5D3 + Nikkor 50mm f1.2 AIS, anyone?

I'd be very pleased to hear from anyone who's had success with the combo above - it'd be great to see pictures, but I'd be particularly grateful for any recommendations for adapters, what (if any) metering functionality I should expect; what focussing screen/method works best etc. Is it actually practically possible to focus manually -and precisely- at f1.2, or do you just fire off a lot of frames and hope that one will show the plane of focus in a happy position? Any tips at all would be appreciated!

Thanks,

Al
