I use my 50 1.4 at 1.4-1.8 frequently with my 6D. I often shoot in TV mode and vary my S S as needed.
AF -ai servio work well for me at wide apertures.

So you're agreeing with me that you aren't shooting as fast as possible then? I'm not really sure what I'm not really sure what the take away from your post is suppose to be...

Could say the same to you for your response to my post.

I should probably say why I said why shoot in TV over AV considering it caused a bit of a riot LOL. I was talking specifically for this case. Maybe I haven't learned something properly, but I wouldn't be shooting things on a table (as he said he was) in TV mode.

Maybe I missed something though?

"Kanye," much like the rapper himself, apparently thinks that his way is the only right way to do things. Some people don't like to shoot manual exposure, manual focus through a tiny DSLR viewfinder with no split prism and actually take advantage of technological improvement. Tv has its uses, though for my purpose I prefer Av most of the time. Now can we get back to talking about how bad the Canon 50 sucks and when version II is coming out? ;)

dude what are you talking about?

kanye was answering shutter attacks question of "Confused at why one would be shooting at TV? Try AV." with a question of "for fast action?"

then for some odd reason vengence decided that nobody in their right mind would use TV for fast action(for some reason he assumes that for fast action you must only use the fastest shutter speed possible)

vengence is the only one talking about using the fastest shutter speed possible, everyone else is talking about using a certain shutter speed...

at no point does kanye say how his way is the only way/right way...he never even told us what way he shoots...

Agreed. I asked a very normal question. I was immediately attacked out of extreme context.

It's because I'm Black.

There, I said it.

Okay, what does that have to do with the way you conduct yourself on the boards, or how others reply to what you post? ???

It has nothing to do with it. Thank you for yet again taking my post out of context.

Kanye out.

Are you delusional? You came into this thread with random opinions that had absolutely nothing to do with the OP's problem...

EF 50mm 1.4 sucks. My manual Takumar out does it everywhere. Sharp as ****!

Sold mine and got myself a REAL lens.

See my signature.

It's because you're oblivious and opinionated... there, I said it ;)

Opinion? It's in writing, here on the thread and plain for everyone to see... how is that an opinion? The second part of what I said, maybe, the first part... most certainly isn't.

Also, "Q.E.D." further solidifies my point ;)

OPs bewildering question:

How do you explain such poor performance of 50/EF1.4 in day light? Either my Rebel XS censor degraded after three years or I've got a bad lens.

My input

EF 50mm 1.4 sucks. My manual Takumar out does it everywhere. Sharp as ****!

Sold mine and got myself a REAL lens.

See my signature.

Please, it's not rocket science.

Please, it's not rocket science.

Did you read the rest of what his "problem" was? OP was expecting the lens to produce brighter photos than his other lenses, even when it was stopped down... how was your input in any way shape or form helpful? The problem had absolutely NOTHING to do with his lens, it had everything to do with how he was taking the shot.
