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...

At 1.2 it’s not the sharpest but at 2-5.6 it’s by far the sharpest I’ve ever even seen in a lens! Love working with it definitely recommend!!!

A lens with a dual personality : At 1.2-1.4, you get a sharp center but the whole pic looks veiled and dreamy. I could get "underwater" rendering without ever getting wet. From f/2, it is as sharp as any modern 50mm lens, and flares reasonably.

    High barrel distortion, some CA

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

Purchased this lens to go along with my Nikon F3. It's easy to focus and exceptionally well made. I highly recommend it.

As a nature photographer, this lens is a 'must have' for my bag. It is fairly-light (360g), it is extremely sharp, and (best of all) you can buy a Nikon BR-2A adapter, flip the lens around, and use it for macro photography (1.1x), , reversed, giving you essentially 2 lenses for the price of one.

I am using this Nikon 50mm f1.2 on my Nikon D750 and the results are just amazing. The quality of the optics, the bokeh quality, the low light performance and the overall quality are really pleasing.

The best 50mm lens ever built period. The sharpest at f2.8 even at 1.4! After testing the canon 1.2 and even the Zeiss milvus 50mm f1.4, the Nikon 50mm 1.2 is by far the most valuable in term of performance and image quality. Very highly recommended!

I recently purchased a Nikkor 50mm 1.2 AI-S used and feel that it is an interesting lens. I am not as fast at manual focus as I was years ago and that makes the lens a little less useful when shooting moving subjects, but that is probably true of any manual lens.
