I recently sold my XSi, along with the kit lens and an extra battery, for $250. That seemed to be the going rate. I see them all the time for about $350, but I think that's mostly wishful thinking on the part of the owners.

Thinking about pulling the trigger on this bad boy.
I'm not the one who claimed that, but after F/4 or so, I believe the F/1.8 is as good as the F/1.4 for sharpness. But there are so many other limitations with that lens, as I have previously enumerated.- A
the 50 1.8 II is actually sharper to boot,
Here's another thought: If you can afford a 70D, you're not far from a 7D. Sensors are going to be similar, but you get better build quality and more pro-level features on the 7D. I just think you'll be happier with it in the long run. You do have a nice collection of lenses with a wide range of focal lengths.
If I were in the market for a 7D, I'd probably wait a few months for the rumored Mk II.
The 1.4 supposedly has better build quality but breaks more often and is not as sharp.
