Generally priced at ~$130 and below from pretty much every Canadian retailer this lens is worth the money. The larger aperture is great for night photography and it allows me to take handheld night pictures with at least some moon/streetlight, with a correspondingly high ISO, without the need for a flash. Additionally the larger aperture can allow you get a much shallower depth of field than other lenses providing you with greater versatility.

The image quality is also very good for the price. This certainly won't compare with more expensive lenses but for the price it's certainly a tremendous value.

If you need a cheap lens that will allow you to shoot at night or do some photography with a very shallow depth of field and you don't want to spend a ton this is certainly a must buy.

I did not expect such quality for such a low price! And quite frankly, I did not believe all the reviews praising the product. But now that I own it, I am VERY happy with my purchase. I use it with my Canon Rebel T3 and it takes professional-like photos. I tried it under very low-light condition (nothing but one light) and it was surprisingly clear and not blurry. In the morning, I took hand-helded selfies that offered an interesting result with the smallest aperture. Evidently, it was a close-close-close-up and the quality is so great that you could see the blackheads on my nose (ughhh!) and all the colour details of my blue eyes. Go ahead, buy it! For the price and for such quality you cannot go wrong.

For the price i payed, it's an awesome lens, works well and takes better pictures then any zoom lens i've bought for 3 times the price. Only thing with mine was when i go into manual the focus wheel doesn't turn as smoothly, my friend bought the same lens and his works perfectly though

This lens is amazing for the price.
I was a bit worried when I first saw it because it does feel a little cheap, but it takes seriously amazing pictures! For the price, you cannot complain. I use it mainly to take portrait pictures, you can take portrait pictures without a flash indoors.
Most of my baby pictures have been taken with this lens and I seriously don't regret my purchase.
I recently purchased the canon 60mm usm macro lens that double's up as a portrait lens, but I still find myself using this one for indoor situation because its much faster and easier to use.

The only down size is that the focus ring is a little flimsy and hard to use, so I mainly use it on auto focus. The auto focus is really fast on this lens, even under low light situations.

This is a great lens, especially for budding photographers on a budget. I'm currently a med student and sold my soul to pay for my tuition, but this lens is well worth the 100 bucks I could have spent on my groceries instead. It's crisp, made sturdy, makes for some beautiful pictures. It was the first lens I bought on top of my kit lens and I recommend everyone do the same.

I'm a ''starting'' amateur photographer, and for people like me who doesn't have the money for 1000$+ lenses or 10k for a full photo kit, this is a must have! Great quality pictures, and works like a charm with my T5i.

It's the quintessential inexpensive prime for Canon. I've borrowed them before so knew what I was getting. Mine was $118 shipped through Amazon Canada, which was cheaper than through Amazon USA. Made in Malaysia.

The prime lens with large aperture do take some photography adjustment, because the depth of field is very shallow at low F values. It's worthwhile to study depth of field and the impact of different F stops.

This is my one of my go-to lens for portraits! It is on my camera about 75-80% of the time! I bought this about 6 months ago, and it is worth every single penny. I find the construction to be pretty cheap, but I can't really complain because of the price. I dropped it 3-4 feet on a hardwood floor and it has been shakier since, but still usable! I am only waiting to get it into my budget and I will buy the 1.4 version as I have heard that there is a HUGE difference! It is great in low-light situations and gives a nice bokeh effect when used at the lower aperture. I still find that my 85mm 1.8 gives a crisper image, but it is about 4x the price! All-in-all, I would recommend this lens to anyone looking to expand their lens collection for street and portrait photography!
