I just purchased a very good used copy of the Canon 50mm 1.2L. Been reading many good things about the Sigma 50mm Art lens. Any thoughts on how they would compare?

Given that the Sigma 50 mm Art is nearly as sharp as the Zeiss Otus

you can get a good estimate of how the Sigma and Canon compares by comparing the Canon to the Otus

Or compare directly at SLRgear

and get a laugh for corner softness by looking at this lens
