The main difference with the 50/1.8 I is that the mk I (now discontinued) had a metal mount. The mk II has a plastic mount to reduce the cost, but the optical formula is the same, so they're basically the same lens.
Canon's 50/1.8 has earned the nickame 'nifty fifty', because for such a cheap price it's probably the best lens you can get.
