As a film shooter, I've come to appreciate my 50/1.8 more. Unfortunately, one thing slightly irks me about it, and that is the focus ring has a smidge of slop to it. It's entirely psychological; that is, the lens function isn't really affected. However, it does affect me, and a CLA/regrease didn't tighten it up enough to make me happy. So I was browsing around eBay the other day and stumbled across a 50mm f/2 AI in really nice condition. I asked the seller how the focus ring action was, and after getting juuust the right answer, I went after it. Unfortunately, I need to wait a while for it, but good things are usually worth a little waiting. 50/1.8 and 50/2. Were I "practical", I would have instead gotten a 28mm or other wide angle lens to fill the gap (I have nothing wider than 50mm). I could have gotten a 50/1.4 for the same price, but I was more interested in the 50/2. Perhaps in the future I'll add a 50/1.2 :biggrin: Who else here has shameless overlap in their collections?
