    The 50f1.2 is one of the few Zuikos I don't have, and have little desire for. The photos I've seen from it look soft and noticeably less attractive than from the f1.4. And even my f1.4 hardly ever gets used. As others have pointed out the f1.8 is a beautiful little lens, and the MIJ version is sharp enough to shave with.

    The 1.2 has a very distinct look to it compared to the others. Honestly, probably the best 50mm Zuiko is the 3.5 Macro.

    When you turn your camera on, does it return the favor?

    i´d say one must search for the lens of his taste, because there are more zuiko 50s which have something to offer -
    55/1.2 has very special rendering wide-open with nervous curly bokeh, but is rather soft and takes 55mm filters which is a disadvantage. I won´t go for it unless you want to shoot wide-open.
    50/1.2 has nice creamy bokeh, better sharpness and less CA, but also less character. advantage - 49mm filters
    50/1.4 >1.1M sn: I´d say it´s as precise as zeiss, but with different colours
    50/1.8 late MC or MIJ: some say "rangefinder-ly" sharp, I would grade it as most-sharp non-macro
    50/2 macro: great sharpness acros whole frame, nice and smooth bokeh, you won´t believe your eyes how it can take portraits

    personally, I would choose 55/1.2 for character and 50/1.8MIJ for sharpness

    I only have the 1.2 in Pentax and Minolta so I can't really say just how much lovelier the results from the Olympus will be until I get one . . .

    How do you compare 50/1.2 with 85/2.0?

    Holga 120GFN: Amazingly simple yet it produces outstanding negatives to print.
