It seems that my guess is similar to some people here.

2 - 4 - 8

Looking at bokeh and sharpness, 1.2, 1.4. 1.8.

Kind regards, Wim

I couldn't tell the bokeh of one from the that of others but the sharpness was a giveaway. So I would say 1.2, 1.4, 1.8.

The first shot is stopped down (can tell from the specular highlights). So this is not the f/1.8. Then looking at this shot again, the specular highlights have no bright ring effect at all and so this shot is the 50L f/1.2. I also think this shot is a little sharper, though at these kinds of tiny sizes, who can tell. I would expect from owning all three that the 50L is sharper below f/2, but it's hard to imagine this would be detectable at this size image. So maybe I see things there.

Shots 2 and 3 both show bright ring effects in the highlights, and I think I see blades in #2. So #2 is the 50/1.4 and #3 is the 50/1.8.

This does show how similar these lenses are for IQ alone (real world performance is different thanks to the focus motors). I'll also note that I have found the occasional situation where the 50L effect on bokeh is more dramatic. But usually it's like this - very subtle.

Took me a while of staring at them but I think I got them right (if the file name matches their numbers!)

Wasn't sure which the 1.4 or 1.8 was by the bokeh, then I looked at the sharpness of the letters and figured out which was the 1.8. One with the smoothest bokeh is the 1.2. The 1.4 has "nervous" bokeh as they put it, which is why I bought the Sigma. ;)

1) L
2) 1.4
3) 1.8

I like these comparisons.

I don't know if sharpness can be used to infer that the last image is the f/1.8, I've used 2 X 50L's and 1 f/1.8 and the f/1.8 was ironically the sharpest of all 3. There's a LOT of sample variation amongst these lenses.

I first looked at the bokeh, and I was fooled. I then looked at the sharpness of the text on the lens and it was pretty easy to tell which lens was which.

2,4,8

The last is definitely the 1.8 because background-blur-circle-bokeh-balls show no aperture blades, hence shot wide open.

Mostly guessing on the other 2 but the background blur on those are what made me decide on my choices. Honestly both the 1.4 and 1.2 are great lenses if you do these types of tests. The bonus is of course the 1.2 goes to 1.2.

1) Canon 50 1.8 , I can tell from the aperture blades in the bokeh.
2) Canon 50 1.4
3) Canon 50 1.2 The bokeh seems a bit smoother

Nevermind, I was way off lol

Wow, this thread made me happy with my 50 1.8 II :) It's as good as the 1.2 :D ;)

If you had shot at f2.2+ it would have been more apparent. Love the Pentagons, baby!!
