On another point, I really hate posts like this, because they sometimes turn out to be very expensive. I've been trying to avoid the call of the 50 f/1.2, and this does not help!

Well, If you shoot at f2.8 as in the photo above, you can save your cash and go for the 1.8. It also weighs a (mini)ton.

Maybe I'm kidding myself, but there appears to me, at least, to be a quality to shots I've seen taken with the f/1.2 that's missing from shots taken with the f/1.8, even if they are both used at f/2.8.

But I'm in no immediate danger of buying the 50 f/1.2L.  There are several other lenses on my wish list ahead of it, like the TS-E 17mm.
