Although a stop slower, the new lens beats the old L by a good margin in both microcontrst (thick lines) and sharpness (fine lines).

as expected. it's a new lens, pretty expensive as well...

Aside from a stop difference and weather sealing, is the L becoming obsolete? Plus

wait till you see refreshed 35/1.4 and its price tag

the new one has IS, better coating, and better AF on 2012 bodies. Does this mean the L version also should be upgraded soon?

not too soon. but probably within next couple of years

Otherwise it doesn't seem to offer much in comparison anymore. Thoughts?

make it 35/1.2 L with 2000$ price tag and MTFs close to the 35/2...
