Subject: [Leica] Canon f1.2 50mm

Has anyone tried the Canon f1.2 50mm lens on an M8 or a micro 3/4 
camera? I have a pristine Canon lens with a Leica screw mount that I 
used with an adaptor on an M3 years ago. Wide open the lens was soft 
but OK for available light work except that the corners of the image 
were fuzzy. It seems that if only the central portion of image circle 
is used, the lens might be good for interior work. Unfortunately I have 
no suitable digital camera to try it out.
