Why no use an f1.4 FF lens in the first place? Maybe you like the character. Make sure it's the character you like and not the speed, unless if you have to use APSC, in which case this may work out.

Because the whole point to me of adapted lenses is character, imperfections and signature looks (such as swirl, bubbles, softness etc).

There's no point to me in buying vintage glass that gives 'perfect' photos - I've got a stable full of Canon L glass for that. I do the shoot or whatever, and then break out the fun glass for 5 minutes at the end to get some unique pics.

Please, all that read my comment, don’t be discouraged. I also have all kinds of good, ugly, odd, characterful optics. My point is f1.2 Apsc is like 1.8 FF, bokeh wise.
