I like the shot too, but if we are talking strictly bokeh, this lens does not do well at all. The specular highlights have sharp, well defined edges. A lens with good bokeh produces specular highlights with smooth soft edges that blend into each other.

Here are a couple more from the 50 1.4 on the 5D.

This one was shot at f/1.8 and shows some nice bokeh:

This one at f/1.4 isn't about specular highlight-type bokeh, but it kind of fascinates me to see how broken glass can disappear while reflections remain!

It seems rather rough though; I'm guessing 50mm f/1.8?

No, I believe it has five.
Where are you seeing evidence that the image was taken with something that has nine?
Anyway, the EXIF confirms that it was indeed taken with the 50mm f/1.8

i think this has been covered in this enormous thread on at least three separate occasions and honestly, i think everyone has their own understanding of what constitutes as bokeh.

in my opinion (and there's a chance i am wrong), but from my understanding...the quality of background blur is best judged when there is a subject in the frame that is in focus.

it would look far too flat otherwise. in my opinion, the shadow gives the separation perfect dimension.
