Latest Review Posted Revuenon 55mm F1.2 MC
I had some time with both this lens and the Porst 55mm/f1.2 and this one won out in the end. What I would recommend to all in order to squeeze the maximum contrast out of this lens is to buy one of those metal screw-in hoods - it makes an incredible difference to the output.

Razor-thin DOF so extra hard to focus but I've managed to get around 50% keepers out of it and for an MF lens wide open, that is pretty good. It is built like a tank, all-metal and the focus is smooth (I sometimes operate it with one finger). The output outperforms the 50mm A and F lenses I've owned in the past. bokeh by Mike Bing, on Flickr by Mike Bing, on Flickr
