I have a Canon 550D and I am using the Kit I 18-55mm lens.
As I like to take portrait photos, I'm thinking of getting myself a portrait lens. Somebody recommended the EF50mm f/1.8 II to me. Has anyone used this before?
Do you find it good for portrait photos? FYI, I am still a student and I don't have the budget available to buy expensive lens right now. The maximum I would be able to spend right now is around $200. Maybe if I am really impressed with the results of a particular lens, I would go to $300. But that's it, not more than $300.
That's why I am thinking of the EF50mm f/1.8 II as a potential investment.
What are your views on this for portrait photos?
