What I really want to see is images that show some of the "drawing" ability of the 50L. That wonderful delineation. I would also really like to see some shots that show the transition bokeh. I don't ever get why so many early product shots from review sites (of large aperture primes) are of either scenics or large objects 10 feet or so from the lens. Show us some nice portrait type shots or more artistic narrow DOF shots - you know, the kind of shots that people actually buy lenses like this to take!!
Dustin, I agree and here are some slightly better examples from B&H's blog
- samples at the bottom. The transition bokeh on the shot with the glasses isn't pretty, but I don't think we'll know until we can do a real-world side-by-side comparison, in the way you suggest. I think it will be hard to top the 50L's bokeh.

I only shoot at ISO 100 with perfect technique - should I get a Nikon?
