Makes the other vendors 50mm look really bad.

canon 50L has 17p and the Nikon 50 1.4g with 15p

To be fair, I bought the 50L and I bought it for the wide open f/1.2 bokeh, not the sharpness. I also found the 50L sharp enough at f/1.2 (e.g., eyelashes). I suppose someone shooting landscape with the 50L might be disappointed using that lens, though.

I did sell the 50L because I preferred shooting at 35 and I used the 50 and my 35 for the same types of shots.
