Not A50 F1.2, though your right about "at or near 1.2"

The shape of the OOF highlights suggests the Cosina 55/1.2 to me.

It's only easy because I have the lens and am intimately familiar with its quirks!

You're right though, it's fun (especially when I'm right).

Agreed...I immediately thought FA31 looking at the creamy bokeh and perspective.

I tend to agree... the characteristics of a wide but shallow DOF means mostly 31mm.

Thickness DOF, wide, relatively close distance, assuming on bed, bokeh <2m distance to wall
lenses on your profile, experienced skills...
It can be from 28f2 or 35f2, but my guess it's from your FA*24 @f2.
