Has anyone used a Canon FD 50mm 1.2L
May 1, 2013

I have a non L.  @ f/2 it is very sharp IMO but wide open it seems very poor.  However the Bokeh is awesome.  I am wondering if the L version is sharper wide open and just as important, is the Bokeh as nice?  By nice I mean creamy, obviously some people prefer a different look. If you have any experience with the L version please let me know your opinion.  Is it worth the extra $300 USD.

Here are some samples.

@f/1.8 or f/2 not sure. This is what I think bokeh should look like.

This one was definitely shot at f2

@ 2.8 very nice
