I just pushed the button on this lens. I had already kind of decided that I was willing to try something a little different or maybe even specialized this go around. I am a little unsure how it will work out for portrait type work but I will soon see.

You'll be ok. ;)

I think you're going to love the image quality and color rendering. If there is anything you won't like so much it is the "long throw" of the focusing ring. It has a large range of adjustment due to the macro capability of the lens so a little more turning is involved in achieving focus.

That being said however, it's the best 50 I've ever used...I certainly wouldn't give it up.

Is it Tuesday yet, I can't wait for this lens to show up. I am not so impressed with the close range shooting of the other 50's that I am using and but given the nature of this lens I am very excited to see what it will do.

My intended uses are

Macro, walk around for more people than gp (35mm is the best for gp walk around IMO), that little gap for portrait/photo shoots in between my 35 and 70-200, and attempt some landscape type stuff with it, not the most popular focal length for this I know and I am very impatient so I doubt this will go very far.

I have really only been shooting at test charts. I took a few around the house but I will not post any more of the fooling around shots here. I will post some better shots when I get a chance. I will say that you were right this lens is easy to focus and with the cameras auto conformation it works great. I will get a special focusing screen when I figure out which is the best. No back focus problems I am quite happy with it and it only took a few minutes to know I was keeping it. I can't wait to see how it works for portrait sessions although it seems to be very versatile so there will be endless uses for this lens.

Don't get hung up on the test chart thingy. ;) I remember you posting your riffs on the other 50s you've shot and I understand your frustration. It will all go away once you get this bad boy out in the wild. Enjoy! :)
