Is the FE 55mm notably better than the SEL50 on a Nex?

Has anyone tried the FE 55mm on a APS-C and compared it carefully to the SEL 50mm on the same APS-C.

My reason for asking is that I use mostly the SEL50, which I find to be very good, but would always be interested in an IQ upgrade if the FE 55 would make a real difference.  As a side note I don't care about IS, but do care about focus speed.

If you have tried this comparison, I'd love to hear what you have to say.
