    I just picked up a beautiful copy of the Ais version to test against the Ai version. Hope to have some shots soon.

    Beautiful image. I agree the colors are super.
     
  7. Beautiful color Peter. What do you consider the biggest advantage of the f/1.2 over the f/1.4 AI-S, aside from 1/3 stop?

    Hi,

    the three reasons for me getting the f/1.2 over the f/1.4 were 9 aperture blades over 7, the 0.3 stop difference and the ready availability of the f/1.2 since I bought it new. Looks like the AIS f/1.4 is hard to get new, perhaps because of the popularity of the AF version.

    Thanks all for kind comments regarding the shot.
     
  9. Very nice color and sharp image.
     
  10. Thanks Peter. I guess my question should really be this...

    Since I primarily use the 105mm f/2.5 for portraiture and rarely shoot at apertures larger than f/4, do you still think it's advantageous to have the f/1.8 or is there really only going to be a difference at wide apertures and for shallow depth of field and bokeh? I'm sure I don't have to tell you this but even the f/2.5 has beautiful and very smooth bokeh.
