Nikkor 50mm f/1.2 AI-S Lens

Nikon Nikkor 50mm f/1.2 AI-S manual focus lens.I can’t help but share my excitement over my newest photographic acquisition — Nikon Nikkor 50mm f/1.2 AI-S manual focus lens. I’ve been reading and looking at pictures of this lens for months now, drooling all over my keyboard.

Box from 50mm f/1.2 lens.On Friday, while looking at it yet again on B&H site, I impulse-bought it. It just couldn’t be helped any longer. It was delivered by UPS today to my office. And I’m holding it in my hands and still drooling. It is so nice.

Shot of a keyboard taken at f/1.2. RAW to JPEG conversion done in Photoshop. Straight out of the camera shot otherwise with no post-processing of any kind.Nikon has been making this lens in this exact form since 1981. It can still be bought brand new today. I’ll most probably end up making a more detailed post about it all in the coming days. Today I’m just posting 3 photographs. The last one is made with this lens at f/1.2. Look at that DOF.
