Not so.  Neither have ever had "L" glass.  The native lens on the 50 is a little better than the native lens on the 40.  For example the lens on the 40 is identical to the lens on the 30, which had substantial CA at the wide end.  In the 40 Canon used software to correct the cA and WA shots from the 40 were more CA free than those of the 30.  But the 50 lens is not only longer, but better corrected and has almost no Ca naturally and is pin sharp edge to edge.  I have all three cameras.  The 50 focuses significantly faster and zooms faster than the others.
