Yes, I am part of the group who think there is a definite difference between 1.4 and 1.2 50mm's..... and am a privileged owner of an amazing hunk of metal and glass!

A couple shots I've taken to illustrate the DOF @ F/1.2 to a family member in Utah im staying with

1.

3.



and how it arrived at my house, for $222 One of my best purchases yet, and I can say that with the utmost of certainty.

Very nice as usual! How on earth did you get that fly in focus? The first photo is my favorite of this series.

I was very pleased to see I got it in focus hahahaha. I only got one shot off before it flew away ( as what usually happens with hoverflies) so it was just a matter of being used to/knowing the lens and perhaps a tad bit of luck

Thanks!

Thanks Jay Do you still own an F/1.2 lens (cosina right?)?

Here's another of the neat plant the hoverfly was sitting on
