  • Great review man! Good information, videos are a mega plus, and the bokeh vid was really impressive. If only I had a D3s to mount this too….

  • Rad review Bro, I am definitely investing in this lens early next year.

    Thanks for the review man, wanting to pick up one of these to use with my NEX 7 when it comes in. I hope Nikon continues to produce these for a while longer.

  • Great review Sam. So are you selling yours? (Lemme know 😉 Can’t wait to see the Noct review.

    Hi folks,

    This lens is a jewel! No doubt about it. If you ever find one, do not hesitate a single moment to by it. You will have a relationship with it. As soon as it is in your hands, you feel the difference. Play with it – you will have great results.

    So, now I am hungry to get my gear out (also watch an you tube: “That nikon guy, Matt Granger” / Nikkor 50mm 1.2, he loves it, too)!

    Have a nice day,

  • What a material of un-ambiguity and preserveness of valuable know-how concerning unexpected emotions.

  • This page definitely has all the information and facts I wanted about this subject
    and didn’t know who to ask.

  • I absolutely love your blog and find a lot of your post’s to
    be exactly I’m looking for. Would you offer guest writers to write content for you?
    I wouldn’t mind writing a post or elaborating on some of the subjects you write related to here.

    Again, awesome weblog!

  • Hey Sam,

    Did you have an issue with the F-Stop displaying on your camera?
    I have a Nikon D3s and it shows 1.4 when I have the ring set at 1.2 but as i turn it
    it picks up everything after 1.4.
