Meanwhile, I have the more expensive model with metal mount. And I'm very happy with it! The plastic version is sufficient for boarding, but the old version can not be beat. Which comes from the quality of the work already rather 1.4er USM.
So if you want to spend a few euros more, and may be preferred to get the old version (about 100 to 130 €)
I'm sorry I can not write a perfect German (native Norwegians am) but this lens is simply so good that I want to tell everyone. I am one of the traumas that can currently only one objectively better than the kit lens. Photography is simply an expensive hobby. When I discovered that there was a 1.8 lens, sb for 100 € (and not more than 1000 €, like most others) then I bought it immediately. This is effectively a gift for all Canon photographers do what the want more than the kit lens 18-55, but it can not afford to buy the lens you want it so much. Canon EF 70-200mm
This objective can be no great difficulty shots make good in a bad light verhältnise. I have photographed this summer with this objective, and instead of my 18-55mm enteuschung the often gave me I'm surpised at how much color sharp, better and clearer the somehow making now. I've taken in many different environments and have my friends and family on ash can with good photos. I was particularly thrilled when I could see at a concert, I can not stand anything photografieren. I have my camera set to 1.8, and photographed. With ISO 1600 even at 1/1000 and can shoot more. And the photos were not kornig, and really little need for editing. This lens is also very good for macro and portrait. With 1.8 you get a very pleasant effect of focus behind the subject. It has simply become easier to make good photo with this lens. What I've fooled on Facebook this summer has sparked a storm of comments. And by skilled craftsmen (which I have asked for critical comments on lehrnen more) I got a very simple comment that belongs on the wall. Here, no postprocessing is needed. I thank the kan this lens, the best photos this summer with the kit lens Währe impossible.
