I recently picked up a Canon 28 1.8. I'd heard a lot of negative reviews about this lens, but I have been pleasantly surprised. if focuses very quickly and is plenty sharp by f2. It is a little soft at 1.8. In practice that is exacerbated by the fact that I usually am using slow shutterspeeds when shooting 1.8 already. It's pretty much replaced the 50 1.4 for my 60D. Haven't used it much on the 5d2 yet, though that was my original intention.
I've posted some test shots showing this lens at 1.8 - 4.0. All taken at fairly close to MFD so factor that in and forgive the bland test subject. Test images are at http://gc5.smugmug.com …-18-tests/19350564_JsPKNH.
Also threw in a quick one of my son so you can see it in real world use.
