I can't verify the F1.2 bit, I tried some M12 supposedly f1.2's and they were no better than the F.2 standard E700 lens. I suspect its a play on tech spec wording because full F stop description is sometimes written as F1.1:2 or similar. Its a bit confusing to be fair.

It's be OK for a close range ratting spotter - note it's a C mount thread so doesnt screw directly into an E700 for an add on
