The SC is very good when you stop down to say F2.0 but the bokeh is still a bit busy and never beautiful. Wide open it is more like a special effects lens. Lots of veil. Though the 50/1.2 is an optically much better lens, I do like the 55mm way over the 50mm in terms of focal length for DX. To me this is a lot of difference in those 5mm and I have stopped using 50mm for a long time in fact. Unless it is in bad mechanical shape, not harm getting one. The coating is good enough for SC. (It is only very slightly cool in colours)
