    i was trying to learn about this lens, i seems to have a horrible reputation. i have read no good reviews about it, however it seems to hold its value well in spite of that. does anyone shoot with these, on a regular basis?

    on ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/Canon-EF-50mm-1...oryZ3323QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem in poland for crying out now, is a lot of money!
    or http://cgi.ebay.com/RARE-CANON-EF-5...oryZ3323QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
    the F1.2 isnt even close...

    an actual noctilux is 6 grand :hsugh:

    that much money for a 50mm? :hsugh:

    what makes it "so much better" than a 1.2 or a 1.4 that it demands $4000+ :ugh:

    Niche lens with absolutely NO practical purpose whatsoever. :bowrofl:

    It's only $4k because so few were made, not because it's a good lens. It's softer than bathtub full of pudding and puppies.

    entirely for camera collectors. some ass fuck on POTN paid $100 for a 50 1.0 box :bowrofl:



    the new 50 1.2 is actually pretty decent

    the box? :ugh:
    i dont see the appeal of collecting a plastic lens... especially with a reputation like this.
