The "Noct" 58mm f/1.2 AIS, shot at f/1.2 (samples)
Mar 19, 2010

The FedEx man arrived with this lens (AIS version) at noon today .

I got it from Adorama. I was hesitating buying an expensive used lens such as this, but I spoke to Helen Oster there, who put me in touch with Joel Meisels in the used dept. He was kind enough to answer all my questions and he actually forwarded me photos of it. All in all, a great experience.

I bought this lens for one purpose, and one purpose only: to shoot wide open. This, and the fact that I will be shooting with it 95% of the time meant I was really counting on the "Noct" to perform.

For those interested, here are 11 photos, all taken today, all wide open at f/1.2. The camera used is a D3S (I know, I'm using a manual focus lens as my main lens in a camera renown for it's auto-focus accuracy... )

The photos follow in the next posting (next line in this thread). Thanks for your interest in reading this far.
