More modern design.

But the 50 mm/1.1 is from 2009. I may buy the argument that they didn't need to make it any sharper for what it was supposed to do, but would a 2012 or 2013 lens of similar dimensions really be that much of an improvement design-wise?

And even if sharpness suffers somewhat, I suspect that in most circumstances it would suffice for the output, and wouldn't an oversized lens then still be preferred with regards to vignetting and cat-eye-effects and such?
