You won't go wrong with the 50mm prime. I often use it and is completes the lens package I have. The DOF is excellent and produces very sharp images. Here are three shots from this lens.

20d, 50mm

Glad you liked 'em! I gave those picks an extra layer of hue/saturation color through cs3. Here are the steps:

-open image, - under the "layer" tab click <duplicate layer>, then go to
top tool bar, click "Image" - <adjustments>, <Hue/Saturation>, <colorize>.

Played around with the right amount of tone I was looking for then clicked "ok".
Then I went to the far right and clicked the down arrow located just under the "channels" tab and clicked on "overlay" and adjusted the "opacity" until it looked just right. The only thing left to do is "flatten Image" and your done.

Cheers!

I mine and wouldn't be without it. You have to be careful with the AF. At times I go to manual just to ensure being accurate with it. I would love to have the 85mm as well. I usedit for the attached pic of our chow/shar-pei mix Bo.
