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.
