First quality lens for use in low light situations
There are many reasons why I decided to buy this lens from eBay. I always purchased quality products through eBay even though they were used ones. I consider that it is the best MF 50mm 1.4 lens that is available today. Also it is suitable for my fantastic Fm3a film camera which I could use not only as standard lens but also as medium tele. I have trıed it several times and diccovered that it needs very careful focussing when it is wide open. I will therefore use it with focussing more carefully. It has much better mechanics and high quality material compared to plastic ones manufactured with todays standards. What is more, it is suitable for night photography and it gives the speed that I needed for use in low light situations. I plan to carry it with me at all times in the years to come successfully.Read full review

A PERFECT manual focus lens
I bought this lens because it is the best manual focus 50mm lens still made today. Just look at the review by Ken Rockwell (http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/50mm-f12.htm). The focus ring doesn't feel cheap, too tight, or too loose. It is made like it will be used constantly (and it will). Having 9 aperture blades makes AMAZING sun stars and f/1.2 creates fantastic depth of field. The weight of the lens is somewhat significant but it only means the lens is built out of quality materials and not cheap plastic. The Canon 50mm f/1.2L is basically this lens + autofocus, but costs twice as much. If you're shooting video or simply enjoy manual controls then this lens is perfect and you won't pay for autofocus. I have had absolutely no problems with this lens and just simply can't find anything wrong with it!Read full review

Great Manual Focus Lens
The 50mm 1.2 is a great manual focus lens and is better in low light than I even expected after shooting it on a Nikon D80. I haven't any of the other nikon 50mm, but if you want a lens that you know will perform well in low-light and is sharp at f2, pick up one of these.

Old Nikkor Glass from a 2016 perspective
I'll keep this short. Anyone reading this already knows quite a bit about Nikkor AI - AI-s lenses.
Good: Mine is a well maintained version of this old classic. Smooth movement all around. Coating appears unaffected by time. Some coatings discolor in time. 55mm filter size is inexpensive to acquire.
Bad: Not a NOCT, but very nice. Just slightly soft at f1.2/1.4. Very nice look at f2.0. This is it's best f stop for available light portraits. Sharpest at f5.6 (goes without saying but I did).
Overall...as with most Nikkor AI/AI-s lenses, they are a nice mix of technical accuracy and artsy sweetness. Old Canon and Taukmar are about the same. The Rokkor 58mm f1.2. is better by a tick but isn't usable on Nikon bodies even with an adapter. I am still trying to figure out how to get a Sony sensor into my Sr-T-202 (humor).Read full review
