Good luck, but what was wrong with the 50/1.4? Why is that a "stupid combo" with the V1? IMHO, it is a perfect combo for these kinds of images and would even look better if taken with it, assuming we are talking about the same 50/1.4...

Ok for a start, i was like just 2 meters away taking the first pict. try that on the 50 mm.

Sharpness on the 50 mm 1.4 ? it not sharp, its only sharp once its stopped down to say 1.8 onwards.

And seriously if i have to stand that far away to get a full face shot, i might as well use the 30-110 zoom and stand a bit further. And with no image stabilizer on the 50 mm trying to act as 135 mm, good luck.

So while 50mm 1.4 on V1, some would love it, i consider it stupid cobo cause, with all the problems mentioned above, u could do a good job with the 50 mm 1.8 if you need AF...and smaller.
