Canon 50mm f1.2 vs. f1.4 vs f1.8?
Jan 1, 2008

Does anyone see enough of a difference between the two lenses to justify $1000 difference in price? I really liked the f1.2 I rented, but find it hard to come to terms with the price vis a vis the 1.4. I have the 1.8, now, and will be moving up sometime in the near future. For that matter, does anyone see enough of a difference between the f1.4 and f1.8?

I'm in the process of getting in the position to use more fixed focal length lenses for weddings and receptions, wanting to get more natural light work with faster lenses.
