Thanks all for the suggestions and experience.

Any comments about how do the f/1.4L compares at f/1.4 to the Rokinon at f/1.4 and Zeiss at f/2? Is it usable at f/1.4 for say environmental portraits and whatnot? Or is it like the Canon 50/1.4 which is horribly soft and full of CA at 1.4 and is basically useless until stopped down to 1.8 or so?
