i had the 50 f2 and it was wonderful. But, I didnt get the bokeh I was looking for. The planar is ok, but I don't lik ethe busy bokeh and it slightly soft as well. The Nikon 50 1.2 has a little less contrast thant the Zeiss but overall it renders much nicer images for my taste. needles to sat at f2 or 2.8 it rocks and incredibly sharp not to mention build quality. I have often thought of buying another one just in case they become really hard to get one day.

Thanks, that's interesting. I know every time I think I don't need mine, I'll take it out and I instantly change my mind.
As far as the FL is concerned, I have it covered with the 28-50mm f3.8, the 50-135mm f3.5 and the 55mm f2.8 micro. But there's just something about the color and contrast output that sets this apart from those.
Absolutely, Leighton. The 50 f/1.2 is a magical lens and I fully agree that it has some qualities that the rest of my lenses don't.
Here's one from the Rolous Group, Cambodia taken with the 50mm.
Dean, I have loved ALL of your shots from Cambodia. Please take me with you the next time you go.
Let me second that. A trip of a life time for sure and I love how you recorded it!!
So it's official - the 2013 NMFAS sufferers support group meeting will be in Hong Kong & Cambodia with Dean as tour guide.
Let me be the first to say that IF we could pull off something like that I'd be on the list. When Rinie and I were active on TrekEarth there were quite a few such gatherings, though I never attended. Rinie hosted one such meeting in Rotterdam that had a great turnout... over 20 people I believe. Of course, most of the folks active on that site lived in Europe so the trip wasn't overly expensive. I didn't go simply because the cost seemed so high. Of course, that was before Rinie and I began traveling as part of our friendship.
Save your money folks. I think Rinie and I will head to Southeast Asia the end of next October and would love to have company.
