Due to its incredible expense when new and the fact that the vast majority were used by professionals, the 50/1.2 is one of the hardest Nikkors to find in any sort of condition. This is both the best condition 55/1.2 and the first genuine Nikon AI conversion that I have come across in over five years and is one of the best kept Nikkors I have ever seen. I would not bank on ever seeing another, it really is one to grab while you can!

This lens truly defies the passage of the past 47 years, the classic silver and black barrel is similarly excellent, with almost no wear even to the ever prone focus ring due to that lovely scalloped grip. In use, it feels both hefty and tight. The focus and aperture rings move as smoothly as you would hope from a Nikon lens. The lens couples exactly as it should and functions perfectly on my D7000, and will on any Nikon SLR or DSLR that you plan to pair it with. The optic bears the gorgeous golden coating unique to Nikkors of this era which shimmers in the light and looks amazing mounted on any Nikon, but particularly suits the all black aesthetic of a DSLR. Thanks to Nikon’s legendary compatibility plan, this superfast antique lens will fit any current Nikon DSLR, Even the fabulous new Df! I have been testing it on a D7000 with all the modern refinements of Matrix metering and focus confirmation and it has performed every bit as well as it’s reputation leads one to expect. With an adapter, it will be just as capable on either a Canon DSLR, Micro Four thirds, Nikon 1, Sony NEX or Fuji X body even the new full frame Sony A7 and A9. Thanks to the AI conversion, this lens offers the perfect symbiosis of the worlds most sought after optics allied to the supreme modern digital bodies we have access to today. Of course, the 55mm f1.2 is deservedly regarded as the ultimate’Standard’ lens, and with the supreme optics, speed and downright sexy, wafer thin depth of field.
