Re: Nikon 50mm f1.2 user experiences?

Most lenses perform better when stopped-down a bit; the 50mm 1.2 AI-S is no exception. Moreover, I do not always want a razor-thin depth-of-field. Much of my love for this lens is, quite simply, due to its pleasing build quality. The ability to open the aperture in low light, or when I do want extremely shallow DOF, is a bonus. I wish I had owned this lens when my eyes were younger, and could see much more clearly!

This lens seems sharper at f/2 than either my 50mm 1.8D or 50mm 1.4G. This, alone, makes it worth having, for low-light shooting.

I wear a badge and pistol, and, primarily with 7D cameras, with 10-22mm and 100mm Macro L lenses, shoot evidentiary images at night, which incorporates elements of portrait, macro, still life, landscape, architecture, PJ, and occasional action.
