Re: Nikkor Ai-s 50mm f/1.2 lens

Thank you for postong your images, I enjoyed all of them and love to see this lens mentioned on this forum.

The 50 is the one lens I regret selling... I bought mine new some years back, had it basically glued to my D90 for a couple of years, but when I went FX in 2010 and tasted the style of the new AF-S lenses, the 50 was left in the drawer. Sadly so, as now I'd love to play with it again...

I really loved its rendering, its swirling, organic bokeh at f1.2, and the incredible sharpness even at f1.2 when you really nailed focus.

It was the lens that made me fall in love with photography, see the world in a new, less sterile, way and as I roamed the fields in complete manual mode, I felt complete freedom. How's that for a lament, ;).
