|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Minolta 50mm f1.7, minolta 50mm f2.8 macro, sigma art 50mm f1.4, sony 50mm f1.8, sony 50mm f2.5, sony 35mm f1.8 for sony aps-c. Various other Sony GM primes.|
|price paid:||2100 gbp|
|positive:||sharp, fast focussing, f1.2.|
|negative:||Depending on how you look at it, the price. It's expensive but compared to other f1.2 50mm from Canon and Nikon, its actually cheaper.|
|comment:||Sold my sigma art 50mm for this. The sigma is excellent and a sharp lens, but this is better in every way. |
It is by far the best 50mm I have ever used and I have used a few and I still own 6, including this one.
Along with the 135mm gm and 35mm gm this is my most used lens. Think this one just beats the 35mm gm for sharpmess, not sure whether the 135 gm is sharper, if it is only by a whisker.
Worth every penny.
