    You're a lucky man to own such a legacy lens -- I am jealous!

    Thanks Jack. Indeed I am very fortunate.

    Here is a shot of the lighting of a local baseball field.

    Which is where the lens really shines -- it was designed for street shooting at night wide open.

    Nice work, KH.

    Somehow the new 58mm 1.4 does not seem quite as stellar….. pity.

    Thank you. Much appreciated.
    I really like my lens and would love to shoot it alongside the Otus 55/1.4.

    K-H, very nice images of Noct-Nikkor 58. Are all the images posted here with F1.2?

    No, the Exif data are still in the images. I believe I used f/8.
    There is no way this lens wide open could match the new Otus 55/1.4.
    But I like the way it draws.
