Sold my 50mm 1.4
I'm going to try both 50 1.2 and Σ 1.4 Art this week, but my heart goes to 1.2 :-)

Bought the 50mm 1.2 and 6 months later I'm glad I did it!

The 50 f1.2L is a drastically better lens. I started off with the 1.4 also but after trying the 1.2 I immediately sold my 1.4 and bought the 1.2L. I've never regretted it.

Congratz. Glad to see you like then lens.
Now if you really want to have fun with the bokeh, get an ND 4 filter and shoot it wide open in daylight.

I had the 50 1.4 for a while before upgrading the to L. To me, the difference in images was worth the premium for the L lens. Not just 1.2 but color, booked, contrast all play a role. The Canon 50 1.4 was a dull lens, I always had to bump color and contrast in LR but Ive never been disappointed with my 50L. Its my go to lens in pretty all situations.

I love my 50L. Sharpness was not my biggest concern. I liked the fact that it is much more compact than the sigma, and weather sealed. Plus I had no desire to mess around with the dock. If the sigma was a lot cheaper I would've considered it more...but I bought my L used fore about the same price as the sigma.
