abunda_amazon_reviews I haven't had a need to take out the 15-45 mm kit lens which came with my M50, since I bought this lens. The kit lens was so-so.. as to be expected from a kit lens. Since the price point on this lens wasn't that high, I decided to give it a shot. And it has been totally worth it. With the f2 fixed aperture, the lens is so fast and crisp, even in low light conditions that you don't miss the IS at all. The AF focuses fast and you get nothing but crisp pictures. It has delivered like a champ for both landscape pictures and low light situations with fast moving subjects.. like little kids. The nice soft bokeh that the lens produces is reminiscent of other high end primes. So, if you own a Canon mirrorless, this lens is a must in your collection. Now if Canon would only make more primes for the EF-M cameras!;;Reviewed in the United States on April 28, 2018;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Perfect little lens.
