It's faster (f/1. and I never had any problems focusing with it on my 40D (even in really low light conditions).

I've not use the Canon 50mm prime, but why do you say that the 50/1.8 lens would have more trouble focussing than your 40/2.8 lens? Since SLRs focus with the aperture wide open, it should be able to focus more easily than your 40/2.8 in low light?
