Take a look in my gallery .The bird shots were taken with it .It was a dull day so I was forced to up the iso to around 800 but for a first go at tracking birds in flight I was chuffed and the portrait shot is pin sharp.
My L series is at it's best around f8 but opening it up fully does not show marked deterioration.It is very heavy though so take that into account .It balances the 50 d well when shooting but is a pain in the neck "literally" after a long day out.
Given canon's crop factor the 400 ml is fantastic for getting right in there.
Lovely pics and as you say, very sharp.
I think the way the 50D handles noise at up to ISO 800, it compensates well for not having a fast lens.
