Hey all, have a question for you. I have accumulated quite a number of lenses, all with strengths and weaknesses, and I think I need to cull the flock a bit. What I am looking to do is get a faster 50 than I currently have. I would love to get a 1.2 in either the 50 or 55 flavor. I would essentially use it to replace my current line up of 50's (except my 55/3.5 macro). What would you suggest? I don't want to break the bank on cost and I really do love the look/feel of the older glass with the scalloped rings. I also like how the older glass renders (my 28/3.5 and 35/2.8 are the old style and love how they render, same with my second gen 55/3.5 and my Nikkor-Q 135). I know the AIS are beautiful, but command the price to go with it... Opinions please.
Great work the last few pages. Ronny, you are turning into the "bug-in-flight" (BIF) master! Bert, you could give a clinic on how to shoot hummingbirds. I have not seen a shot that I didn't love. Phillippe, great work from the Alps. Ray, always love your work and the tripod shots are amazing... I know I am forgetting some, but stellar work all around.
I love that we have some film shooters here too. Payday next week I hope to pick up a roll of Ilford HP5 to put through Harold (my Nikkormat). I need to replace the foams, but they aren't completely degraded yet so I might be able to expose a few rolls.
