DJL329, thanks for catching that.  I was thinking of the 85.  I agree with the comments you made regarding the 50 f/1.8 and the 40 f/2.8.

I believe you're conflating the 50mm f/1.4 USM and the 50mm f/1.2 L II USM, which is confusing some folks.  there's a vast price difference between the two.

if you're referring to the 50 f/1.4 USM, yes, at ~$350 US or so it's a great price for a great lens.

if you're referring to the 50 f/1.2 L II USM, at ~$1500 US or so it's probably not a best first-purchase lens unless you really know for sure it's what you want.  even if you know a 50mm focal length and wide-open shooting is what you want, a lot of people still decide to go with the cheaper 50 f/1.4 USM instead.

oh thats my fault. I meant I am getting then 50mm 1.4 over the 50mm 1.2.

but on another note, this forum is great and just a wealth of information.

Thank you everyone for your help.
