This is a great little lens, I know mine doesn't get much use anymore but I've always got a soft-spot for it. First fast prime (as I'm sure it was for a lot of people), but not only that, despite all my more expensive lenses, a photo from this lens got on the cover of a book:

Just got this lens a few weeks ago.. and took it to a couple of basketball games.  Over all I think it does quite well inside the gyms.  I am still learning on how best to use it though to get more shots in focus.

This is my favorite lens which would be my most favorite lens when I get the 6D.  Currently, it's the 28mm F1.8 due to the crop factor but I expect that this will be very much used when I get the 6D.  I love this lens for portraits on an APS-C.  If you can't get excellent shots from this lens, then you've got a problem.  No one can ever blame this lens for taking the best pictures even at the least price.


Here's some of my recent shots:

Keep the nifty-fifty alive.  :)  However, if they update this to 50mm F1.8 IS, I'll be thoroughly thrilled.  We need IS!!!  Sometimes it's the difference between getting ambient lights without getting your picture too noisy and not.

Very true..... unfortunately some would not agree, but IS is very important.....

Haven't had or used a 50mm in years (mostly a 35mm/ 85mm shooter), but after all the latest 50mm hype from Zeiss and Sigma, I decided to "invest" 70 bucks in this gem during Canon's recent refurb sale.
Ask me if I care about corner sharpness...
