Re: Nikon 50mm f1.2 user experiences?

Thank you all for the answers. I should have clarified that I would be using it on D600 and also on my OMD-EM5, because why not.

The practical application for it would be enviromental porrtraits, and propably stopped down to f4-f8. But the wide open performance interests me, why would anyone buy this if they werent using it wide open?

Anyway, I'm glad to hear it's a sharp cookie. And thank you for the image samples and user experiences. It's always a diffrent story to hear things from someone actually using the lens, then to read someones opinion who had it on test drive for 2 days.

Judging the tree branch here only, it does seem a well behaved lens wide open. I mean, you can't expect it to be void of a little softness, and I don't care about that. Not a pixel peeper. Might as well get it now, since my store has it second hand for 449 euros with a guarantee.

Thank you all for the friendly answers.
