Nikon 50mm f/1.2 Ai

Specs:

Lens:
50mm

Aperture:
f/1.2 to f/16

Nikon 50mm f/1.2 Ai

Image quality

Still fairly sharp even wide open.
But it got some glow, and noticeable vignetting.
Stop it down to f/2 and most is gone and the lens is just great from here on.

Build quality

Like all Nikkor manual focus AI-s lenses, this is built to the highest mechanical standards of any lens ever made.


Conclusion

This is pretty small and lightweight for a f/1,2.
It still uses a Nikon standard 52mm filter which is a big plus.
Picture quality is great through all aperture.
Got a glow wide open which I like in most cases.

Thumbs up:
Image quality
52mm filter
Great bokeh

Thumbs down:
Glow wide open if one don't like that.
