That is exactly the kind of bokeh I have seen from the 50mm f1.8G. Obviously not all the time but when it happens it's like "omg what happened??"

I'm not buying the 58 either. I can't see spending that much for it. On ff if you can shoot at f2.8, the DOF is pretty shallow so I've been happy with my sigma 70mm f2.8 as my "normal" lens until something better comes along. I hope the new sigma is and is around the 1000 USD mark or less.
