Re: 'Best' 50mm lens?

Many will disagree, but having owned and tried many, the EF 50 1.2L is the best 50 mm lens of all time next to the zeiss planar and Leica 50 f/2.

The lens is extremely high resolution wide open at 1.2 but has lowered contrast and haze from 1.2-1/.6 which is fixable by lowering the blacks.
