    Default Canon 50 1.4 second hand

    Ok I have just picked up a second hand 50mm Canon 1.4 (a bargain!) What might I expect in terms of quality on a 600D? I intended to use it in low light and for street images but perhaps others might have alternative suggestions in order to 'test' it out.
    Regards Paul

    ...first impressions were that the lens hunts quite a bit when focusing in low light. In better light it is far quicker.
    I appreciate that I am using it on a 600D and therefore not a full frame for which it was designed and therefore I may not benefit from the full capacity of a 1.4 at full opening. As a result there is a fair bit of noise at full stretch.

    the Canon 50mm f1.4 is soft wide open so stopping it down a little will give you good results
