Re: 'Legendary' status

Totally subjective but fun: which lenses are considered as a 'Legend', whatever the reason? [...]

- Canon 50/1.4 New FD

This is the only lens on your list that I have. I like it a lot, and if I had to keep only one lens, this might be it. That said, I'm not sure I would call it legendary. It's fine at f/2.8, but the corners go at f/2 and even the center at f/1.4. Furthermore, it has longitudinal CA. What do you see in it that I am missing?

Regards,

Alan
