    Nice picture. Love the 50mm/1.2. Mounted on a D700/D3 it redefines the meaning of available light :biggrin:

    thanks Robert, thanks Tim.
  5. Nice use of light Igor. Show us more of Ukraine. What is that patch of light on the trees in the background?
  6. Great shot Igor, the detail and lighting, even at 1600 is still there. This lens has made life difficult for me, i was set on getting the 35 f1.4 ais up till now. now i dont know.
  7. I love the 50/1.2

    I love the 50/1.2 and to think I was going to sell it...

    Having both the 50/1.2 and 35/1.4 I have left the 50/1.2 unused for a few months. Thanks Igor, you have given me ample reasons to use it again :biggrin:

    Handheld eh?

    With that lens in your hands you don't need the D300, D3, or D700! Nice shootin' Igor!

    Thanks Roy. I'm afraid nobody would be delighted of "more views from Ukraine"...as most post-communist/post Russia-occupied countries , Ukraine is a pityful view these days... I'm trying to pick some nice views but they are very limited :) 
    That patch of light is some store or cafe at the background I think.

    Thanks Shing, I'd advise you to have BOTH lenses in your collection. 35/1.4 has better IQ, though is a bit slower than 50/1.2
