Rendering Style of the Sony FE 50mm f/1.2 GM: Best Ever in a 50mm Lens?

I’ll be home in less than a week when I can properly present the material I’ve been shooting.

But what a frustrating trip—worst ever in productivity, because 8 of 10 days have been so windy that photography ranged from challenging to a total waste of time (camera vibration). Yesterday it was 30 mph gusting to 50 mph and cold too—constant buffetting very unpleasant and very drying at 10% humidity. But even a 20-30 mph steady wind is a severe problem for image sharpness. A week in the White Mountains yielded 2 useful shoots and that's it.

Anyway, the Sony FE 50mm f/1.2 GM continues to impress in having the best rendering style I’ve ever seen in a 50mm lens (can anything top it at any focal length?), and it’s a stunning performer wide open for landscape too. It deserves legendary status at its debut, IMO.
