I'm thinking of purchasing this lens some time this week and would like to know if any of you are currently using it with a 300D? Example photos are welcomed! :D

I haven't used it for a while, but when I last did, I preferred it to the cheaper f1.8 model not just for the brighter aperture, but the quicker and quieter USM focusing...

Nice. I was debating between the f/1.4 and f/1.8 model, but I want something with a better build quality, and better bokeh :) I think this will be a great prime lens for me.

Hey Summero, as a matter of fact I just got the eos 40d and the canon 50mm f1.4. I setup a web gallery with some sample images here.
I find the lens very sharp and I just love the bokeh.

If you hover over the bottom of each enlarged photo you'll get the exposure information.

Hi Bart, be great to read a user review of the 50mm f1.4 if you have time...!

(and the 40D too of course!)

Thanks for the info, Bart! I just ordered the 50mm f1.4 to use with my 300D :) I'm really excited! And hopefully I'll be receiving a 40D for Christmas :)
