Agree: a new EF 50/2 or 1.8 IS would be the ticket, I'd probably get it. As long as it wasn't Sigma/Otus sized of course. Not that I'm unhappy with the old EF 50/1.4.
As much as I'd love to see such a lens, Canon is late to the party, and the occasionally super-busy backgrounds of the 35/2 IS have given me a bit of pause- I'd be hypercritical of a new 50 designed similarly. Further, we can be fairly certain that said Canon lens won't be as well corrected as the 50 Art; at a minimum, it'll have more vignetting, but I'd expect more CA of all varieties too. And then there's the price- such a lens from Canon would, if following the pattern of pricing for previous IS primes, would be just as expensive as the Sigma upon release- if not more.
