Your favourite legacy lens not quite up to it any more?

Re: Your favourite legacy lens not quite up to it any more?

My FD 55mm f1.2 is certainly less sharp than my 20mm f1.7 (particularly before i stop down a good bit), but I don't like it any less. Clinical sharpness is overrated in a lot of situations, particularly for taking photos of people who you don't want to hate you later. The old lens is great here.

Edit: Just saw the post above mine: The one place where the old lens definitely isn't up for it is size/weight. I don't use it that much now but it's because I don't want to carry it around, not that I don't like its optics.
