Compared to the stock 18-55mm lens, it certainly a lot better in low light levels & the bokeh provides for some lovely atmospheric effects.

Here's a few shots I've taken, straight after unwrapping it & mounting it onto the 450D's body:

No gaussian blurring has been used in these shots, although I have carried out a little vignetting to increase the 'Christmas effect'.
