Sold mine, bought a 40/2.8

The other reasons to keep it would be:

  • as backup

  • for use with a second body or if my kids become more interested

  • as a "street" walk-around lens in environments where a gripped or pro body and a fat L lens is not appropriate

These are pretty much the reasons why I still kept the 50/1.4 long after buying the 50/1.2. However, once the 40/2.8 came out I bought it and sold the 50/1.4. The 40 is a much better choice as a small and light backup that you won't hesitate to bring along on trips because of the weight, and about as good as it gets when you want to be discrete.
