I love MF lenses, but i rage that i dont have split prism on my d700.
I was wondering what y'alls opinion was on the 50mm f/1.2!? I want to scoop one up for my FM2.
It has been such a long time since I shot with a Nikkormat and manual focus lenses, that I forget about the experience of relying on a split prism viewfinder to gain focus. This time around I've relied on the focus confirmation system provided by the D700. It has proved quite effective, though I don't often shoot wide open with the 50 f/1.2. That might be a bit of a crap shoot. Is the split prism available for the D700?
With regard to that lens, it is surely one of my favorites and as I note above, I used it extensively during a recent trip but only took a couple of shots wide open. Here are two, first of a friend after dinner, the second a 100% crop of an empty plate with focus on the tines of the fork. It was rather mediocre Chinese food, but the company was great!
