If you want something exotic and faster than the canon 50mm 1.2, then look on ebay and find the canon 50mm 1.0L....
Yep, that's the answer if owning a 50 faster than f1.2 on a Canon DSLR is your quest.

Unless of course you want a very fast 50 macro lens - then the Leica lens on your Canon would be good. The Leica M mount has a flange distance of 27.80mm, and Canon EF is 44.00mm. If someone was to make an optics free mount adapter that was just 1.8mm thick, that and the difference in flange distance would be the equivalent of using an 18mm extension tube. Infinity focus would be far from possible, with the minimum magnification probably somewhere around 0.40x.

If you're determined to use the Leica 50/0.95 on a FF camera other than a Leica, I think you're only option is the Sony NEX-VG900 and an M to E mount adapter. I'd much rather one of the Canon 50L lenses on an EOS body, or a Leica body to mount the Leica lens on.

Thousand Thanks, Dear Mr. @lex.
Wow, Wow, Wow----------Wow, Wow, Wow.
I hear that Canon made Canon FD 50 mm. F/ 1.0 ( 0.95) Long times ago, But I never think that Canon made EF 50 MM. F/ 1.0
Thanks,  I will call my Friend, who work at Canon MFG. , He is Canon Optical Engineer in Japan, and Ask about this EF 50 mm. F/ 1.0----Yes, I will report back to you.
Thanks you, Sir.

Thanks you , Sir, Mr. Rs.
Yes, + 1 for me too, I  would like Canon Lens on Canon Camera Body---Because of 99 % - Nothing can go wrong with the connection - except the 1% poor QC. on that Friday late afternoon in the MFG.
I might Look at Canon FD 50 mm. F/ 0.95 + the FD to EF transfer Ring for my EOS body, Plus the 35 mm. Canon Cameras that I have 6 of them in my Dry Boxes.
Thanks again
