I just visited my grandson and his family. I shot a lot with the nifty fifty. When editing I noticed how sharp this guy is, it keeps up with my 85 1.8, which I love. If I owned a 50L I'd never shoot with it other than wide open. Stop down a half stop and you're at the nifty fifty. Yes the 50L has better bokeh, but not to the tune of $1200.
Of course it's not just the bokeh. I shoot in environments (not just weddings) where the 1.2 saved my ass. You don't always need 1.2, but it sure is nice to have it when you do. And let's not even compare build quality and focus speed between the 50L and nifty fifty (or the 1.4 for that matter). When's the last time anyone here pulled out the nifty fifty to shoot a wedding? Now don't get me wrong, I used to own the nifty fifty and it was a fine budget lens that one could get pretty nice results from. The 50L , imo, is indeed worth the $1200 more. Now, I think congratulations are in order for my avoiding the usual car and fine restaurant/chef analogies.
