Try the Canon ef 50/1.4, it is cheaper, lighter and the af is more accurate. But the af mechanism is not the most reliable, I have heard. I have both the 1.4 and the 1.2 L and wide open it is easier to focus with the 50/1.4 (with the old 5d from 2005). Even if wide open af is not very easy, there is always live view or microadjust, so if you can afford the 50/1.2L, go for it. But it will not be your only lens. You are not going to neglect the 135/2L, are you? :-)))) Enjoy!!!!!!!!

I also agreed that the OP should get 50 f/1.4 instead; it has 95% of 50 f/1.2L...
I think 35L +50 f/1.4 is better than 50 f/1.2:
