I have the 50 MD 1.4 and agree its a stellar lens. Bokeh is fabulous. I have just bought the 50 1.2 and am waiting on it. I would like a 58 1.2 but they are a bit pricey. Especially when Fuji has sharp wide open 1.2 bokeh machine with fantastic AF in their 56 1.2 for only twice the price of a 58 1.2 in good condition.

Greg.

My friend has the 50 1.2 and it produces results on par with the 58 I have.  While the cult status of these lenses ebbs and flows, no one can argue both the 50 and 58 were premium lenses (and the 50 isn't exactly cheap).  While the copy of the 58 I got was BGN on KEH,  it looks brand new and I don't see anything wrong with it.  I love those guys.  As for the normal cost, it is pretty high.

I think it's cool Fuji has an affordale 56 1.2.  Canon's 50 1.2 Af is $2500+.  Unfortunately I don't have a Fuji camera either.  One system is already too much to keep up with.

Look forward to seeing samples from your 50 1.2!
