Nikon 50mm f/1.2 AIS Aperture Series, DeChambeau Sidelit Barn

Added to my review of the Nikon 50mm f/1.2 AIS in DAP an aperture series that shows just how nice some older designs can be with a little stopping down:

Aperture Series: DeChambeau Sidelit Barn (Nikon 50mm f/1.2 AIS, Leica M Typ 240)

The Nikon 50/1.2 was previously included as a 3rd lens against two Leica M 50mm optics in Guide to Leica.

The point that keeps getting driven home to me is that it’s all about lenses. This old Nikkor with its manual aperture ring is trivially adapted to just about any camera system with a simple mechanical adapter. It was the M240 here, but could have been Fujifilm X or Sony E-mount, or Micro Four Thirds or Canon EF.
