Re: Who plans on getting the 56 1.2?

I have sever case of GAS so am alway tempted. I have not decided on 56 f1.2 yet, but I am looking forward to trying it at The photography show on 1 march in Birmingham.

My reasons for hesitation are:
a) I have the 60mm macro, which I love except it is so slooow

b) 56mm f1.2 close focus distance 0.7m (28 inches) is not quite close enough for me as I sometime like to get in close to isolate details (and would prefer not to carry both 60mm & 56mm round)

c) 90mm f1.8 with at least 1:2 macro (provided it does not cripple AF speed at normal focus distances) would interest me more. 23mm / 35mm / 90mm combo would take me almost back 30 years to my olympus system OM-10, 28mm, 50mm, 135mm. & I did see Don McCullin favoured a 28mm / 135mm combo (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Psnp2vXblfQ)
