This is the lightest EF lens of all at a mere 4.6 oz. (130g). Compact and high-performance, standard lens. Its Gaussian optics provide sharp delineation from near to far focusing distances. The color balance is excellent for a standard lens.

I have been a professional photographer for thirty years. I know quality, and this lens really falls short of SHARPNESS. If you're looking for a 50mm lens from Canon, you either have to go for the 1.2 or the 1.8. I bought this lens trying to save some money and am thoroughly disappointed. It is not sharp. I tested it against the 1.2 and 1.4 and there is absolutely no chance of it competing. Do not buy this lens unless you are satisfied with mediocre images.
