Thank you for that ;
Interesting ,
As you say , many of the older lenses are great wide open , but not so, closed down , I find.
Fun though... But beyond me... I got as far as buying tiny screwdrivers to try to fix some... and so far...
You are right. Wide open with a paper-thin focal plane, I can use these f 1.2 lenses to get some very interesting flower perspectives, sometimes things I never expected.

Purple Swamphen on a very fancy nest. K10D and SMC Pentax-DA 50-200mm F4-5.6 ED. Despite some less than glowing reviews I am very happy with this lens.

It was taken on the lake in the retirement village where I live. Around the top left area. This image was taken early last Sunday morning with my K10D.
