Hmm in the desperate quest for an AF 50mm prime that doesn't suck, I feel like I owe it to myself to try this lens. The 50L was wonderful, but the focus shift was horrible on the one I tried
, which turned me off.
This lens looks decent, sharp wide open from these samples, and the bokeh looks OK, not great
, but certainly much better than the Canon 50 1.4. HSM and internal focusing are a huge plus. I am getting quite sick of not having a good 50mm
, especially now that Nikon have an AF-S 50 1.4...
Not just the one you tried brother, the 50L is a dog.
Perry, this is twice I've read you dissing the bokeh, kinda strange as it's one of the standout bonuses with this lens. I think you'll find it to be nice and creamy, very similar to the 35L and 50L,,,,I understand bokeh quality is subjective, but, just wait and see before you dismiss it
