The 50L never does well in resolution tests, in fact the EF 50/1.4 tests about the same, but there are many people who like it because it is f1.2 and has great bokeh - this does not invalidate the purpose of the lens. After all, maximum resolution at f1.4 is largely wasted for many/most shots as so much is out of the plane of focus anyway, so why stress to have it pinsharp? The new Sigma looks to be good, but it will need good AF and I, for one, hate its large size. The trend for many of us is to go smaller (look at the mirrorless faction) and the trends for all the boutique lenses seems to be along the lines of "bigger is better and cooler"- great for a year and then the novelty wears off.
