The 50mm 1.8 does look sharper, but I like the OOF of the 58mm more. The only way to fix this is to shoot both at exactly the same time and replace the background in Photoshop with the 58's:)

...but seriously. Perhaps the 50mm 1.2 Z will be the perfect blend we're all looking for.

If you look at the 50 at 100% you can see it's front focused and his face is blurry due to camera/subject movement.

The 58 shot has very little detail, look at her hair for example. Both shots would not be keepers for me. I want the subjects eyes/face to be sharp at this distance.

I like the poses, subjects and framing, very nice
