comparing canon 50 L vs zeiss 50MP is like comparing nissan gtr vs MB s-class sedans

Easy. Zeiss 50 + GTR for me.

Here are some miscellaneous pictures I took from a recent vacation.

The 50L could easily take those. Maybe even the 50 1.4.

The thing is is doesn't matter how sharp the lens if, or how it renders colour but how you apply it to an image. AF always wins for me unless you are on a tripod shooting landscapes with a TS-E lens.

How is the Canon 50 different from the Zeiss 50?

The Canon auto-focuses and is a stop faster. The Zeiss can focus at 24cm whereas the Canon can only focus as close as 45cm. The focus plane on the Zeiss is flat, the Canon has a slightly curved field. And they look a lot different.
