The lens is great and definitely recommended. It gets pretty good reviews from just about everyone and is readily available in the For Sale classified section on this site.

Which begs the question for everyone here... this lens seems to be just about the most sold lens here, from what I can tell. Why is that?

I have a little suggestion. I'm fairly new to the forums here and DSLR's in general. I was thinking I'd eventually get the 50/1.4. This past weekend I sprung for the 50/1.8 and I'm very happy with it. I just find its a little too zoomy for me. With the 50mm on an XTi its the equivalent of an 80mm. I'm actually glad I got the cheaper one personally. It has shown me that I would prefer to spend the extra $$$ on something like a 28 - 35mm fast prime instead. I just found I didn't always have enough room indoors - walls get in the way. Anyways, something for you to consider.

Best suggestion I can make is to one up at a place you can easily return it/exchange it after a few days testing. I think that will give you a better idea what I'm saying and then you can decide if its for you or not. :)

Just a simple question. I gather that the "nifty fifty" everyone mentions is the 50/1.4!?

Nifty Fifty is the 50mm f1.8. It's around $80. The 50mm 1.4 is roughly $300.
