I have now been shooting street stuff with my newly acquired Noct-Nikkor and honestly, the NN has better handling than (my) Rokkor, but for wide open sharpness and ability to snap into focus in a clear way - the Rokkor wins. Extremely unscientific-on-the-street-observation over a 48hr period.


IMO, for the price, you can't beat Zuiko 50, Pentax 50, or Rokkor 58 in the f/1.2 department. If you are in a budget, there's no point buying a lens like Zeiss Yahre just because.
My last grand were spent on seven or eight Zuikos. My next grand will pay a 5D.
But that's just me

first one from Rokkor 58 1.2 f-mount. Second from Yashinon 55 1.2--both 1.2 of course

Don't forget we are talking about f1 and faster lenses too, though they tend to be in category B, with the exception of perhaps the Canon 50mm for TV and the old Canon rangefinder system.

This seems to be changing as the 0.95 has risen significantly in price - recently the RF version is bringing up to $2000 and a couple hundred more if converted to M-Mount. With the recent Noctilux price drops it is becoming as little as $1500 difference...

@0.95..

Looks good. Does the D700 have a strong AA filter on it. There is a smoothness to the images that doesn't look like it comes from the lens.

I shoot JPG, so possibly that might have something to do with it. I don't know if it is the AA filter or what.

The Noct-Nikkor is still my favorite of the SLR lenses. It is just so smooth, yet sharp.

Yeah, for sure. It is interesting how this lens behaves. I've not seen anything like it and it's spectacular. One more...

Thought I'd share a few more from the past couple of weeks. as always Sony a900 + Minolta 58/1.2. Not necessarily all bokeh, but streetscape sharpness shots...
