1.8 vs 1.8 won't show day and night difference. I was hoping Canon will come up with a 1.4 on RF mount because the 1.2 is pricier than my pre-owned kidneys. And the EF mount 1.4 is older than old. Maybe price the RF mount 1.4 between this 1.8 and the 1.2, and I think there'll be a lot of takers.

Meanwhile I'm keeping the old EF50mm 1.4 because it still gets the job done.

Another EF 50mm Canon lens that gets the job done is the f/2.5 macro version.  I bought it to use for macro shooting but found the IQ and sharpness of it to be wonderful otherwise.  I use it more than the f/1.8 or f/1.4 I own.  I have the convertor for it and with it I can shoot 1:1 macro shots or remove it and shoot normal ones.  Its focus is not the fastest but is accurate.  IMO, it is one of those older hidden gems that doesn't get the praise it deserves.
