| p.2 #6 · 50 f/1.2 vs 50 f/1.4 - How much extra light? |
My summation from owning the L, 50 1.8, 50 1.4, sigma 50 is that for the most part you are simply splitting hairs and each has it's place re: quality, price, focus, bokeh, rendering
Yup, pretty much agree with that, and it is consistent with what I wrote.

I suppose all your advice doesn't apply to you. Looking at your gear least. From memory I would say your own gear list was a couple of FF bodies 10 L lenses including fast L lenses 4 different tripods and 8-9 bags to carry it in
I never wrote about my specific equipment needs, nor did I write that people should own in specific gear or number of pieces of gear. However, if I felt it was remotely necessary (or relevant to the question about the 50mm lenses) I could explain how each piece is used and illustrate with photographs.
Lars, you are spinning off into ad hominem territory now.
Yup it's a 1/2 stop
If half stops were calculated by averaging the two whole stop numbers, then we would find that the stop halfway between f/8 and f/4 was f/6. Last time I checked on my cameras, the silly manufacturers insisted that f/5.6 is actually found halfway between f/4 and f/8.
And, let's see, if f/1.2 is a half stop, then so is f/2.4 along with f/4.8. The whole stop midway between f/2.4 and f/4.8 would be calculated, according to the formula that would call f/1.2 a half stop, f/3.6. Gee, what happened to f/4?
