Canon nFD 50mm f1.2 - A New Favourite

Ceremic thingy -- NEX-5N & Canon nFD 50mm f1.2

After having my Canon nFD 50mm f1.2's stuck aperture fixed, I never really compared it to older brother, the FD 55mm f1.2 S.SC for image quality purposes.  But, as I use the nFD 50mm f1.2 more, I have grown to like it more then the 55mm f1.2 as a picture taking lens.  The 50/1.2 is smaller, lighter and optically slightly better wide open at f1.2.  It's really not much bigger than the nFD 50mm f1.4.  Like the 55mm f1.2 S.S.C, this one has the same beautiful picture rendering and bokeh.  I can't imagine what the FD 50mm f1.2L or the FD 50mm f1.2 Aspheric would be like.  If they are better than the vanilla nFD 50mm f1.2 then there is not much improvement on the EF 50mm f1.2L.
