I've read reviews of the 50mm f/1.2 suggesting it isn't sharp wide open - I have to say this isn't my experience. The full size version of this shot is crystal clear and this is exactly what a 1.2 lens is perfect for - capturing shots in ambient light.

Camera handheld and manually focussed - always a challenge! The flash was off camera on a cord held by someone else!

Mum and Dad at sunset in Cyprus

I wanted to keep the sunset colours while properly exposing Mum & Dad. To do this I dialled in some negative exposure compensation and used on camera flash to expose my parents.
