Those are the brightest AE's I've ever seen. I was debating the set from Bimmian or the racing dash type ones from the that you posted in (in the FS section).

Looking good!

My Wife got the same lens for Christmas... All the reading I've done has given it very good reviews. Seems like it is a favorite among the masses. Pics look great... keep it up.

I didn't get the 1.4 but have the EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lens ... there's quite a significant price diff between the two.. I'm sure the 1.4 is a lot better but even the 1.8 greatly improves the quality over the kit lens.

The. 1.8 is awseome, I got it the same time I bought my camera. Only real downside is build quality. The 1.4 seems to be a bit better in every aspect, and is worth considering upgrading to.

I've had both the 50/1.4 & 85/1.8 for years, and they are both very good lenses. The 85 is much faster at focusing on a moving subject, and sharper.

Unfortunately, both are a little tight on a 1.6 crop body, so I almost always use a 17-55/2.8is zoom instead. However, for the occasional tight portrait type of shot, they are hard to beat in the $500 price range.

Enjoy!

Ah... I miss my 17-55, I used it as a carry around when I was in Asia..
Now I'm using full-frame, 5dMK2 mounted on a 35L F1.4

I find that the 85L is too close if your using a crop-body, but amazing for portraits on FF.

I actually have the 17-55 on my crop, but was looking for something for the 5dmkII as well. I heard the 85 1.8 is very good. I just have to wait for the next visa cycle and BHPhoto has cheap shipping to Canada now and that it's $200 cheaper then Vistek

24-70 is great if your looking for something which your 17-55 had on your crop.

851.8 is good but I prefer L lenses

I agree with you about the L lens, but I can't afford the 1.2 right now. I just bought the 24-70, but wanted a nice Prime portrait lens, the 1.8 will have to do for now. I head it focuses a lot faster then the 1.2 in low light so that's make it a little easier of a decision as well.
