Is the Canon 50mm f1.2 a good investment compared to some cheaper alternatives?

I have been using a Canon EOS 7D since the last 5 years. I have never possessed a prime lens before now and am looking to invest in a 50mm f1.2 lens from Canon. I am slightly conflicted between the Canon 50mm f1.2 L and the 50mm f1.4 lens. Don't plan on upgrading my camera body in the near future. My primary focus is taking portraits with the new lens. Is the 50mm f1.2 L ideal for me or should I consider the f1.4 as well?
