    The best 50/55mm prime is this one:

    However it is (probably) well out of your price range (and most everyone else's!)

    The 50/1.8 from Canon is really cheap and optically very good but it is very noisy when focusing.

    I'd recommend the 1.4 from either Canon or Sigma. ; Sigma has made excellent strides lately and are now making superior products than OEM for the price point. ; (I'm excluding the 50/1.2L from comparison to it)
