Getting a little off topic here, but --

I don't disagree about the light falloff and sometimes distracting bokeh on the 50/1.2, but if your copy is "soft as a cloud" wide open, then there's something wrong. Unless maybe you're talking edge performance. There is definitely a loss of contrast, and you have to really nail the focus, but otherwise I've found it pretty sharp wide open.


Agreed - my 50/1.2 is the same. Very low contrast at the maximum aperture, but plenty of sharpness and detail near the centre of the frame at f/1.2, especially once the focus distance is more than two feet or so.
