ICanon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM picked up a used copy of the on eBay in 2012. Something about it just left me...I dunno... underwhelmed. It was light and smaller than the big "L" version of the 50mm, but not as small as the itty bitty 50mm f/1.8 (nifty fifty). It wasn't very sharp toward the wide end. It was better stepped down to f4 or greater, but if it not really usable wide opened, then why not just use the 50mm f/1.8 and shed some weight. I mean, in my opinion, shooting wide opened makes owning and using a fast prime worth it. Otherwise... forget about it. I tried to like this lens, I really did. But in the end... it just didn't work out.  I think I sold this? Maybe I still have it? If I do, I haven't made any effort to go find it. Anyway... I last used this in late 2019
