Default Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II - Nifty Fifty (B)

"B" rather than "2" since it's a successor thread, not a new mark.
Original thread was here.

Since it's a constant 50mm, is there a minimum handheld shutter speed to consider?

My first foray intonthis lens a year ago produced a lot of blurry images and a few good ones.

Yep. Without IS, you need steady hands and good technique to get good clean shots. I try to stay at 1/80 or faster. I think the rule of thumb is 1 / focal length x crop factor. On my T1i, that basically means 1/80 or faster. With steady hands and good technique, you might be able to pull off 1/60 or 1/30.
