| p.2 #7 · Ultimate 50mm lens for alt gear? |
hmm, the oly looks slightly better in sharpness, bokeh, and contrast to me. color might be better from the leica but tough call.
Reconsidering i feel stupid for opening this thread and I think I should keep to my Takumar 50mm 1.4 and Jupiter-9, and just keep SHOOTING instead of dreaming of other lenses...
50mm 1.4 takumar is a pretty good lens....
that is probably the best, most sensible course of action. i think the takumar has a nice balance of properties and i'm sure there have been great photographers who shot with it exclusively. that's not the type of advice forums like this are for though...
if i were to limit myself to just one normalish lens it would be the rokkor 58/1.2 (or leica m summilux asph if money didn't matter). for what it's worth, it outperforms the takumar in cross the frame sharpness, bokeh, CA control, color and character (imo). the takumar beats it for central sharpness at f/1.4 and f/2, contrast, and flare resistance.
