I take it back, it's not rubbish.

My 50/2 is 100% OK and I'm pretty sure it's typical based on the performance I've seen posted by others from other samples. I'm just not impressed with it in any way, it doesn't have any character or qualities that make me want to use it, but it's certainly an OK lens.

If you only have $15 to spend a lens then it will be fine, but I think most people can do better.
