5D II - 50mm Options
Mar 16, 2009


I'm in the market for the best 50 mm available for 5D II. I already own the 35L & 135L, so I'm looking for similar quality. I also shoot wide open quite a bit.

I really do want to get the 50L, but on the fence due to the focus shift issues I'm reading about. I'm not a pixel peeper, so as long as the image looks good printed at a reasonable size (11x14), I'm just fine.

Considering this, is 50L worth the risk? Could you guys post examples of the infamous focus shift?

I'm also looking at Zeiss ZE 50 1.4 - is the 50L way better then Zeiss when it works right?
