Canon Rumors just posted a [CR2] rated rumour that a new Canon 50mm f/1.4 II lens is on its way.
This sounds like great news to me, since the current one really isn’t very sharp off-centre when used at the larger apertures.
I’ve been considering switching to Sigma’s 50mm f/1.4 for the more consistent sharpness across the frame, but never really felt it was worth the extra money and extra weight. Fingers crossed that the new Canon 50mm f/1.4 will be even better.
