Re: Makro-Planar T* 2/50 or Planar T* 1.4/50 which is better for portrait

I cannot do a comparison, but I can say, for me, the 50mm Macro-Planar is THE lens for portraits along with its longer brother, the 100mm Macro-Planar. Both are f2.0, no problem with today's iso capable DSLRs and as for not being real macro, I bought them for there characteristics in portrait photography...

100mm at f2.0 available light

100mm at f2.0 available light from a computer...

50mm at f2.0 available light

And one from the new 25mm Distagon...
