    I need to tell someone that actually cares... lol
    My family thinks it is a waste when I already had a perfectly good $60 kit lens. :mrgreen:
    Here is a quick micro of it. It came with a Polarizer Filter.
    It's a Canon 50mm f/1.4-22 Ultrasonic :thumbup:

    I was using it earlier today, it's an awesome lens! Silent and fast AF and it's very crisp and clear. Definately worth the money.

    nice!!! my mom has(d) a 50mm 1.8 for her nikon d100, but i took it and have yet to return it because it is so crisp as opposed to a cheap lens as well

    have fun! :D

    You probably dont want something as wide as a 50mm for a portrait. go with at least 80 or 100. a 50mm will enlarge and distort facial features towards the middle.

    I got it for $250
    The lens is in perfect condition and the guy sent it to me priority mail so it could get here before I leave for Germany. He was very nice and he also paid both the shipping fee and the Paypal fee.

    I got it from a member on the Canon Digital Photography forum.

    Hope that answers your question! :)
