Canon 50mm F 0.95 lens
Thanks a lot, you are an absolute life/money saver ! I had not even heard about the 40/0.85 ! Now I am going to follow that and check out the noktor as soon as I can
I am right now thinking seriously about 85/1.2, but I am not in a huge rush to buy one !
Thanks a lot once again !

No. Any TV lens is hardly going to win in picture quality against a dedicated SLR lens.
2. Is the price fair at USD 2700 ?
For the 50/1.0L maybe... but for a legacy TV lens? Not even Zeiss commands that kind of price.
3. Is the rangefinder or is the TV version the rage/ the one with the dream quality ?
Rangefinder 50/0.95 is the "dream lens"
BTW I saw the 50mm F 1.0, also which was ridiculously priced at USD 6575/-.
Which probably explains the pricing of the TV lens...
Hope to get your thoughts and inputs to help me save money or making a right investment !
Save your money. There are other, much cheaper, 50/0.XX lenses for APS-C on mirrorless. In fact, one of the more interesting lenses is the upcoming 40/0.85
Then there is the highly regarded Noktor, which you can get somewhat cheaper without the rangefinder coupling.-- hide signature --
If money was not an issue for a lifetime - what would you be doing instead of what you do now ?
