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.

Nikon D300, NIKKOR 50mm f/1.2, Aperture f/1.2, ISO 200, WB Incandescent Light
Adobe Photoshop CS3 for processing.

    Wow, didn't realize there was a 50mm 1.2! I love my 50mm 1.4. I'll have to check out the results of what you've done with this lens in your stream.
