Amazing lens, you will not regret buying it.
November 10, 2017
What can I say? There is a reason this lens is so popular. The difference in quality/sharpness if this is your first prime lens is mind-blowing. It's hard to recommend this lens highly enough at the price.
The focal length is super-versatile although remember that if you are on an APS-C body this lens is more like an 80mm than a 50mm. For a close-to-50mm focal length check out the 24mm pancake lens instead (which will work out to about a 38.5mm). Even the 40mm will overshoot the 50mm length.
This being said however, this lens is definitely one of my top 3 lenses and I use it all the time for all kinds of shooting. You will not regret buying this lens.
