Hi,

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.
Maybe the more experienced photographers can tell me if this is "within range".



Does my reply constitute hijacking the thread? Hmmm. Sorry.

I also vainly attempted to make use of the 50/1.2 over the years. Shooting live dance I need the speed, and auto focus, but the lamentable lack of sharpness across the lens always made suspect it was the lens. it WAS the lens, and I was using it for a purpose it was never designed for - sharpness across the spread wide open.

I opted for one of the esoteric CONTAX/Zeiss 50/1.4 lenses modified by Bo Ming at Conurus to enable auto-focus.

I've been smiling ever since.

This thread is about the Otus 55mm f1.4 TDP review. I believe you hijacked the thread by mistake. I'm not sure how the Canon 50L got mixed up in this discussion.

By the time you grow up they should have it ready.

The big problem with the Otus is , where to know exactly where to put the plane of sharpness at F 1,4 and with out using live view.
The focus assistance is too blunt and the matte screen to poor



True however you can improve things by always approaching focus from either the infinity side or short and confirm AF with MA (micro adjust) set to the very beginning of the "blunt" focus range with focus confirmation on.

Sorry, I failed to read back a few pages. From my point of entry it wasn't clear.
