I'm about to put my 50L on Ebay.... and it has nothing to do with this new 50mm Art.
I took my kids to Flower Field in Carlsbad yesterday. I carried A7r + FE 55mm. With Eye-focus feature in A7r, compose the shot is so easy. At wide open, I couldn't miss a shot. However, the Bokeh is not smooth as my 50L.
Bottom line is, I'm willing to trade that bokeh for light weight
It's a dichotomy, isn't it? Corner sharpness wins points for a lens in reviews, but for 50 or 85 mm being used for portraits, corner and bokeh sharpness often fights against that magic background separation.
