How are you, readers? I have not updated my blog for weeks and I can see that people are checking my site on the weekends looking for updates. The past few weeks were terrible. I got sick and the rest of the family got ill as well including our precious baby. I am so busy at work and having an idiot as a team mate doesn’t make things easier so I am left with no time to update this blog and stress levels are very high. Don’t worry, I will make it up to you because we are going to teardown a very special lens this time.
We are going to feature a legend in this blog post. A lens so steeped in hearsay and fantasy that it’s reputation preceded it. The fact that this lens is rare and out of production is also contributing to the hype. And as a Nikon tinkerbug, this lens ranks very high on my list. It is like hunting down and killing Moby Dick and this lens is no other than the now-legendary Noct-Nikkor 58mm f/1.2 Ai-S!
This lens when coupled with a camera that has a Nikon D4 sensor will enable you to shoot in really dim situations like a candle-lit room with ease. The Noct is designed to be used in the dark or night photography. One of it’s selling points is how it corrects points of light found on the corners of the frame. Usually, large aperture lenses will distort these points of light when shot wide-open but the Noct is corrected to help keep the shape of the lights and prevent these from smearing. It’s not perfect, but it is much better than many lenses for this.
