Re: Query: Nikkor 50mm f1.2 Ai-S

I like it. I use it for it's special f1.2 look. There is flare and glare and all that stuff, but when properly focused it's actually pretty sharp underneath even at f1.2.

I've learnt to get pretty good focus using live view on my D750 and assigning zoom to OK button. No problem getting keepers hand held portrait shoots. It takes a bit of concentrating and lot's of shots, but it's worth it.

For focusing through viewfinder it has to be stopped down to atleast f2.8 for any acceptable results.
