Love this one; incredibly sharpness at this aperature.
I agree. The only normal lenses that can compete at this level, at f1.2, are:
Contax 55/1.2 - $ several thousand, very rare and the bokeh is not as good as the Rokkor.
Noct-Nikkor 58/1.2 - $ several thousand, very rare and only the original, hand-polished versions are really worth the money. I've been told that it is identical in optical design and formula to the Rokkor.
SMC-Pentax 50/1.2 - more affordable but very rare and the bokeh suffers due to over-corrected spherical aberration (like the Contax).
The balance of wide-open sharpness, bokeh, availablility, and price of the Rokkor is unbeatable, IMO.
