Re: Canon EF 50mm f/1.2 L USM lens

I have the first generation EF 85mm 1.2L which has some kind of dramatic way of rendering at 1.2. The background is like a painting and the subject sharp. It’s easily one my favourite lenses.

Would the EF 50mm 1.2L bring something extra compared to the Nikon 50mm 1.4G or the classic Planar 1.4/50 ZF.2?

Hi Igor,

Hopefully someone will chime in with regards to the two lenses you mentioned. I don't have a clue on them since I only use AF lenses.
