I wonder if they're delaying it due to the loss in sales of the 50 1.2 that'll most definitely happen to some degree. I mean, I'd consider getting the 50 1.2 right now if there was no 1.8 pancake rumor.

I think you might be the only person seriously cross shopping a ~$200 lens with a $2000+ lens. This is a non-issue.

I gave you a thumbs up on this, but honestly... my 50mm 1.8 STM stopped me from buying a the EF 50mm 1.2L. Mostly because I don't use the focal length very often, so "making do" was fine. So its not that far fetched, even if it is a little comical.

I think you not using the FL very often is the main driver here. I.e. if you had no 50, you'd probably go for the EF 50 STM because spending $2300 or w/e on a lens you rarely use doesn't make much sense. If the 50 STM didn't exist, you'd prob get an EF 50 1.4 or Sigma 50 ART/EX.
