Gimme a great deal on the f2 and I'll take it off your hands ;o)

Take both of the zeiss lenses off my hands and I'll cut you a good deal. :)

Last weekend I went for a walk with MP 50mm. One thing that I forgot to mention...

On MP 50mm focus throw up to 5 meters is quite ok. From 5 meters to infinity focus throw is only about 5 mm in barrel surface. In 50mm f1,4 5 meters to 10 meters is about 5 mm in barrel surface and 10 meters to infinity is about 5-6mm in barrel surface. 50mm f1,4 has also longer focus throw for 1m to 5m than MP 50mm.

So MP 50mm is quite easy to use up to 5 m distances and 50mm f1,4 is more easy to use for 1-10 m distances. 50mm f1,4 has some extra focus throw for 10m to infinity distances.

Thanks! Fingers crossed it's here before the weekend! I have the EC-S focusing screen, but since it doesn't support metering and the VF goes dark with the 2470, I hope I don't need it.
