Re: Which 50mm lens to buy?

Best? 50mm f1.2

Most practical? 50mm f1.4

I have the 1.2. I love it. It's sharp, great bokeh. It's big and heavy.

I had the 1.4. It's sharp (from 2.8 on) and okay bokeh. It's a lot smaller and lighter. It's also 1/3 the price. So unless you have to have 1.2 the 1.4 makes more sense. (IMO)
