Call me retro... But I just bought a 5D classic :)) lens quick advice
Oct 17, 2012

Good evening,

After too much thinking I bought a mint 5D just serviced by Canon, the camera also has a new shutter so it is ready to give me hopefully years of service. my first lens will be a 50mm, almost sure will be the 1.4 usm, but I wonder if you have experience with the Nikon AIS 50mm 1.2 on a Canon camera... I like atmospheric, with narrow DoF shots, so do you think it is much difference between 1.2 and 1.4? Is it worthy losing AF for half stop? I wish I could get the Canon 1.2 L but I can't so I am narrowing my options to these two. (don't like Sigma)

kind regards,
