Re: Nikon 50mm f1.2 user experiences?

I'm considering purchasing this fine lens,


but was wondering if you good folks have any experiences on using it for portraits wide open?

The Lens is useless wide open for sharp Portraits, if You want a soft Focus around F/1.2-F/1.4 buy this Lens.
The Lens is OK at F/2 on a APS-C Sensor.

I've red it's semi-useless because of the lack of contrast at 1.2,

Yepp, that can i Confirm.
When You reduce the Resolution to 1/3 from the Original and put alot sharping, the Result is fair.

but would like to stand corrected. Any samples or such?

Here some from my Sold NIKKOR AI:

Horrible user experiences?

Just buy it, You don't lose much Money when You Sold this Lens again...
