    Canon's super-speed lens of the 1950s.

    When looking for one, be sure to have inspection and return privilige. The surface behind the aperture blades is subject to haze, coating damage, and glass etching. Get a good one, classic old-school rendering. I have had two of them, but sold the second one after getting the 50/1.1 Nokton.

    On film, on the Canon 7. This lens is well balanced on the Canon 7, Canon P, and Leica M3. I also used it on the M2, the F1.2 was a stretch for the 0.72 finder.
