I recently (1/2 year ago) downsized from a ton of Nikon FF equipment towards a Leica M (240) but waiting for Solms to actually produce one I stumbled upon a Nex-6 and I kinda like it so far, I just miss fast glass. Until Sony pushes out the Nex FF, I`ll try to stock up on whatever "legendary" glass I can find. (Speed Boosters and / or Lens Turbos included for this -hopefully short - ride)
The 58mm 1.2 Rokkor was one of the first on the list, mainly due to my lust for the Noct Nikkor that I never had. And after what beautiful images I`ve seen posted by yourself and the other gents produced with the help of the 1.2 Rokkor, I fell madly in love with it.
As I know myself I`ll probably end up buying both the 55 FD and the 58 MD, but I would rather avoid buying them all at once mainly because none of them would get the deserved attention.
I have no particular intention of moving to a dSLR ever again, and I`m guessing the market is going to shift in that direction as well in the next coming years. However I would jump on a proper 6x6 digital medium format if one of the companies decides to ever produce a back to such specifications.
Canon 58mm f/1.2 was just moved to the bottom of the list.
All I need now is a fast 28-35mm and so far I`m not to impressed by the Voigtlander 1.2s rendering.
