    I have noticed a few of these cropping up on eBay in Japan for around $400 USD. That seems reasonable value for a f/1.2 lens.

    The only thing that surprises me is the bokeh which you could hardly call pleasing.

    I would like to see a few more shots and your opinion of the lens in use with the E-P2

    Pleasing as in "too brokeh"?
    - Taste on brokeh is often stated to be personal, but with F1.2 you can go for very narrow focus plane...

    Oh, I like the photes, they deserve a

    the bokeh on this lens does seem to be a bit schizophrenic - sometimes rather pleasing other times a little harsh.

    nailing focus on the E-p1 is a little tricky wide open, maybe with evf it would be a little easier, but over all i like the results i get with it. It also stops down nicely. Also wide open is has an odd glow which can work in some situations

    here are a couple more shots with it -

    first one with the e-p1

    then a couple on the E-510

    and finally on a full frame Canon 5d Mk2

    Did some trainspotting today with fairly bad light towards dusk. The 50/1.2 comes in handy here, allowing high shutter speeds with reasonable sensitivity. This one is taken with f/2.8 - 1/1600 s - ISO 400.

    The 55mm f1.2 Nikkor excels at the wider stops - this was somewhere between 1.2 and 2.0 on an Olympus EPL1. 6/30/12 Hollywood, CA.
