Probably an X-Ray or Photo Copier lens.

I'm almost certain that XR means X-Ray, so that would be a X-Ray lens. I also have a Rodenstock XR Heligon 75mm f/1.1, but this one has a FL-mount (converter is on the way).

Camera is a 450D. And forget about easy picture-shooting. I have to focus by moving my tripod at focus distance of about 5cm (from front of the lens to the object). But I see it as a challenge.

Just snapped a few shots on my camera store's 5D with my new OM 50/1.2. Having had the OM 55/1.2 I have to say I am MUCH happier with this lens. It is faster and MUCH sharper:

Man I would LOVE to use a maxxum / Dynax 9 one day... the 7 was my favourite camera despite my allegiance to the EOS 3 and I heard some good stuff about the 9.

The titanium one was sexual

The zuiko actually seems to resolve more detail, but the konica is more contrasty.

The Konica looks to have not only better contrast than the Zuiko, but also much nicer bokeh and more pop and 3D-ness.

Through all the images, I must say that the Zuiko 50/1.2 fails to impress. It holds no magic for me.

It's too bad that there are pretty much no decent Konica AR-mount SLRs.

The Olympus 50mm F/1.2 does much better when some distance is involved... Its bokeh at min distance is distracting and you have to be careful with the lens. At longer distances its a very good lens wide open.

The Zuiko resolves more detail than any f/1.2 lens I have tried - including the Rokkor. Contrast can always be added in PP, but not detail. The Zuiko 50/1.2 is also near perfect across the full frame from f/2, and has excellent/neutral color.

I really love the 'technical' bokeh of the Olympus 50mm 1.2 and the examples here show nicely how it gathers all the detail at the focal plane and then blurs in its own way the bg and fg.

I don't use it often enough because I prefer the versatility and bokeh of the 50mm f2 macro which spends more time on my cameras.

Thanks James, great blog! You're the perfect person to ask, I have a pentax-a 50/1.2, and was thinking of trading it in for (or adding to my collection) a 50mm Summicron-R. Does the Summicron outperform the Pentax at f/2.0? I find this is the aperture I usually use on the Pentax to avoid purple fringing and general softness from shallow DOF when shooting portraits.
