    I'm going to pick up the 50mm 1.4

    Even though it's manual focus.

    What's the reasoning behind not just getting the Canon 50 f1.4, some hookers and some blow? Sharpness? I'd rather sacrifice a bit of sharpness for not having to auto focus but then again I shoot things that move.

    I had the canon 1.4 and enjoyed it, but supposedly this will blow it out the water. I do mostly still modeling, so I think it will work well for me. If not I'll sell and go back with canon :dunno:

    Of the Zeiss lenses, everything I've read indicates that the 1.4/50 is the worst of their line. :hs:

    I think it still may be better than the Canon 50 1.4, but I'm not sure that it's 2x the price better.

    The 1.4/85 makes my cock as hard as doing multivariate calculus in the Laker Girls locker room though. :wackit:
