Re: F1.2 pro glass

The 17 1.2 has a noticeable advantage for subject isolation in some types of street photography. At the sort of subject distances where a person fills the height of the frame in portrait or landscape...

Re: F1.2 pro glass

You could try the f/1.8 primes - I have used the 25 and 45 a lot and found both very good. And you should get them for a lot less outlay! In fact I got the 25/1.8 used from somebody here on the forum...
