Besides the 50L & 85L & the FD versions (which can be converted into EF) what other choices are there for a 1.2 aperture for canon users.
I know of the minolta rokkor 58mm & 50mm 1.2 .. is there anything else which people are using on canon ?

When it comes to manic F1.2 you hardly left with any options! right now Canon is Undisputed King in 1.2's.

And there's always the canon 50mm f/1.0 if 1.2 is too slow!

That F1 lens was just way too crazy in price.

Not any other native mount lenses, but most major lens brands had a f1.2 50mm or 55mm lens. Nikon had several, Olympus had a 55 and 50mm, Pentax did too.

No .. only Leica - R will have adaptors to EOS mount ..

Leica M can be adapted to Sony NEX or Panasonic G series.
