Great Lens

Bob, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: After purchasing the Nikkor 50mm f/1.2 AIS my Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 AIS takes a back seat. Will I sell my f/1.4? NO ... they both excel in low-light and shallow depth of field 'bokeh'.
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

A vintage lens of impeccable quality.

  • Excerpt: When I purchased my Nikon DF, I began looking for lenses that fit the retro style and high quality of the camera. I began my life in photography in the 1940's with an Exacta SLR, followed by a series of pentaxes and Nikons. I have always enjoyed being in control of the camera, rather than the camera controlling me, and the manual feel and operation of the DF seemed to fit my style. The D4 sensor with incredible high ISO performance added to the excitement.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

The perfect lens for the serious traditional photographer

James E. Maynard, Amazon
23 May 2014
  • Summary: I have been a serious amateur photographer for over 60 years, beginning in the late 1940's with an Exacta SLR, then progressing through Pentax and Nikon. I have always loved the feel and operation of the the well built SLR with all mechanical controls easily at hand and the feeling that I, rather than the camera, am in total control.

Sharp wide open on Sony A7

E'kaloa, B&H Photo
8 March 2014
  • Excerpt: This lens is light weight. Sharp on a Sony Alpha a7 wide open with an artistic light touch of vignetting that can easily be fixed in lightroom if u dont like it. Narrower apertures and it gets tac sharp. Color contrast is good. However, light color aberations n purple fringing is evident at f/1.2 but only obvious when against a bright backdrop. I highly HIGHLY recommend this epic lens.

My Go-To Lens

Porter, B&H Photo
26 February 2014
  • Excerpt: This lens is absolutely perfect. It forces beginers to learn how to set their camera for a good photo. The Focus ring rolls oh so smoothly back and fourth. If you've never owned a manual focusing lens before you will greatly appreciate this.
  • Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Awesome Lens

Andrew, Nikon
21 February 2014
  • Summary: This lens is awesome. I fell in love with it within the first 5 minutes of using it. Paper thin depth of field at 1.2 and super sharp. The bokeh is incredible. Great for video too. Very cinematic looking, especially when racking focus. This is absolutely my favorite lens so far.

Amazing lens for a Df.

Jack R, B&H Photo
28 January 2014
  • Excerpt: This lens is a beautiful example of old, solid Nikon manufacturing. It is the sharpest 50mm I own (including the 50mm f1.4G)and is just magic to shoot wide open. And it is just the perfect lens for the Nikon Df!
  • Pros: Durable, Rugged, Strong Construction
