:?I'm buying the 5D with the 18x70 kit lens, thats all I can spend now, but I saw a 50mm prime 1.7 Minolta lens for 89.00, is it junk?, would it be any better than the kit lens set at 50mm? would it be much better in low light?

thanks for you help

Go ahead this is a good lens, very useful.
50mm f/1,4 doesn't worth the price difference.
