testing my glass on my new to me D5

I took possession of a lightly used D5 yesterday. Today I did some functionality and IQ tests (for my style of shooting) with many of my existing lenses. Here is a summary, which really should not surprise anyone.

My big surprises were the 28mm nikon and particularly the 60mm nikon. I expected such great performance from the longer lenses, the 70-200 zoom and the sigmas, but the 60 was really a nice rediscovery. The old 50mm 1.2 just does not hold up to a modern sensor -- though I could do 'artistic' stuff with it -- maybe.

This was a fun way to dive into many of my old lenses. I have not yet tested the  venerable 200mm f4 micro-nikkor, and several other seldom used lenses.
