They say that every photographer should get used to shooting with a 50mm lens, especially when they are just starting out. And, as 50mm lenses go, the EF 50mm f/1.4 USM is one of those lens rentals you’ll definitely fall in love with. The mid-range offering in this focal length, the 50 f/1.4 boasts a super-wide aperture and a fast, silent, and accurate autofocus motor that’s much better than its more modest 50 f/1.8 cousin. While not as substantial in build as its much larger 50 f/1.2L sibling (that one is one of Canon’s ‘L’ lenses, after all), it’s much more solid-feeling than the f/1.8 and the autofocus is far more silent and quick. On a crop-sensor body such as the Canon EOS 7D or Canon T2i, this lens becomes an 80mm f/1.4, making it an excellent choice for portrait photography on that format.
