Re: No M series

I have the A 1.2/50. Of course, it has the A setting. The A version has 9 blades, the M had 8 if i recall. Not sure about the optical formula.

It's nice for those super-low light situations, or for uber-bokeh portraits. There's plenty of dof control on aps-c, there's no need for more than that (read FF)  imho. Focus is very hard to acheive...
