Thanks for sharing your impressions!

I happened on an old MC Rokkor-PG 50/1.4 last year for $15 (sorry - can't keep from bragging) and it is my favorite all-round 50mm. Stopped down to f/2, it is sharper and has better BOKEH than my Leitz Summicron-R 50mm wide open.

I concur, the 45mm and 50mm non-Rokkor are not so great, though I did find that the former can still blow the pants off my APS-C rig at certain settings. (Really not feeling the colors, though.)

This is the place to brag :).  That is great to hear it can compete with the Leitz.  All the samples I have seen make it easy to believe.  I was looking for an MC 50 1.4 until I got the 58/1.2.  I would still pick one up if I saw an affordable copy (15 bucks!)  I really like 50 on APS-C.
