Re: If 32mm f1.2 costs $1000...

Lenses are like lovers - their specifications may entice you but it's performance that matters. I've known very few lenses I've truly loved. The 35mm f1.4 Nikon and the 35mm f1.4 Canon and the 50mm f1.2 Nikon are examples of lenses with specifications that sound cool but their performances have disappointed.

The lenses that have held my heart have been the 85mm f1.2 II Canon and the Nikon 85mm f1.4 D and the 28mm f1.4 D. The D's are amazing and the formula for their optics are no longer used.

I will wait and see how this 32mm f1.2 lens performs. If it's a great lens, it will be a great lens based on how it performs, not by the size of its glass and its maximum aperture.
