    I would sell you mine, but I have one with "QC issues". :mad:

    Focus is hit or miss, build is :ugh:, has more PF than the 1.8 I had, and barrel distortion is very noticeable.

    That being said, it's the lens I use the most :rofl:

    If you want to see some samples, check my kids site. I'd say 90% of the shots are with the 50 1.4. [ignore the gay text, its for my mom who lives a bit away from us]

    :dunno: I'd rather not sell you a shit lens, but if you really want it, make me an offer.


    edit:

    I was happier with the 1.8 I had, so you may want to explore that option if that fraction of stop is not important to you.

    sorry if it had different optics i would go for it, but i already have the plastic fantastic. 1.4 reasons: I prefer the bokeh, color and sharpness when stopped down. but i know its shit wide open. oh yeah and FTM focusing
