The 50mm F1.2 works great with the D3X and will produce super sharp images if properly focused. Go to the D3X "Menu" to " Set Up Menu" to "Non-CPU lens data" There you can select a lens# and enter the lens information. Once you do this the camera/lens will work like a manual focusing aperture priority camera. All lens information will come up in the camera's LCD display such as the F-stop you manually select. The SB-900 flash also recognizes the lens data and will zoom for the 50mm. According to David Busch's book on the D3S/D3X you won't get the full 3D color matrix metering II but will get a basic Color matrix metering. You can also select center weight or spot metering as well. The focus assist arrows and dot in the view finder also work to help you manually fine tune the focus. This is true for all the older Ai Nikon lens. you can program 9 non CPU lens this way. I have my AiS 105 Micro Nikkor set up on the D3X

It will give you full matrix metering in aperture and manual modes so long as you enter the non-CPU lense data. MENU > SETUP MENU (wrench icon) > NON-CPU LENS DATA > 50 F1.2. If you do not enter this data it will give you spot meter only. Additionally after you enter the data, it will show up in you EXIF information.

Very nice bokeh especially on F 2.

the aperatures will show up in the viewfinder and screens on the D3X once you set up the lens in the menu; very simple to do. The SB-900 flash will also recognize all lens data - if the lens is set up on the camera. The spot, center and matrix metering exposure options also will work.

on d7000, d300 and up it will tell the camera its aperture only if you set it up in your non-cpu lens configuration, and there's a special sliding ring around your bayonet thats sole function is to tell the camera how much the aperture ring is rotated. that's how. :)

Yes, the 50mm f1.2 is a manual focus lens which will fit any Nikon camera made after 1959. Though to be honest the 1.4 or 1.8G are just as good.

With the (hopefully) soon to be released FT1 lens mount adapter for the Nikon 1 v1 camera, will the Nikkor 50mm f/1.2 work? Especially given the manual focus aspects of this lens? Also, please comment on the 2.7 lens convert aspects and impact on this lens.

Question

Why does my NIKKOR 50mm f/1.2 Lens have a maximum f-stop of f1.4 on my Nikon D200?

I just purchased an NIKKOR 50mm f/1.2 manual focus lens to use with my D200. With this lens I use the M-manual and A-apeture priority modes. When reading the setting data inside the view finder the largest f-stop achieved is f1.4. Why? Will this lens open to an f-stop of 1.2 when used on my D200 Digital SLR?

The NIKKOR 50mm f/1.2 Lens (product 1435) is compatible with the D7100 however, it is a manual focus lens so it will not autofocus on the D7100 or any other camera body.

All digital cameras are sensitive to both UV and IR radiation but since capturing these spectral ranges can lower the image quality of visible light images, they are filtered out in the camera.
However, many of our cameras can still be used for this type of shooting. For IR shooting you can use an "87c" type filter to prevent the exposure of any visible light and just expose IR. While we can't offer any support for this type of shooting there are many third-party web sites which discuss in-depth IR/UV shooting.
