Let's do this for fun, lens 1 on 1 battles. The winner lens stays (determined after 3 days or 10 votes, whichever comes
first), and will face a new challenger lens in the next battle. We will see who will be the champion after many weeks. (I will update this post).

Please vote which lens will you keep for you and which one will you give to your friend.

FIGHT 2:

Minolta Rokkor PG 50mm f/1.4 (and variants)


vs

Canon FD 50mm 1.4 S.S.C (and variants)



Also, please nominate a new challenger for next round (50mm f/1.4).


Previous fights:
Fight 1: Minolta Rokkor PG 50mm f/1.4 vs Olympus G.Zuiko Auto-S 50mm f/1.4 (4vs2)

I'd keep the Rokkor especially if it is a PG MC. Probably so even if it is an MD like on the photo.

Zuiko for the rendering and bokeh (8 blades vs 6)
Although good luck finding the last version which is pictured...

I have never shot with the Zuiko so I can't say where my vote is fair. However I did like the Rokkor when I owned it so I will vote for it.

Does the competition have to be 50mm or does 50ish mm count. If the latter I nominate the Konica Hexanon 1.4/57 for the next round.

Is this a contest? if so should it be moved?

Zuiko! Even though I do not have Rokkor, it would hardly replace it.

Here is a shortcut to a very comprehensive blow out of several 50mm 1.4 lenses.

I love the FDs (FD and FDn) Smile

I vote for Rokkor. It's 4 for Rokkors vs 2 for Zuiko now.

Canon FDn 50 1.4 is up next for sure Razz

@newst, let's try to stick to 50 1.4 for now, maybe the Hexanon can be a special challenger Razz
