chambesi: thank you for the link. phantastic photos.

the more I practice with the lens, the more i like it. But it is through its special character not easy to learn and esp reliably get the shots the way you imagine.

Addition to this thread on the New Noct. A recent and enthusiastic review. I enjoyed reading it

https://50lux.com/2018/05/30/the-af-s-nikkor-58mm-f-1-4g-review-a-look-inside-my-photographic-heart/

Beyond the character of this Nikkor, there's broader context to author's argument that "things that we think of as flaws can have unpredictably wondrous effects on the images a lens produces"

Thank you, Frank, and I finally made it over here. Thanks for the invite as well.  8)

Shot these with the Noct 58/1.2 for reference (Natura 1600)  :o :o :o

Despite what mr Sato says about emulating the Nikkor-S 58/1.4 instead of the Noct, he sure made a lens that renders just as unique as the Noct  ::)

Still waiting for a nice deal for the 58/1.4G but that day may not come  :'(

Following up on Richard's posts in 1001 Nights #69 thread, found this link on the Nikkor Lenses facebook page:

thanks for reviving this old thread. it's probably the best repository of the NOCT and the 58/1.4G on the net  :o :o :o

these were taken with the Noct on an F6.

the more I shoot with the NOCT the more I realize how special this thing is. i hope somebody can lend me a 58/1.4G so I can test it on these kinds of situations ::)

No problem, beautiful rendering!

   This is the 58 1.4 fully open on the Z6. AF spot on and window light.

Thanks Frank and no, I haven't try it yet. The "normal" is excellent!
