Today I'm re-visiting a lens I reviewed years ago, a lens which I've probably used more than any other for so much of my photography. There's no doubt than any fast 50mm lens will be versatile, and get you great pictures...but is this older Canon lens design technically any good? My mission: to be as objective as I can!
