Of the six small Ls, four are easy: two are F double sexy F' and its mirror, one is [F (R U R' U') F] [f (R U R' U' R U R' U') f'], and one is [F (R U R' U') F'] [(R U R' U') (R' F R F')]. I haven't learned the other two.
Ooh, thanks... new goal for the week: learn small Ls!

Lots of people on ~40, I wonder why that is?

I'm on ~40 too. I've learned all those cases for which doing 2-look takes >5 moves more than 1 look. The rest I'm not bothered about as I can bang out the 2-look with no pause just as quickly. I might learn them anyway when I get bored, but no rush.
Those are all the ones that don't suck. The rest are the ones we all hate lol

Yeah some of them just seem pretty pointless as 2-look is easier, and the 2nd look isn't really a look when you've learned what's coming.
^this.

Some of my "2 look" OLLs are faster than 1-look, because they're basically one alg, composed of what began as a 2-look EO OLL, but now I know what CO OLL it will end up with, so I go straight into it. There's one of the C's that I don't know, but I know I can do 2-look EO then sune to solve. = 1 look. It's probably comparable length to the 1-look alg, and consists of only looking at the cube once... so I guess it's more a 2-stage alg than true 2-look OLL. Once the 2 stage alg flows nicely, it becomes a 1-stage alg and effectively just a less efficient 1-look OLL alg.

I guess?!

@Pip: Yeah exactly, and even though less efficient, it might be easier and faster :)

(Not sure why it's a C though, both of those are easy...)

The Z? I like that one. Its inverse is easy-peasy as well.
R U2 R' U2 (Sledge) is a good one, but I like it because I found it myself. Even though its really obvious.
The 1/216 alg isn't bad as well, M U (Sexy) M2 U R U' r'.
Just hope you don't get an E perm after it.

As that alg doesn't affect CP, you can see an E perm coming. I think something like CLLEF would be useful for this case... although it's unlikely you'd get it with just CFOP. It's even more unlikely when most people use (partial) edge control. But it's only two more algs, so it shouldn't be that much to learn...

Pretty sure these are the other 2 cases. The F dblsexy F' and mirror I recognise as Pi/Bruno (small L with no bar of 3 yellow). The other 2 'sets' of small Ls have either a bar of 3 yellow and a dot on adjacent side, or a bar and a block of 2 yellow stickers on the adjacent side. The algs you gave are for the 3 & dot cases, and these are for the 3 & 2 cases:

OLL 50 - r' U r2 U' r2' U' r2 U r'
OLL 49 - r U' r2' U r2 U r2' U' r
