Treat this lens like an artistic tool - the fun (and often maddening challenge) is at f1.2 & 1.4. Apply its razor thin DOF to various subjects and enjoy.

For general purpose (and auto focus) I use the new 50 1.8 G. A fine street & landscape lens when stopped down to 4.5. Also a very good 'stitching' lens.

Ever since I recently (where have I been) discovered Nikon makes a MF 50mm f1.2 lens, I've been toying with the idea of getting it. I can't find any good reviews, and I'm wondering if folks can point me to one or better yet, have personal experience with it. How does it compare with the 1.4G optically?
