching a few on ebay the mark 1's seem to fetch more money, why is this? Excuse my sillyness I'm still very new to this. :blushing: Replies asap if possible... I got my eye on one at a good price if I can take it today.
