Nikkor 50mm f 1.2 performance f1.2-8.0

Jovan Ivkovic , Jan 20, 2006; 03:20 a.m.

A long time a go I do some large scale testing of nikkor 50's, but 2 cd of material was newer presented to the public.
Some time ago Robert Lai draw some short conclusions from material that I send him (and take one 50/1.2 after that).
But lot of new comers newer hade a chance to see that lens in practise and was subjected to the subjectivenes of lens owners.
So I deside to shere my test semples so that you can draw your own decision...
First to say that 50/1.2 was intent to be cheaper substitute for ultra expensive Noct-nikkor 58mm/1.2, but don't be disappointed about that.
I'll show you how it perform from f1.2 to the f8 and I'll take 35-70 AF/2.8 for the comparation.
