M 28 and M 50 images

When I went to pick up the M 50 f/1.4 I wasn't expecting it to be small. It is pretty much the same size as the M 28 f/3.5.

sample from the M 50mm f/1.4:

I have the very same M 50/1.4, got it bundled with my ME Super along with a 35/2.8. This post reminds me I should screw it on my dSLR again some time, you'll probably see me posting some sample pics up here as well .

The 50mm 1.4 is noticeably heavier than the 28mm 3.5, even though they are approximately the same size.

The M 50/1.7 and M 28/2.8 are even smaller and very close in size

You just give up a little speed for one and gain some in the other
