I finally gave this lens a try tonight, and I'm really pleased with it on my 6D. Here is one of the first shots wide open-

I ordered the hood for this lens on the same day I bought the lens (about a month ago, now). I just called the camera shop and asked them what the status is and they claim it is still on backorder and will likely be another 2-3 weeks. Anyone know what the deal is with the hood? Am I the only one waiting this long or has Canon not released it yet?

B&H has them in stock right now. If they run out of stock you can get notified when they are in stock again.

I used the 50mm f1.8 STM in my recent studio shot. Worked really great!

It's amazing every time I remember this thing only costs $125. Is there a better value lens out there?

I have loved every one of the sub 200 STM lenses I have gotten lately. The 24 is awesome, the 40 was great, and the 50 is just as good as its always been with some improvements....its nice to spend under 300 on a set of decent lenses.

The classic Canon Trinity is a fantastic sharp bargain package now. It was great before the STMs but now they are all nice upgrades (STM 18-55 / 55-250 / 50).

Finally received my lens hood in the mail today also, looks great and gives the whole package a much better look imo. The locking mechanism is a great touch also.

I see a blog post from Roger Cicala at Lens Rentals testing copy-to-copy variation of ~50mm lenses and for consistency/lack of variation the STM (the cheapest of the bunch) beat all comers and by a decent margin.
