56 1.2 alternatives
Mar 24, 2014

Ok so not all of us can afford the new killer 56 1.2.

These two options ive been considering and would like input from those who own or have been down this track already.

1. The XF60mm - still the best alternative option for a portrait lens at only $400?

2. Or would a fast legacy 50-58mm with adaptor be a very good option?

-50mm olympus m.zuiko 1.8

-50mm minolta rokkor 1.4

-58mm minolta rokkor 1.4

So these two ideas i have been considering, im really excited to give MF a go but i dont want to be disappointed when the 60 looks fantastic optically. also having the ability for some casual 1:2 macro would be a great bonus

Currently only have the 18-55 & the 27.
