And it's a wonderful lens. My only gripe is that it goes from f1.2 to f2 with no stops in between...

Yes, the fact it jumps so far on the aperture ring is something I have always found odd.

Longtime small gripe of mine with Minolta MD lenses - especially when that first gap is 1 1/2 stops and it's too narrow to rest on easily.

My Canon FL 55/1.2 has a stop for f/1.4 and I use it a lot. (Makes it my poor man's Otus.)
