Clearing these out before Sigma introduces the new "Art" version?

I have the Canon 50 1.4, which is a little soft and inconsistent, but the siggy isn't enough better to jump on this.  I WILL, however, be all over the new Siggy 50 ART whenever it's released!

Just curious...speculation about new lenses from Canon and Sigma for a 50mm lens....both are in the f/1.4 range.

Why are they not going for the larger apeture f/1.2 lenses?  I'm currently saving for a Canon 50L f/1.2, I rented one and fell in love with it, so curious why they're all seeming to stop at f/1.4 for the newer versions rather than f/1.2?

Thanks in advance,

cayenne

Sometime Canon 50mm L will update, but it's not really a priority at the moment. Expect a price increase of about 30% in an updated version.

But I thought I heard the rumor was, for the 50L update..that it would no longer be a f/1.2, but would the new "L" would be a f/1.4 for some reason, and to me that seemed like a step backwards?
