Finally settled on a Prime Lens for my S1R
5

I have the Panasonic S1R and settled on the "Normal" Prime I will be doing my shooting with (except for Street- the Sigma 35mm ART for that!) and it's actually like a 10 year old lens.

I have the MC-21.. and with the MC-21 I can use the Canon Mount "EF" lenses, which also means I can use the Zeiss Planar 50mm F1.4 *and* have my EXIF data!

Lightroom also has a profile for this lens, so I don't have to worry about manually fixing distortion, etc.

From f1.4 to 1.8 and to 4.0 it's almost like Three Different Lenses.

F1.4 is kinda dreamy with lovely bokeh, f1.8 sharpens up and bokeh changes, and f4.0 it's clinical Zeiss sharpness.
