Images shot at f/1.2 with the Olympus OM-System Zuiko Auto-S 50mm f/1.2, which I had converted to Nikon mount. The 50/1.2 is a very compact lens, and I like its color balance better than the Nikon 50mm f/1.2 AI-S. The Olympus 50/1.2 is also poorly corrected at close range, with very pleasing image rendition; its pleasing rendering quality is one reason I prefer it over lenses like Canon’s 50mm f/1.2L.
Images shown here shot at f/1.2 unless otherwise noted.
