Has anyone upgraded from 1.4 to 1.2 and felt that afterall you don't really need to spend so much on the 1.2 and that the 1.4 is more than enough to do justice?.... or perhaps 'impulse buying' experience?
I have been thinking of upgrading to 1.2 only because I am not confident of the focusing motor in 1.4. My assignments are 60-40 for events and controlled environment. It fainted a few times during my last AD wedding session (and a few times before) - just refused to focus and I had to twist ring to one end for it to be conscious again. Well, I heard it's a common issue with this old lens. Sent it to CSC and so far no problem. But the thing is apart from that, this damn thing produces solid IQ which am sure many of you know.
Honestly, I rarely shoot at 1.4 and won't see myself shooting at 1.2 that often. More often than not it's 1.8 or 2.0 (else no point on getting it anyways). On the other hand, am not afraid of investing on this either cuz resale value is there.... but ..... back to my question above? and in real world situation... how's the difference? Thanks.
EDIT: I just realised this thread should be posted in Canon. Mod, would be nice if you can move.
