Nikon 50mm f1.2 focus issues
Oct 10, 2011

I have a Nikon 50mm f1.2 Ai-s lens, and I've been shooting it with my Nikon D700 for a while. I heard many commands that this lens is very hard to focus on DSLR's. My experience is the total opposite. I can nail the focus at f1.2 with ease; I simply look at the green dot. However, the problem started when I started shooting film on my Nikon F3hp bodies. I have yet to be able to nail the focus at f1.2 using my F3's with the split focus screens. I wasted 2 rolls of film and the results were not good at f1.2. Anyone out there have any similar experiences or suggestions?
