Is a nifty fifty embarrassing to use on a 5d3?

Why would it be embarrassing to use on a 5d3? (or any camera?)

Let the photos do the talking, not the gear.

Then why would you need a 5D mk III?

It's not emberassing to use it, it's just *unwise* to put it mildly. Invest in glass, not camera's.

Each lens has it's own character. Same as different musical instruments have different sounds. If you want a certain sound you choose the instrument which gives it to you, regardless if it is cheaper than another.
I have taken some lovely portraits with my 50 1.8, some are are a bit soft, but that works well for me, I don't want to see every blemish in exquisite detail. No matter what other lenses or bodies I buy in the future, I will keep my 50 1.8 as I might want to get that certain flavour I get with that lens.
Just as I wouldn't throw out a 15 year old classic guitar just because I got a new electric.
It's all about the photos you take, not what people think of you as you take them.

I'd use it just for the fun of it haha, I mean who is REALLY going to say any thing to you when you have it mounted to a $3500 DSLR? That's more then a lot of peoples whole kit.

I wouldn't. Aesthetically I think it would look better than the pancake lens on the 5D III.

Guys... This isn't car racing...

You don't pull up to the railing of Yosemite Falls next to other photographers and rev up your focus rings at each-other...

Just use the lens and take good photos!

:lol: well actually, if that were the case, the 50 1.8 would win by a landslide. It's got a crazy loud focus ring ;)

I'm actually kind of tempted to buy one again.

I for one am very curious what the results are like as I am planning to go that route. I am pretty sure it is fantastic.

So, does it vignette on a FF? I heard someone say it did, but didn't show me proof.
