Pros: TA yield, mechanics, character, Bokeh

Cons: TA focus, coma, backlit

Opinion: If I were to venture the classic cliché comparison, I'd say it's a thoroughbred stallion. Difficult to "mount", nervous and unpredictable (especially because on the D750 -but I read that it is a general problem- what you see in the crosshairs at f/1.2 is NOT what you will see in the photo). But if with practice and perseverance you can tame it, then a world opens up. I use it almost exclusively at 1.2 (let's make one thing clear: if one invests 350-450 euros for a fifty, it does it for that quid in more than a 1.8 or a 1.4 do not give you), and after the various 85mm (at least three), the 105 f/2.5 and the 135 f/2 , I finally found my portrait lens. Eye (!) to the eye: only one can be in focus, and you still have to choose between the iris and the eyelashes: at f/1.2 you can't have both in focus. For the rest, closing becomes very engraved (Although it is not true - as some say - that is the fifty sharper than the Nikon from 2.8 and up, indeed), but the chromatic aberrations due to the extreme slathery of the lenses are felt (and see, above all). I wouldn't use it for astrophotography...

Pros: Solidity, general construction, mechanics, character

Cons: Not easy to open focus, barrel distortion

Opinion: A great lens. Mechanically and optically. Impeccable construction and unmatched ring movements. Very soft and ultra-calibrated. A Swiss watch. Optically I find it remarkable, especially from F4 to f 5.6 where from the best of itself. But those who buy such optics are obviously attracted to that F 1.2 that promises fireworks. Well, the MAF is stuff from surgeons but the bokeh gives off dream images. Not simple, requires calm and attention and the results are unique in their kind. Fuzzy creamy, buttery... almost liquid. A marvel. Obviously for the sharpness will have to move to the 2... 2.8 and as I said before at F4 is exceptional. Lens with a very recognizable character, peculiar, not like most of today's very performing but little diversified and rather anonymous. The choice I think should be made keeping in mind this aspect and not just thinking about the lack of autofocus. Dense colors, Pastosi, natural images. It is certainly a dip in the vintage, but also a return to images in which you perceive a less "digital" aspect, less pushed and gritty but also less artifact. The problem is that once you try the temptation is to no longer resort to optics with too many controls and stabilizations. A real gem. Too bad for some pretty obvious barrel distortion and some aberration around the corner... but the perfect optics doesn't exist. To try at least once (and then to keep!)

Pros: Image Quality, Construction, Design, Construction

Cons: Irreplaceable ... an Af remake would be spectacular ...

Opinion: FANTASTIC GOAL! F1.2 pulls out of the pictures of fairy tale, a wonderful bokeh that the current G series dreams of. Already from f2 the sharpness is excellent, though not reaching the clarity of 50 1.8 G, which is a blade (these are two goals that can coexist in a kit). Flare and aberrations fairly present but manageable. Built entirely in metal on Nikon Df is a work of art ... Not to be underestimated that despite the 26 years of production (1979-2015) and the presence of new copies on the market is a circular check ... La maf Manual has a very special ring, but especially open diaphragms, perhaps with the confirmation point, the live view, or a nice FX viewfinder, you have to be careful. In conclusion the best 50mm for Nikon ... a piece of timeless story ...

Pros: Bokeh, wonderful three-dimensional to TA

Cons: Sharpness up to f / 2.8

Opinion: A wonderful optics both on FF and DX that gives, all opening, a wonderful blur and a dreamlike tridimensionality. A perfect lens for printers, less for pixel count patients; On dx l optics for portrait excellence. From f / 2.8 top sharpness for each sensor in the center, soft to the edges up to f / 4 but those looking for such a lens look for the plus that no coating can give. Precise focusing with the rangefinder. For connoisseurs

Pros: Metal, TA and bokeh dreamlike, weight.

Cons: A little difficult at TA

Opinion: Taken used and very happy owner this magical lens. A dream come true. Fantastic and very heavy vintage optics, I use it for weddings on Nikon D610 and blur it at TA to a I do not know that dream/fairy. It is an optic that in my opinion is to be used only at full opening for its particular Bokeh. Every photo has something unique, magical and when you use it you feel like a photographer from other times.
