Hi

The original thread has reached its maximum post, so I'm starting this part 2 thread.

Original thread

So come in and share your shots :)

To start off, a shot from 50mm f1.2

Part 2 has finally come!

1.2 is so poisonous. Searched high and low in hk recently but can't seem to locate a 2nd hand one. :(
You can check out Peninsula area (I got it there) or our BNS here.

no no no for me . i think the difference may not justify the cost. . . i heard 1.2 has more distortion at every aperture, is that true?

Yes, the f1.2 version has a bit of distortion but I've no idea if stop down will be better as my default aperture is f1.2, lol.

Anyway, it's not serious enough in anyway for people shots.

Wanted one after kena poisoned deep deep by bro Cichlid photos. PMed him a bit and got some sound advice before I mailordered mine from HK. Arrived in 5 days. Cost me US$590 inclusive courier. Sweet lens. If I can only have one lens to take on a trip with my camera this would be it.

I have a 28mm f2.8 AIS lens and I love its close focusing ability (20cm mfd)

1 shot to share, not at mfd though.
