i feel like if you're going to put an f/1.2 lens on the OMD it's gotta be the pen f 42/1.2 or OM 50/1.2.

Well I like all the images so far so I think it will come down to the focal length I need. The 58mm minolta is in the running because I can use it as an ~85mm on the NEX or ~120mm on the OMD, which I really like for portrait ranges.

I would love the 50mm on OMD but the 75mm FOV on NEX is no-man's lands for me. The 42 is just too close to my 45 1.8 which I am quite content with.

ah, i didn't know you still had a NEX. i certainly won't say anything bad about the rokkor. the pen 42mm is a very different kind of lens than the 45/1.8, and i'm certainly not one for only having a single lens at focal lengths i use a lot.

Canon FL55/1.2 wide open on 5D Mk III

By the way I sought this lens after seeing shots by Sebboh on the FD/FL thread (before I even knew about other desirables like the Minolta), but I'm happy!

Praise from me too philipj: how on earth did you achieve such crisp focus on a moving subject with such a large aperture

Thanks! I attribute it to luck and practice.

I tended to stay stationary and let the rider enter the frame. The less orthogonal to you the harder it gets, but my keeper rate was maybe 50% over all of the shots.

Here are a few others from that day, also with the 50mm f/1.2 AI-s wide open.

A few shots with my underutilized Nikkor 50/1.2. I am constantly amazed by this lens. Still learning its virtues and imperfections that hopefully I can manage to turn into virtues. IMO, itís a very unique lens that I wouldn't give up for other 50mm Leitz or Zeiss glass.
