Re: Is the 50mm really not that good as an everyday lens?

The 50 f/1.2 has this focus shift issue if you stop down. Do some searches on it.... Wide open or stopped down a little, that lens is awesome. I own the 85 f/1.2 and I had a chance to borrow the 50 1.2 recently and it focuses much faster, the bokeh is just awesome and it's much lighter than the 85 1.2. Overall, I really like the lens, but not as an everyday lens that you would want to stop down past say f/2. The 50 1.2 is great at wide apertures.
