Quote:I am a little confused... if this lens model has a known issue, why even consider it not for the first, but for the second time?
A Sigma 50/1.4 EX may be a better choice, let alone one of the modern units (Sigma 50/1.4 A, Tamron 45/1.8...)
Because Canonverse seriously lacks a decent 50mm.
-Sigma EX is huge and AF is unreliable
-Sigma ART is even bigger and AF is still unreliable
-Any version of 50/1.8 EF will have unpleasant bokeh
-50/1.4 is mediocre, just like any 50/1.4 design from 80s/early 90s but it's also the most fragile one of them all (Sony/Minolta/Nikon etc.)
-50/1.2 is not that great of a performer, people usually buy it out of frustration after dealing with the other Canon 50mm. At least this one won't break, right?
