| p.2 #9 · oil on aperture blades of 58 FL 1.2 - can it affect picture quality too? |
I had a 58/1.2 FL Mount- picked up for $50 at a Photorama show. Used it with a Canon Pellix, sold it with the camera. I kept the 50/1.4 FL Mount lens, the later 1968 version with 7 elements in 5 groups.
Converted the Canon 50/1.4 FL to Leica M-Mount, RF coupled.
If you "have to have" an F1.2 lens, the Canon 55/1.2 FL, Konica AR mount and Minolta MC mount F1.2's are better. The Canon 58/1.2 used Hot glass, the 55/1.2 FL mount dropped it.
The Canon 50/1.4 FL mount used here was a $30 lens. 1/2 stop slower, but much-much sharper.
