I ordered the EF 50mm f/1.4 USM. It's on for $400, there's a $10 off code (PLSSTAY) and then I get $50 back from Amex Plat. Seems like an OK deal and I want the lens for a vacation next week so I can't wait till boxing day. It will be $386 after tax.

Unless there's a particular characteristic you're looking for with the EF 50mm f/1.4 USM, consider the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM. It's much cheaper, doesn't have the fragile AF motor of the f/1.4, and honestly the f/1.4 performs pretty poorly wide open at f/1.4. At f/1.8 and above I feel (and many others do as well) that the 50mm f/1.8 actually outperforms it.
