Guys, advice please. I have now a triplet of R lenses: 28 Elmarit, 60 Makro Elmarit, 80 'Lux. I ma looking for a 50, as an all-purpose lens (do-anything, take-anywhere). I have tried a 'Cron, and like it. Any sense in going for a 'Lux? I don't shoot wide open that much at all, neither do I do portraits.
So, what will it be?
I own both and there is no comparison between the 50/55 and the 50/60. They only share the same focal lenght and that's it.
The 50/60 is way beyond the 50/55 in all considerations including color rendition - contrast and IQ.
It is like comparing the Elmarit 180 and the APO Elmarit 180 or the Cron 90 and the AA 90. There is no comparison!
As for the usual internet comments, If they they really had a 50/60, they will not let it go and saved us from armchair comparisons between the 50/55 and the 50/60.
Whether you are ready to pay such price for the 50/60 is another matter.
The 50/55 is a perfect all rounder.
