I wanted to love this lens but the more you compare to the other brands and the quality.. you start to really get bitter!

That's not a good sign for a new lens!

If you read the post you will see that its because of the focal length. 50mm is considered by many on the APS-C to be a short-telephoto and not very usable outside of portraits. I have the 50/1.4 and find myself using the 35/2.4 far more often because of the focal length.

Yeah, I think the lens is a fine performer for the price. It's just not one I'll personally use very often and I'd prefer to spend my funds elsewhere.
