Pros: Beautiful rendering at f/1.2 and super sharp when stopped down to f/2 and beyond
Cons:
None

A beautiful manual focus classic Nikkor. Still in production after all of these years, it's a beautiful lens mechanically. They really do still make them like they used to.

Extremely hard to nail focus when shot at f/1.2 and never really 'sharp' wide open, but that's not the point. This lens renders beautifully and blurs backgrounds into oblivion. This is a creative lens when used as intended. Stop down to f/2.0 or more and images pop into extreme sharpness.

An easy match for the D800 quality wise. Live view makes getting focus right very easy and the focus confirmation lamp is pretty useful when shooting through the viewfinder. I love this lens on the Df, so much so that I've gotten rid of my AF 50's.

Get one new while you can and smell that new MF Nikkor smell right out of the box. Lovely!
