Congrats Rafael!

I am interesting in your (and anyone's) take on the 50 and 55mm 1.2 lenses. I am looking to shoot wide open only portraits, with flare and dream-like bokeh. The center should be tack sharp though. Which 50/55mm 1.2 lens would you recommend?

Thanks!

If this is the look you want (recently posted photo) I recommend 55mm 1.2 SC or AI:

This one was with the 55mm 1.2 S

Thanks Leighton!

Here are two more images with Nocton, this time I used it more appropriate, I think....

Stopped down a bit the lens is definitely sharper and renders better the colours...

wow Mihai - those 2 portraits shots are incredible. The blur looks like it was taken with a much longer lens but at the same time you can tell it's something shorter up close - what a great effect. The B&W works well too.

Thanks Ben. Actually the guy was very close to me, talking to me and to another guy at my left. It was almost the MFD for the lens. I took my camera and I did a couple of shots... without any warning... I am a hunter and I try to steal images.

Ok I go on Vacation for two little weeks and 61 pages have gone by along with more new members to the thread. It might take me a while to read all of that! We've had a great time over the last two weeks with a lot of photos taken. Here's one that I really liked. I call it " The Photographer" Taken with my D7000 and the 16mm 3.5 F8 1/200 This is a down payment on many hours of editing to follow



What a beautiful shot !!

Rafael;

You don't need all your 55/1.2's, do you??

Great shots. I need one of those lenses.

Ok, "want".

We're having lovely autumn weather. Here's a panorama i created in Photoshop from four images taken this afternoon at the edge of San Francisco Bay not for from the entrance of San Quentin penitentiary with the 180 f/2.8 AI-s mounted I've shared photos of the San Rafael-Richmond bridge before. The image is 1600 pixels wide. Enjoy.

On the left you see tanks used by the Chevron refinery located on the opposite side of the hill. You can make out a tanker to the right of the bridge. There is a dock for off-laoding tankers at that location. Super tankers are not

Spectacular, Curtis !! That's the best view of the bridge I have even seen. Very well done !!
