By Willie Sanford on December 12, 2011
*Not heavy or bulky at all--I found it to be lighter than most any lens yet the build quality is robust--and the wide grip focus ring allows a rapport 'gliding with preciseness'-- meaning great levels of subtle adjustments.

*At f2 it's truly sharp-you read of those saying this lens and that lens is sharp wide open--only to find this is BS--well f2 isn't wide open but it's so sharp that didn't want it any sharper (without any post processing I could see the faint stitch patterns in a baseball cap--and I don't mean the main stitch threads--I mean within the smooth surface of the cotton--and 2.8 was sharper than that even--in fact sharper than I thought lenses could get and yet a faint creaminess was still there!)

*Since at f2 you have real world-perfectly usable sharpness (this is where I keep the lens set for 90 percent of my work) you are no longer in the basement of 2.8 and below. All of which means f2 on this lens sends the world of available light photography through the roof.

*Its bokeh is beautiful stuff and tends to define in a Monet-like way rather than other worlds of surrealistic soft cotton. But there is an almond shaped disc effect it does to background lights that is famous when used at 1.2...I have as of yet to replicate this with accuracy. But it has happened. Flickr will show you what I mean.

*I found the colors to be more than just accurate--they were spot on. (Using Nikon D3)In fact, I am still kind of stunned at the color fidelity.

*IQ --Okay the only fair thing to compare it to is the legendary Nikkor 85 1.4---I have the AIS (MF only)and the 85 is creamier with more dynamic range--meaning the 50mm is rendered just a bit more clinical in comparison. Basically the 85mm gives you a bit more romance--the 50mm tells you like it is.

The lens is great. Beautifully designed and put together. This lens belongs firmly in the "they don't build them like this anymore" category, except that apparently at Nikon they still do. It has quality written all over it.

Focus: This is a manual focus lens and the focus mechanism feels simply great. Very smooth yet not too light. All in all easy to use but as with all manual focusing, it takes practice. In low light focusing becomes a lot more difficult which is ironic given the ridiculously wide aperture of the lens.

Image quality: At f1.2 the lens is soft and unforgiving. That's not to say you can't take great images with it. The combination of 50mm focal length and super wide aperture make for great effects in portraits. The bokeh IMO is quite pleasant. At f2.0 the lens becomes sharp, very sharp.

Who is this for: If you have to ask, you probably don't need this. Nikon's 1.8/50mm is a great lens at much lower cost AND has auto-focus. This lens on the other hand, is for enthusiasts and collectors (and hobbyists for whom cost isn't a big issue). You get a great super fast lens (at a price) and for better or worse you're stuck with manual focus.

Note: I use this on a D800 and I had to create a lens profile on the camera order for the exif data to be stored correctly.

If you are looking for that one incredibly special lens for your D700/D800, look no further. If you are even considering purchasing this lens, there is nothing really to think about. This lens is it, it's a no-braner, it's the one you will not regret buying. As a matter of fact, just add it to your cart now while you still can. The Nikon 50mm F/1.2 AIS lens is a solid hunk of beautiful glass that will give you pictures that you will not believe you had created yourself. If you are patient, and are willing to take your time in composing your shot, this lens will reward you handsomely. At F/1.2, you will be able to create dreamy photos with bokeh that other lenses can only dream of. You'll be able to melt away your background easier than butter in a hot frying pan. At F/2 and above, you will be able to capture incredible detail that will shock and pleasantly surprise you.

I would highly recommend getting the DK-17M magnifying eyepiece with this lens for your D700/D800 to make manual focusing even easier. Trust me, you will thank me for it.

I shoot a lot of night-street and interior event photography and love this lens for these situations in many ways. But, there are a few things about this lens that I wish I'd considered more carefully before purchasing:

* Truncated bokeh - On the Nikon FE, Canon 7D, and Canon 5D Mk II, specular bokeh on the top and right portions of an image can be "chopped" in half. This is due to the small size of these cameras' light boxes (the chamber between the lens and the film frame). The Nikkor 50mm 1.4 AiS lens does not have this problem (smaller circles of confusion wide open). And, you may not have this problem with your particular camera body.

* Non-circular bokeh, even at f/1.4 - from 1.4 to 2.0, there's a distracting "ban-saw blade" outline with specular bokeh (christmas lights, etc.) From 2.4 to 16, the bokeh are clearly polygonal (nonagonal) and not circular, again for specular bokeh only.

* "Condom-ring" bokeh -- almost every lens that is neutrally corrected for circular aberration seems to have this "bright-edged" look with specular background lights, even expensive aspherical designs like the Canon EF 50mm & 85mm 1.2 L's. The only exceptions I've found so far are the Sigma 50mm 1.4, the Nikkor 50mm 1.8 G, the Nikkor 105mm f/2.0D AF DC and, surprisingly, the bargain-basement Rokinon/Samyang 85mm 1.4. These lenses UNDER-correct for circular aberration in distal out-of-focus areas, creating creamy and "un-jittery" backgrounds (not just for specular highlights but also with straight-line elements like picket fences and buildings)

* 19 min focus distance - I didn't think that the more common 16" min focus distance of the Nikkor 50mm 1.
