Mine are wide open and yes, that rumor is true. The lens has a "softness" to it.

Softness is one way of looking at it I guess but there are times that not-so utterly clinical sharpness renders the out of focus areas a lot more smoothly than it might otherwise IMO.

Ignoring build quality etc, do users think this lens is worth the premium over a 50mm f1.4?

Over a 50/1.4G? IMO, No. You're talking around 4x the price for the 58. The 50 is already a really good lens. The main attraction for the 58 for me is the out of focus rendering and that isn't worth the price IMO
