Focus shift of the 50 L isn't a problem unless you use it between 2,8 and 5,6. I'm so tired of trying to get people that say it's way overpriced to actually use it where it's clearly best, widest of apertures. The bokeh is in another league compared to any other 50 on the market. Resistance to flare is in another leauge, same with color and contrast, plus it's the fastest most accurate AF. Best build BY FAR, weathersealed. I mean, to say it's overpriced and not worth it compared to the 50 f,14 is wrong on so many levels. A friend of mine said it best "The people dogging the 50L tend to only shoot rulers and testcharts, I shoot people with it, and at that, it can't be beat"
There is no fantastic 50mm on the planet, I mean, compare them in every aspect to the 35's and 85's and both are clearly better, but the 50 focal is just fantastic so we all love them and buy them. and the 50 L is the best.
