Focusing with the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 lens

edited May 2012 Posted in » Canon Lens Talk
Is this the "nifty fifty" you talk about? I am having trouble when trying to use it for macro shots. When I get close to an object, it won't autofocus. If I switch it to manual focus, I have to back up and lose the close-up detail I'm looking for. Not sure what I am doing wrong here.

Also, can I use this lens for portraits (blurring the background)?
