Through the 50 1.2 - Brother

My brother stayed with us for a while. We drove around Minneapolis, went to the farmers market, got cupcakes - all that fun stuff.

While my 50 1.4 is being tuned and tweaked by the good folks at Canon, I am left with a hole to fill. I decided to fill that hole with a rental of Canons 50 1.2L.

 

I've read good and bad things. Regardless of the fact that it didn't live up to the hype that people were giving it, and the focusing issues that are easily dismissed once you know what you're working with. I find the 1.2 more than adequate. There were some shots straight out of camera that had my say, "wow," grinning like a kid in a candy shop. However (like anyones issue), can I afford that price tag? No. No I cannot.

 

Owning the 50 1.4 and having been shooting it for quite some time now, I see no need to upgrade. No need to empty my wallet and scrape up nickels and dimes to own it. It's a matter of 'want' and 'need,' and what I have works wonders already.
