So My old nifty fifty's AF motor just bit the dust a few days ago and has been having issues for the last year. I have been considering the following lenses to replace it:
Zeiss 50 f/1.4 Manual focus
Canon 50 f/1.2L AF
A New(er) Nifty Fifty.
I will be receiving the Zeiss and L on Monday to compare all 3. My standard method of testing is: Tripod and shoot about 100-200 photos with my 3 bodies under various lighting/conditions. I also go out and walk around with them (I will have the rentals for two weeks) and just shoot whatever. I will AFMA the 50 f/1.2 and check to see if there is a large amount of focus shift @ f/2, 2.8 and 4. I feel after that point the DOF SHOULD be deep enough to hide it at an average shooting distance. Any other recommendations/advice?
I just am looking to replace a lens I love that has after 6 years (dropped once, stupid cat) never caused me a problem.
