I've been waiting for a good condition copy to come around on ebay. Of course, it doesn't help that their saved searches emails produce stuff outside of your refinements. I mostly have the less expensive 1.4, 1.7, 2.0s and these excellent captures are a great reason to finally bite the bullet.

Any chance you have used this with the lens turbo?

Yeah, I have many ~50mm legacy primes, all with their pro/cons. Of them all, this lens certainly has the most character -- I absolutely love it and feel it deserves its reputation. It's spendy, but you'll probably not regret adding it to your lineup.

Regarding a lens turbo, I don't own one (or even plan to), so I can't help you there; although I would assume the narrow DoF would be crazy wide open.
