Pics with Canon 50mm f/1.4 LTM, please !

Hello,

I noticed that this forum makes the Canon or Serenar 50mm f/1.5 LTM price increase. The Sonnar formula is a great thing, I know. That is probably why the Canon or Serenar 50mm f/1.8 LTM often cost more than... the Canon 50mm f/1.4 LTM, double-Gauss formula.

I've used the Canon 50mm f/1.4 LTM last week-end in Paris, France. I thought we may just share some pics taken with this affordable gem. I love Sonnar lenses, but this one rocks too, IMO.

I also did a nice portrait of a friend of mine, once, with the same gear as upon : Minolta CLE + Canon 50mm f/1.4 LTM

Please share YOUR pics taken with this lens !


Regards from France,

Nicolas

Forget the 50/1.5, the 50/1.4 is a great lens, very special with its 6 elements, and with beautiful bokeh.

Nice pictures guys.

Roland, what do you think about the flare resistance of the lens? comparing to 50/1.5 canon? I have had copies of each lens and I have noticed copy variations. Most the canon 50/1.4 i had was very prone to flares.

Sonnars usually flare less, fbf. And I agree with you, I had different samples of the 1.4 that behaved a bit differently, both wrt. flare and resolution. But all 1.4 copies I had (flare-wise) behaved similar to, say, a DR Summicron. Also, the 1.4 is an easy lens to CLA.

Roland.

This is a Great photo!
I better go find myself a f1.4, master Ferider.
However, I'll still keep my f1.5

Yosemite and Big Sur photos make me so homesick for California. You picture makes me want to talk with a low voice, sip coffee, and listen for the sounds of birds and crunching sequoia needles.

Papercut: you want to get the haze out of the lens if possible. It can build on the surface behind the aperture, and is caused by the lubricants used for the helical. With the type of glass used by Canon, it can lead to etching.

Kevin, I can look at your 50 if you want. Thanks for the comments on the Yosemite pics, guys.

These days I do use a Summilux instead. But I agree with Mablo, the lenses are mostly equivalent. Except maybe for the Canon being a little less flare and coma resistant.

Brian,
Thanks for the info. I'll get it checked out. Hate to lose it to the creeping haze and etching!

Roland,

Sure, I'd be most obliged! (I had no idea you did lenswork, though now that I think about it, it makes sense given your knowledge and past posts.) Next Beer and Gear for a handoff?

Lens-work is like hunting mushrooms: I stay away from the ones I don't know. Have done a handful of Canon 50/1.4 lenses so far ....

I've got a couple of photos on my flickr, here a couple of photos of myself.
Self portrait at the mirror (t-max 100)


And in Verona (TRI-X 400 I believe)


I like this lens very much, although the bokeh is not top-notch, IMHO.

This lens is a winner on the M8. The crop factor makes up for the 3.5ft min focus distance.

Cleaning the glass is a 10 minute job if you have a lens spanner. I find the Canon lenses need to have the surface behind the aperture cleaned about every 3 years. Some do not, and I suspect the helicals were cleaned out and new lubricant put in. But that is a WAG.

It's a date, Roland (though perhaps we shouldn't tell our wives that).

This is my favourite lens! I love using it at f/1.4 in low light. Lately I've been catching soccer matches at a local pub with some friends and I've found the lens does great in low light and pushed film.








And here's couple at a smaller apertures, though I can't remember what I used, probably f/5.6 or f/8.

Not the best, these were scanned by WalMart, and one by the little photo printer/scanner here, but it's with the 50 1.4

Here are a couple of 50mm f/1.4 LTM shots from me.


Wide open.



And stopped down a bit, sorry I don't take notes when out taking pictures.

I think I may be confusing my lenses. My 50mm 1.4 has 9 blades. Didn't someone here mention that you guys are talking about a lens with 7 blades?

I just purchased this lens (the canon 50 f/1.4). It should be in early next week. Looking forward to it. Does anyone else have recent photos with this lens. Excellent shots posted so far.

I have a Canon 50f1.4 on my M3 with 400 ASA film but have not been able to get out to shoot with it. I have used the lens on a Canon 7 that was stolen and the lens is great. I had a wonderful Nikkor 50f2.0 on the Canon when it was stolen and I really miss that lens and the camera.

squinza, NICE photos. I can't wait for mine to arrive. The rendering looks very similar to the pre-asph 'lux (which is out of my reach).

Thank you!
Don't know the 'lux, but the Canon is a nice lens, even if I prefer the rendering of the 50/1.5.
I'm waiting for your photos!
