    People say the bokeh is ugly on th 50mm 1.8, but I don't think its that bad. It's fairly smooth on your shot of the Fanta can, okay, it's no 85mm 1.2 L, but it's still good!

    Blimey, those images are quite impressive! I particularly like the colours and composition in the Fanta can image. Not so sure on #4, what is it of?

    From a £60 lens though :eek:

    All I need to do is save the another £800-odd on top of the £55 I already have, buy a 20/30D then I can consider going for some bargainous glass!

    You mean the large aperture? ;)

    (never let it be said that my anal retentive attention to detail never yielded positive results!)

    I really don't like that lens but got to admit it's great value for the money. Really good shots of ordinary things :)
