Hi I am looking to get into potrait photgraphy, I recently bought the 500D. I was going to go for the 1.8 because I didn't want to invest too much until i had a full idea of what primes can do. I know that you get what you pay for, and the build quality isn't that good. But I have now heard there have been a number of instances where this lens gets stuck to the body. This worries me, while I understand the lens maybe fragile and break, which i can live with. But, I don't want to damage my brand new camera. I have also heard that the 1.4 has it's motor problems as well. Am I right to avoid these two lens and go for another manufacter ? Or do you think these are isolated incidents ?
