Re: Keep my new 50LF1.2 or return it for a 50mmArt ?!?

I think many 50L owner baught this lens because there was never a decent enough alternative in the Canon lineup or 3rd party manufacturers.

I owned the 50L about 3 years and sold it because of not enough use. For sitting in the bag most of the time it was too expensive. Also at that time no Sigma 50Art existed. Today I would for price and sharpnes take the Sigma any time. I own the 35Art and love it. The 50L has perhaps a slightly softer bokeh but that would not justify the huge price difference for me.

Id send it back or get the 85L instead which has no focus shift issues due to a floating element. I didn't have this issue at wide apertures but it's often reported at higher f numbers.
