Buying a Nikon doesn't make you a photographer. It makes you a Nikon owner.
First shot from the Mighty NIKKOR 50mm f/1.2
Now thats what I like, sturdy, adds a bit more weight! Pin sharp and superb Bokeh rendition. Too bad there is no auto focus and aperture control is manual (grr). disinclined to do manual stuff? Liking it though.
