i figured since the question of fast lenses and which are sharpest/have the best bokeh/will magically make me a decent photographer comes up a lot we should just start a thread showing examples from all our ultrafast lenses wide open to direct people to. so post any images you have from an f/1.2 or faster lens wide open even if it's not alt (for comparison purposes). please also post what format (e.g. 4/3, aps-c, FF, truck camera)
for reference there was a similar thread a while ago:
here's a quick contribution of some of my oldies:
canon FL 55mm f/1.2 on 4/3:
rokkor MD 50mm f/1.2 on 4/3:
rokkor MC PG 58mm f/1.2 on 35mm film:
olympus pen f 42mm f/1.2 on aps-c:
it's possible i could be convinced to allow f/1.4 lenses if enough people think it's a good idea.
edit: OK, here is the rule on lenses slower than f/1.2: you can post images from lenses as slow as f/1.5 but they must be for comparison purposes – for every shot you post slower than f/1.2 you must also post a shot at f/1.2 (or faster). this should keep us from a deluge of f/1.4 images.
