OK. I did peruse the archives and Dr. Reese's tests for this one and gained 
some insight. Because I like to shoot available light, my interest has 
naturally gone to the 50mm f/1.2. From everything I've read, it's superior 
to the 55/1.2 AND uses 49mm filters AND is always MC. So, that distinction 
is easy to make.

I'm thinking the real comparison is with the 50/1.4. 1.2 ain't that much 
faster so I'm wondering if a late, MC 1.4 might not just be better value 
overall. Or, does the 50/1.2 have any special qualities beyond simply being 

BTW, I'm currently shooting with a 50/1.8 MIJ and it's a durn good 'un.
