I went to our PX here on base and they didn't have the lens that I wanted, so I had to order online

I went with this one: EF 50mm F/1.4 USM Telephoto Lens for EOS SLR Cameras [P028E]

I am excited! Thanks again for all the help, I hope this is a good one for me!

...now I am off to practice and read more so I can use it when it gets here

hi,
can you update once you get the lens and used it a bit?
I got the 50mm 1.8 and found it hard to use on my T1i. I don't like the zoom effect with the crop sensor, I feel like I had to back up too much. Probably will try a 30mm next, I think I will like that better.

The ef 28mm 1.8 USM works well on the crop body if you do not want as much zoom

Glad to see you choose the 50 1.4 over the 1.8 "plastic fantastic" or AKA "Nifty 50"
It has a much more pleasing bokeh even if shot at the same aperture of 1.8 becuase it has an 8 blade aperture over a 5 blade aperture. I actually prefer the 1.4 over the much more expensive 1.2L because of corner sharpness. The 1.2 bokeh is a bit more pleasing but its a soft lens that has focus issues.
