Has anyone tested them both side by side?

The tests and comparisons I've seen with the 50mm compared to others (Canon, Tamron, Sigma)in the 90+ range is that this 50mm kills in sharpness both at edges and in the center.

Comparing the different ranges is not quite fair but what I'm getting at is that what I'm hearing about the 70mm is that it is just as sharp as the 50mm. There are no in depth tests with good photographic comparison to others. Anyone here have them both or know anything about the 70mm quality to share with me?

With reviews like this [http://www.popphoto.com/cameralenses...macro-af.html] for the 70mm, it's hard to imagine that the 50mm could be much better.

Thx,

Yes, I've seen that one and some others like ephotozine.com.

But most impressive is the TIPA award 2007 for "Best Expert Lens".

I would still like to hear of a comaprisons between those two.
