Try shoot side by side with a Sigma 50 1.4 or Zeiss 50 1.4 you may have a second opinion. Especially at 1.4, I bought a F1.4 lens because I need to use it at 1.4, and that is the reason I no longer have the this lens, not to mention its quilt quality and AF motor.

To be honest none of Canons f1.4 lenses I own 50mm, 35mm and 24mm mkII are really great at f1.4, the 35mm is just about acceptable, the others useless. At least the 24mm is biting sharp in the middle at f1.4.
