| p.1 #18 · Nikon 50mm Thoughts? Switching to Nikon from Canon. |
Sounds like the 50mm 1.8G is the way to go. For the 50mm, I'm not really budget conscious considering I use it for most of my work and every Nikon options is much less pricey than the Canon 50Ls.
As for the 50L 1.0, it's not a soft lens, it's no macro, but the copy I have is better than the 50L 1.2 I've owned. There were so few purchased and even fewer in circulation now that I don't feel it received a fair shake.
My time frame is after the d800 comes out so... hopefully they will release the Nikon 50mm 1.2G at the same time, that would probably be ideal. With today's technology, Nikon can probably knock this out of the ball park if they want to. The 200 f2G is spectacular, maybe they can take whatever special sauce they used on that lens and shrink it down to 50mm. Not super impressed with the 50 1.4G in the comparisons vs. Sigma but I have high hopes for a 50 1.2G. The 50 1.2AIS was a great lens and a good starting point for something awesome.
