Re: Nikon 50mm f1.2 user experiences?

Using any lens at an f1.2 or even an f1.4 will have almost no dof, best to use at say an f2.0 or smaller f stop.  The focal length for portraits is a little short on an ff camera, but not bad on a cropped sensor.  It is one beautiful lens, beautifully constructed, smooth as silk focus ring and is small, I got it just for looks ha ha!!!!  No actually it is an excellent lens optically.  Just darn fun to use.
