The EF 50 1.4 USM is the low light specialist, the EF 50 1.8 is the general purpose optic and the EF 50 2.5 Compact Macro is optimized for close-up work. However, build quality and AF speed are similar between the lenses.
Ken Rockwell
The 50mm macro is a swell lens, and a swell replacement for a traditional 50mm lens if you don't want to be limited by the close focus distance of a regular 50mm lens.
If you need both (50mm normal and macro) in one lens - the Canon EF 50mm f/2.5 Macro Lens is for you! If 1:2 macro is good enough, the Canon EF 50mm f/2.5 Macro Lens is a good value lens. Image quality is very good.
