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

Thank you, I'm glad you liked them, :). I just went through all the pictures I've taken with this lens, and even if many of them were taken very early on in my "photographic career", they have not degenerated as much as other pictures taken with other lenses. I think it's partly because this lens, and manual as a whole, forces one to slow down and really think about what you're shooting, being involved in a different way than when you just snap away using AF. I remember the photos better, they mean more to me in a way, as if I have poured a piece of myself into them in the process as I slowly, carefully searched for the perfect focus, the perfect exposure...
Oh darn it, I need to buy my lens back!
