Selling Canon 50mm f1.4 to buy...Canon 50mm f1.4
Quote:I am a little confused... if this lens model has a known issue, why even consider it not for the first, but for the second time?


A Sigma 50/1.4 EX may be a better choice, let alone one of the modern units (Sigma 50/1.4 A, Tamron 45/1.8...)

Because Canonverse seriously lacks a decent 50mm. 


-Sigma EX is huge and AF is unreliable 

-Sigma ART is even bigger and AF is still unreliable

-Any version of 50/1.8 EF will have unpleasant bokeh

-50/1.4 is mediocre, just like any 50/1.4 design from 80s/early 90s but it's also the most fragile one of them all (Sony/Minolta/Nikon etc.)

-50/1.2 is not that great of a performer, people usually buy it out of frustration after dealing with the other Canon 50mm. At least this one won't break, right?
