The EF 50mm f/1.4 is a great documentary and photojournalist lens. It works great starting at about f/2.0 and really shines at f/4-f-8, especially in black and white. It will do passable work at f/1.4-f/1.8 and is very cost effective for that work.
But for those looking for images that rely more on artistic expression, the EF 50mm f/1.2 is the far better lens. Wedding photographer? Environmental portraitist? Those photographers will find the color, contrast, bokeh, etc. all add up to a better image for their purposes much, if not most of the time.
Wow, this is pretty much on point. I was never able to really put my finger on the difference until this!
