This is the greatest street photography lens that doesn't have the name Leica written on it. Just spectacular results. Produced gorgeous images with creamy bokeh. Coupled with the D800/810- Wow! Focus is superb. 1.2 w/manual focus engenders serious creativity.
It is wonderful that Nikon still makes simple, robust, all-manual lenses. Not only are they a pleasure to feel and hold, they are a pleasure to use.The 50mm Ai-S f/1.2 Ai-S not only takes great portraits and is superb for general photography, but you can reverse it (using the Nikon Nikon BR-2A...
The bokeh is odd-shaped (crooked ovals) and the lens has tons of flare, which I'm unaccustomed to in my other fast Nikkor primes (85mm f/1.4 D, for example). But I kept it because it's a gorgeously made precision instrument.
My first 50 was canon 1.4 which was okay. I, however, wanted a better build and optical quality. It is important for me lenses "feel" right because i am tactile person (lack of AF is not a concern).
nice bokeh (to my taste), solid build, wide aperture, very sharp stopped down, reasonable sharpness wide open with a dreamy effect, light and compact
I have several classic Nikon AIS manual focus lenses, so this was a no-brainer. Yes, I like autofocus, but there is something about the old-school quality of a classic manual focus Nikkor lens. I shoot both digital and film occasionally, so this works well on all of my cameras.
If you don't mind manual focus, this lens is a pure pleasure to operate. The craftsmanship is exceptional and the picture quality, as long as you know what your doing, is one of the best. I use the lens on my D700 and F6.
This lens really surprised me. I bought a used one, for a very good price, because of mixed review over the internet. Let me tell you, if anyone believe this lens isn't sharp, that person doesn't know how to use it.
Very Very good lens that you can get -A bit expensive still worth the money ..gives you the joy of shooting, one of Nikons best !
Lo he utilizado en mi Nikon D810 y presenta un vieteo que le da un toque muy especial a los retratos. En su apertura f/1.2 produce un bokeh muy lindo destacando los primeros planos, en F/5.6 entrega una calidad sobresaliente muy igual o algo superior al 50mm f/1,4G de NIKON.
Incredible lense! It's a great pleasure to photograph with![*]I guess there is a little back focusing with the D90 I have, not sure about it as I shoot handheld, there is a shift in colour and contrast for sure - getting warmer when close to 1.2, you can see it in the samples And again - amazing!
