Probably won't satisfy critics, but I'm liking the results so far. Can't wait to shoot portraits with it.

I read the review before Laroque removed it.   What I can see already from his shots is that 56/1.2 has a certain character and sure to become one of the famous lenses around.  I can see the character and it reminds me of another lens but I can't put my finger on what.    Perhaps something Leica-like in just how the lens is rendering?
