| p.3 #18 · TDP Review: Zeiss Otus 55mm f/1.4 Distagon T* |
I need some advice concerning my Canon 50mm 1.2 lens. I purchased this lens over a year ago but I have never been very excited about the images that are made with it. A lot of people consider it as the ultimate lens, I do like the focal length but when I shoot with a 135mm 2.0 the images are crisp and sharp. I do not seem to be able to obtain this crisp and sharp look and feel with the 50mm 1.2. I wonder if I have a bad lens or maybe it is not as sharp as I want it to be (which I doubt).
I have finally taken the time to make several shots to compare. And out of these series, only the f2.8 with -20 micro adjustment is sharp. I consider image 10, f2.0 with -20 micro adjustment acceptable. But none of the f1.2 shots are sharp.
I have already sent my lens back to Canon for calibration and they said it is within range. Not sure what they mean within range.
Maybe the more experienced photographers can tell me if this is "within range".
my answers was about 50/1,2, = dreamy lens, not known for the over all sharpness and expensive compared to Canons own 50/1,4 which is better from 1,4
can't understand the fuzz about it
but if you will know how a good lens works, sharpness , bokeh, minimal CA etc etc, take a look at the Otus
