On the 50mm 1.2, 1.8 and 58 1.4...
12

I finally made my way in to NYC and B&H to handle the 50mm 1.2. It wasn't too busy, so I did some quick swap outs with my 1.8 and 58mm 1.4 and had my son maintain his position as I shot off some images. Focus is on his right eye and the shots are SOC via Capture One using Z6 Prostandard profile... no other adjustments.

I certainly don't offer these for anything meaningful, and I certainly appreciate that the lens is for use outside of this setting... but they wouldn't let me roam of with it

I don't expect that these will be super helpful... but I figured I would share.

I have the experience of owning all the 1.4G primes, 70-200vr2 and z 24-70 2.8s as well as all of the z primes, and I have no hesitancy in saying that the 50mm 1.2 felt like a performance machine. The focusing ring was butter and the weight was far more balanced then my 24-70. I was actually surprised by its lack of heft. It is undeniably solid, but not at all as heavy as some reviewers make it sound. IMHO
