Good luck finding lenses with 0 negative feedback.

How did it pop out? By just holding it?
If only. It was mounted, XSI body on a tripod. I was taking a night shot and using the AF to focus, it attempted to focus twice and next thing I know, the front element separated from the plastic body and fell to the ground.

Mine has been on 3 cameras and I use it in a professional working environment where I am rotating it with other lenses quite a bit and it's never given me a moments notice nor would I trade it for anything else I absolutely love the "nifty fifty".

I liked mine for the short time I had it. (It's still in a bag). My daughter borrowed it, fumbled her T3 and dropped it! Yes, it poped apart in 2 pieces! I put it back in 10 minutes and it is functional, though not as smooth as it should be. Some day I will take apart and assemble according to online instructions. Fine lens, very sharp. Bargain worth having! Consider many new users may buy for low price only, and not treat as careful as they should. All optics are in need of TLC.

I have one that I use on all 3 Body's until I started to get Error on all Bodies cleaned contacts a few times and it now works , I have however snapped back together at least 4 50mm f1.8 II for friends and all but one worked like new after that one did not AF properly , all in all its a fun lens to shoot with .

I bought my EF 50mm f/1.8 II in early 2006 and it is still working well. It is mounted and unmounted frequently on several cameras. It has never stuck or fallen apart. I haven't dropped it or banged it on anything either. BTW, it makes a great loupe when used in reverse.
