but OTOH, the 60/2.4 is already so darn nice!

Wide open, high contrast scene, and yet super-sharp and with virtually no fringing (LoCA):

And super-smooth bokeh even stopped down (at f/5.6 here):

As good as it may be, I honestly don't think the 56 can be any better - 'just' two stops faster...

Mmmmh... decisions, decisions...


I don't really see a point to an f1.2...I guess on an APS-C sensor it would be closer in DOF to a f1.4 and being cropped wouldn't have the awful vignetting you would get with a ff 1.2.  But honestly, the speed you get is offset by much too narrow DOF for most situations.
