Re: Why not the 50/2 Ai?

I will see when i have the Lens.

but nothing like the 50/1,2 (which I had - too large, heavy, and I tend to shoot at 2 or higher anyway).

Same for me, Sold them because of the Lack of Sharpness @ F/1.2 + the very big Ghosting.

I'm not sure you will find the 2 that much sharper at 2. The 1,2 is very sharp at 1,2, but with light coming at the wrong angle, the image is soft because of 'ghosting' as you call it. The ghosting can be fixed with a bit of PP, but it does take some time.

Overall, though, the f/2,0 is much easier to use, lighter, with less field curvature, slightly less annoying bokeh, and at similar apertures, sharper. Both are great lenses, but I stopped caring about superspeed lenses a while ago. Plus... for 5000¥, the 2,0 is a steal.
