Standard lens featuring superb quality and portability. Two high-refraction lens elements and new Gaussian optics eliminate astigmatism and suppress astigmatic difference. Crisp images with little flare are obtained even at the maximum aperture.

Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Lens is rated out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pat69 from Excellent lens I have no issues with this and it focuses great, how can all these people and other reviews I've seen say the focus is hard to get to work great? I don't have years of experience yet I can get amazing shots with this lens on my rebel t6i which has an aps-c sensor

Rated 5 out of 5 by victoriak from Excellent results for a very good price. If you are looking to get that blur in your back round for portraits, this is the lens you can buy for next to nothing and create beautiful shots with. Highly recommend for those with not a lot of cash to spend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Scheherazade from One of my essential lenses I'm an amateur photographer who shoots a lot in indoor, low-light conditions without flash. (I often take photos for semi-professional opera productions and music concerts, which are usually staged in churches and often lack proper lighting.) This is one of my standard lenses, because it's small, light, and FAST. With a maximum aperture of f/1.4, this lens lets me capture those split-second moments on stage, and it's great for shooting handheld, where motion blur can be such a problem. Its shallow depth of field also makes it good as a portrait lens, since it isolates the subject nicely. The lens is a little soft at f/1.4, but much sharper stopped down. An 8-blade aperture creates a good bokeh, or image quality in the out-of-focus areas. It's noticeably better than Canon's cheaper 50mm f/1.8 lens, which has only five blades and creates harsher blur; though I understand Canon's premium f/1.2 lens surpasses this one, as you'd expect from its much-higher price. The Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 features a micro-USM (ultrasonic motor) AF drive -- including full-time manual (FTM) override in one-shot AF mode -- so it focuses quickly and quietly. The USM drive is not included with Canon's cheaper 50mm f/1.8 lens.
