One of my friends let me borrow his Nikkor 50/1.2 lens and I was playing around with it on my parents' D80. After messing around for a bit at 1.2, I have to say this lens isn't as much fun as I thought it would be. I found it hard to get good focus and sharpness. Is the point of buying this lens to shoot at 1.2, or is it sharper than other 50mm lenses at their respective apertures? The depth of field at 1.2 seems to be around 1/2" or so. 1.2 obviously gives a great edge to low light photography, but I imagine it would be tough to focus in such low light and your depth of field would be so narrow. The bokeh is beautiful tho, but seems to be very similar to my Nikkor 50/1.4 - I have an older version that was AI'd and I did a few side-by-side shots of the 50/1.2 and 50/1.4. Maybe the D80 wasn't the best camera to use this lens on, but things looked sharp and in focus thru the viewfinder - and the green focusing dot was solid - but when I put them on my computer, they didn't look quite as good. Anyways, the D80 was the only camera I could see instant results with. I got some better results with my friend's D300, but even then it was pretty tough. Stopped down tho, the 50/1.2 looks great, even with the D80. Would have an autofocus 1.2 lens make things any easier, like the Canon 50/1.2 or 85/1.2? I'll post a few of my results below, just for fun. The first two were taken on a D300 and the rest on a D80.
