I think the best of the bunch at these focal lengths as regards bokeh is the old Sigma 50 f1.4, creamy bokeh and some charm to the shots.

Yes! Now that you mention it, the old Sigma 50mm shares many of the same attributes with the new 58 1.4G - silky smooth bokeh, not very sharp wide open at close distances, excessively large lens barrel, and low vignetting. If one needs a 50mm cream machine and can't or won't afford the new 58mm, the old Sigma is a great choice:

Doesn't get much silkier than that!
