4x Minolta Rokkor 58 f1.2, either with 5D2 or NEX 5N. The first one is @f1.2, the others are either @f1.2 or @f2.0 (I don't recall for sure).

Sebboh - Thanks for this thread! So many of us wonder how these fast lens perform and this has some great examples and comparisons.
Here is my contribution with the MC Rokkor 58mm PG f/1.2. Both shots are at f/1.2. The flower is shot with a 12mm extension tube and the handheld (which is not easy with this lens wide open) portrait is a normal shot wide open. Dave

Olympus 50 f1.2. Retrospectively a very nice lens and certainly the smallest SLR f1.2 lens I'm aware of. It is astounishly sharp wide open (and also stopped down), without a doubt sharper than my Rokkor 58mm f1.2 wide open. I never used it that much and sold it because I don't liked its bokeh that much. Maybe a wrong decision. Here are a few test shots I did when I had the lens (with a 5D classic), all wide open and without much PP I think.

My Rokkor PG 58/1.2 on the NEX 5n is very soft, dreamy, at 1.2...close it to f2 and it becomes quite good...after some PP, the 1.2 shots can become quite interesting...

There's some really nice shots in this thread so far. Here's one of the nFD 85/1.2 on a GH1 at f/1.2. It's one shot from a 32 shot f1.2 panorama.

Fun thread, great photos.

I have a Minolta Rokkor 58/1.2 on the way but so far my only 1.2 lens is the Canon EF 50 f/1.2L. Here are two photos with it both at 1.2.

Thanks Carsten!!!

Here's another with the 85/1.2 at f/1.2 - although I sometimes slip the aperture blades just out of hiding from their 1.2 rest position and I'm not sure if I did that here or not. I usually do so whenever focusing on something closer than about 5 meters. So if I did then this is f/1.225 or something like that.

Ya, I'm not sure why some folks are nervous about reposting their images. I can't see any reason why not to myself.
<shrug>

I mean as long as the person isn't insanely reposting the same few images over and over daily or weekly - WTH, it's all good! I like seeing them a second and third time! And if not my scroll wheel works just fine thank you very much.

Hehe...

Dang nervous photographers...
