I had the NIkon 50mm f1.2 ais lens in the past and it has so much character, beautifully built and smooth as butter auto focus ring. I used it on my d810 and if you hit the focus while holding the aperture at 2.0 or even wider the image will be really good.

Probably best focus when using the live view and a tripod or solid base.


Thanks Larry, i think it would be easier to focus on Nikon F3's split screen focusing. can't wait to get a hold of this lens.. i also want to try it out on my D810 for once.

Yes, not a problem on most slr's, more difficult on dslr's.  I loved manual focus in the 90's on my f100.
