The main attraction to mirrorless for me is the ability to try old rangefinder lenses. I thought it would be cool to try an old Canon lens on the new Canon platform.

I bought a Rokkor-X 58/1.2 yesterday. Should be here in a week, or so. I'm getting excited...


Congrats!

I suspect you will really enjoy it, Jim.

Thanks, Paul. It was shipped from upstate NY last Friday. Hopefully, it'll be here soon. Maybe, today.

I think I'll call it, "Son of Thorium".

I've had loads of phenomenal lenses (most of the ZE lineup, most FF lenses wider than 24, almost every fast 50, loads of macros, 90-105 and dozens of 135s)....I think I prefer images from the Rokkor 58 over most any lens i've owned.

It isn't the focal length. It's the drawing. You'll love it.

OTOH, the Leitax mount isn't here, yet.

Here's a shot from my Olympus OM 50mm f/1.2 wide open. I've been using more in the last few days than usually since I listed it for sale but was not 100% about selling it. You might say the lens exhibits double character. It does not like harsh light wide open and shows plenty of glow when used at f/1.2 in direct sunlight and visible CA. That might not be a problem anymore since my Canon 6D does not shoot at 1/8000 (like 5DII). The lens however is behaves well with softer light and is actually quite sharp wide open (like in the shot below).

My lens collection is rather Zeiss oriented so a friend of mine (Kiddi) loaned me his 50P and 50MP for comparison. I did a quick test af f/2 with all the lenses yesterday and it seems like the 50/2 Makro Planar and 50/1.2 are about equally sharp at f/2 but the 50/1.4 Planar is still a bit soft.

There's a great video on DPreview together with a couple of other links (one back to ZEphoto's). Fascinating stuff..

I saw planar 50/.07 on ebay 3 years ago priced up above $5000.
Back 1975 I went to enjoy Barry Lyndon 3 Times , 5-6 hours per round of cause.

I still want to see an actual size of planar 35/0.7.

Cross post from the Film thread:

Attended a friends wedding in Sweden this summer, didn't want to lug a big dslr with me so I brought my trusty old Canon F with 50mm f/0.95 and a couple of rolls of film.
