what aperture would you say the Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM lens is sharpest?
Why not just try it yourself? It's a matter of 5 minutes and you'll see how your particular lens behaves with your camera body.
most lenses are sharper at smaller apertures. you can check "sharpness" ratings at sites like www.photozone.de
I find "sharpest" to be negligible really with these lenses. Shoot at what you went sharp in your foreground and background instead and make the photo you want.
I find f/2.8 is very sharp...
