I saw a comparison between the two in a magazine some years ago.
From f2 on both performed nearly equal but wide open the Canon had 
less light fall of (Canon can obviously take some benefit from 
their large bayonet I suppose) and much better contrast. 
But to my mind the comparison is a little unfair. The EF-lense 
is a much newer design a clunker of a lense and its price is 
even higher if I remember right.
