Z6 + Nikon 50mm 1.2
11

Hi everyone,

I received yesterday a brand new Nikon 50mm 1.2 and a dumb adapter. Took it out today in NYC on my Z6 to test drive it. I was really scared that I paid more than the price of an S50mm 1.8 and that I would end up regretting my purchase. I have to admit that getting used to the extremely shallow DOF at 1.2 was challenging, still have a lot to get used to, however, I am so happy I opted for this lens, while I am sure that optically it’s not anywhere near the new Z mount 50mm, but the fun factor and the artistic factor is way up there. There’s something special about an old tank like this 50mm, that’s manual focus and that makes you take some time to think about each shot.

here are some quick snap shots of my walk around the neighborhood, any C&C is welcome.
