I did a similar test, and while under these cirucmstances, differences are hard to tell, out in real world shooting, you notice the difference.

The 1.4 has a certain "hard" bokeh vs. the L. I just recently made the switch to the L.

You pay a lot for the little difference - but to some, its worth it.

Very interesting comparison, thanks for taking the time to do this. Stepped down a bit would have made it tougher for me but I don't peep at 100%. As you've taken the plunge and have the L and nifty in your bag, how do you feel about the 2 in real life shooting ??

Good for you! This video convinced me to buy it over the Canon 1.4, and I'm loving it!

Before I peek, I'll guess at:

1.4
1.2
1.8

Now lets see if I'm right...

I thought it was 2, 8, 4 but I believe the correct answer is 2, 4, 8. The L is most obviously different.

the first pic looks sharpest so imma guess that the 1.2

the last pic looks the softest so imma guess thats the 1.8.

im judging the sharpness from the the text above the red ring that makes you broke

Argh, the 8 is still the most blurry (see the text on the lens). I *really* didn't need an excuse to consider upgrading to the 4, but current pricing is making it hard to pass up.

I think it would be interesting to just post ONE of the pictures and see if we can pick out which lens it came from. That's more realistic considering you generally don't see identical side by sides from different lenses.
