revuenon 55 1.2 for 199€
May 14, 2012

Hi guys!

I own a FA 50 1.4, bought about a year ago (ebay) for 260€. As the AF is more fail than hit, am I using it in MF mode almoste exclusively (having had a M50 1.7 I bought this lens for AF... not really happy about it). In MF mode I am not so happy with it, as the focus way is bit long...;( and everything feels a little plastic and not smooth...;(

NOW I am wondering If I should give the Revuenon 55 1.2 a try. A seller nearby sells for 199€. If that works nice, I will sell my FA 50 1.4.

As it is an M lens, I think about drilling a hole in the mount, so that if I change aperture (at the lens), I can stay in Av mode, and see the difference in real time in my viewfinder...

Having a diy-Canon EE-S focusing screen focus should work. (also thinking about a magnifiyer cup)

Please, if you own a Revuenon 55 1.2 please post photos @1.2. And if you are bored, take some shots @1.2 and 1.4 where one can see the difference... (also full size would be appreciated!)

Thank you very much for your input!
