Why I sold my Canon EF 50 mm f/1.8 II Lens
“I sold my nifty 50. Yes, I did” . I was not using it, not because I don’t want to but because I can’t. The reason for not using my Nifty 50 is simple. The build quality of the lens is simply not for professional use. I feel that it will fall apart during a shoot while changing lens. As reviewed earlier the weakest part of the lens is the plastic mount.
So I sold it . Now I m awaiting for a new 50mm. I have shortlisted this new Sigma 50mm 1.4 DG HSM Auto focus lens or the Canopn EF 1.4 from Canon.
But before the 50 … The 85 mm 1.8 is on my wishlist. Till then I ll use the 50m focal length from the 17-50mm f2.8 Tamron.
