[filmscanners] RE: film and scanning vs digital photography



Hi People,

I can verify that the front of the 50 1.4 does not rotate. Very nice
optics for the money, however don't count on or even bother using it at
F1.4, it's a mess. Stopping down to 1.8 improves things out of sight. 

Mark.

You are sure? That is good news!

With kind regards,
