I finally got around to buy a Canon 50mm 1.8 lens. It's the standard low-end Canon lens, that despite all of that is a real gem! It is super sharp, and gives you an extremely great depth of field. As you will see in the images that follow, this is a must-have for any photographer.
I am using this lens day in and out. It's a great lens to have with you, and I think it really helps in everyday photography.
