I am looking for a fixed focal length lens for my Rebel T1i ... maybe a 50mm? If you have one for sale (or another lens...) please let me know!
thanks

It will pay off for you to do your research here. There are at least 3 different 50mm lenses available from Canon (f/1.8, f/1.4, f/1.2). Though you might just be looking for a specific focal length, these lenses vary greatly in their quality, chromatic aberration, vignetting, and bokeh. Maybe none of this matters to you, but the price differences will range from $100-$1500.

thank you! yes, I am somewhat limited by budget at this point..so while I'd love to have a super high-end one, it is not happening right now.
thanks for the link...

The 50mm 1.8 mkII is probably the best deal in primes anywhere. Just curious why you want a 50mm in particular?
