    i can only find 1 50mm macro and it is the one posted fstop of 2.5.
    if the one you have has a fstop of f1.8, f1.4 or f1.2 it is a 50mm prime lens, the 50mm f1.4 sells for R3400, the f1.8II for R999 and the 50mm f1.2 L usm sells for about R15k new.

    Ross, read my earlier post, I never used this lens hence not knowing full spec... If u think this is dodge, don't post anymore on this thread....:thumbup: Here is spec: on the lens rim it reads: Canon Lens EF 50mm 1:1.8 (& a roman numeral 2) - 0.45m/1.5ft. Again, apologies for posting incorrect spec..... Anybody that has use of this lens, make me a decent offer....

    Then it is the normal 50mm, you should look for R500-600

    Haven't got a clue:lol: thats why I'm sellin it. Bought the camera with 2 lens, this one & a 55-200.... tried taking couple pics with the 50mm last night.....I'm no photographer but it seems to have a very small focus radius if that makes sense & I find it difficult to actually focus on what I want to shoot.... maybe a pro knows how to use this lens.....

    The main difference between the fixed 50 and your zoom is the aperture. The prime has a large aperture (low f-number) which means faster shutter speeds. And as Gman has said, harder to focus since the depth of field is very narrow.
