Owner reviews: Canon EF 50 mm f/ 2.5 Compact Macro
Compact, very high image quality from wide open, perfect as a portrait lens on APS DSLR cameras, nice to use and handle, excellent value for money.
Older AF a bit noisy.
I have used many different lenses over the years. This is my personal favourite as it delivers great bang for the buck considering the low price for a pukka macro lens from a major manufacturer. Very sharp and I use it as portrait lens on my DSLR and its great for close ups of flowers and small objects. I love the handling and feel of this lens. I bought mine on Ebay for £160 but I have seen them new for as little as £200.
Good and Sharp for macro and product photography when You start .
Long tube on 1:1,
Autofocus problem when You have not enought light ( checked with Canon 5D Mk II )
Good price to value at begining with macro and product photography
