Wow, this lens. I don’t have it. I shoot almost exclusively with adapted film lenses because I find that most of the digital ones lack personality and character. But man, when I see the images this lens produces, I take notice. If I were to invest in one digital lens, this would be the one.

I made a comparison between the 42.5 1.2, the 25 1.4, and a normal cheap zoom lens (14-140mm). With the exact same settings on all 3 lenses, you could definitely see more vibrant colors and more contrast (and sharper too) with the 42.5

One observation I have made after looking at the images from this lens is that despite some really beautiful and creamy bokeh, the bokeh balls are not round, but cat-eye shaped. This disappoints me. I suppose you can’t have everything.

Personally I am not bothered by it, I find it adds some 3d look to it. But one thing I do have to complain just a bit is the chromatic aberration. (Which can be removed easily in post). The picture I posted earlier was a sooc jpg.
