I like my 50 f1.2. Yes, the background can be a little busy, but that is in part, i think, due to the focal length. If you want a softer background, everything else being equal, you probably should look at a longer lens. Here'a a picture of my daughter, from today!

taken wide open, as the lens is intended to be used, in my opinion.

Here is a review of the lens:

Beautiful. These older lenses have so much character / lovely rendition. From what I read on some of these fast lenses, you are right, many reviews refer to how they are best at f2.8, f4 or f 5.6, as opposed to the 'usual' f8.
