Nikon’s ultra-high-speed NIKKOR 50mm f/1.2 normal lens offers more possibilities in low-light photography. It also provides very shallow depth images when used at f/1.2. This lens is notably superior to the previous 55mm f/1.2 design and produces a better result at f/1.2.

This lens is built to Nikon’s classic all-metal manual focus standards offering smooth focusing and rugged construction. This is the fastest lens currently in Nikon’s line-up.

Nikon 50mm f/1.2 Ai-s review by KenRockwell.com

The 50mm f/1.2 works better than I had expected. It’s super sharp, and distortion is as good or better than the common 50mm f/1.4!

Nikon cautions in the owners manual that if you want good resolution or close-up performance to use the 55mm f/2.8 AI-s Micro instead, however I find this 50mm f/1.2 really good.
