If I were the buyer, I would be seriously dissapointed, considering its a $1000+ lens. I don't own 1.2L, however I have several 50mm lenses. Even my $50 pentax 55/1.8 or Canon 50/1.4 is way way sharper than the images mentioned here. The only good image of the set is the sweet child's portrait, and then its more because of the child and her dress than the lens itself. OP may upload few images with manual focus and ISO-100, just to confirm.

Thats it. You dont have the 50L. If you would have it, you would know that the 50L is different

Stop it down to 1.4 and the Canon 1.4 version looks not so nice anymore ;)

nothing wrong with your lens. the 50L scores lower than any other modern L lens on fred Miranda and look at all the controversy on this forum about that lens. I can name a few guys who bought the lens, loved it, whined about it, sold it and then bought it again. some have done the cycle a couple of times.

you are either going to love or hate the 50L, maybe both, and that guy clearly hates it. refund his money and relist the lens. there's a 50/50 chance the next guy will love it.

I agree. I was happy with this lens when I had it, I shot some amazing portraits with it and am more than happy to refund him if he doesn't want it. It's not like I was desperate to get rid of it I just wasn't using it enough.

I have explained this to him but I can't deal with the headache anymore, if he wants it he can keep it if he doesn't then i'll happily take it back and refund him excluding £12 postage.

I called fixation earlier to ask them to give me a quote for calibration and the guy said we can't really say until we have tested the lens it however if it does need repair it will cost between £90 to £130 which I am more than happy to pay to get this lens sorted if needed.

Like you say people views are mixed so until fixation check it out I wont know properly if the lens really has issues. I have given him until tomorrow to decide once he sends it back I will test it myself again and then send it out to get sorted if I feel it has any problems.

Salma,

if you were unhappy with the 50L's ability with your camera body, it may be worth sending in both the lens and body to that company to see if they can calibrate the two together.

of course, a con to that would be if they had to adjust your body, then your other lenses may end up a little off...

Here's another Lemur photo with this lens. It's only close ups that are a real problem.

That's what worries me. Calibrating that lens with my camera and causing issues for my other lenses bit of a nightmare.

By the way guys. Image quality via photobucket looks VERY bad on here. You can see the detail better if you click the images and open in photobucket.

Don't worry. The camera has around 20 (I guess) memories, on for each focal length. So, any changes they would do would only be "active" when the 50mm is on the camera. Please notice: with any other 50mm it could, again, be discalibrated, though.

This is such a nightmare. My head hurts thinking about all this. I should've got this sorted when I first got the lens and thought it was too soft at 1.2.
