Erm.... not having a 50mm does not necessarily means you are not serious. Just buy what you need.

Depends on what you need but 1.8 is a fast lens in case you're shooting in low light.

50mm f/1.8 is a prime lens thats worth to start with......... then when you find its usefulness, go for the f/1.4. But I am fine with 1.8, so still sticking with it. Spend your money wisely, buy what you need and that you enjoy it. Cheers!

before buying it, must know the reason of getting it.

can those lens that you have shoot at low light?
Do u shoot at low light?


i got one (50 f1.4) because I shoot at home at night in the room with my kids.
Have also 85 f1.8.

at night conditions and at home- either 50 f1.4 or 85 g1.8 - i dont need to use flash.

go for 35 mm. that is closer to a normal lens. i blur, bought 50mm thinking it was a normal lens. but turns out that on a crop frame camera, it's a medium telephoto.

i still find it very useful as a fast lens though. but now i feel like getting a 35mm prime as well. had i started with the 35mm, i would not really feel the need for a 50mm. it's easier to go closer than to go further IMHO

I used to own it before upgrading.

-Yes it's a real value-for-money lens, cheap and sharp.
-I only used it mostly for portraitures and some street shoots.
