Excellent shots Richard!

Simone, while I wasn't impressed overall with the Z6, handheld night shooting with the 50/1.2 was the one application where it was undeniably awesome! Perfect use.

I've only had it for three days and I have not found anything worth complaining about. I'm curious to know what issues you faced?

Nice results, Richard and Simone.  I particularly like the way that the light fixtures have a real 3-D look to them.

Banding & more P&S style controls (coming from D750).  Don't want to hijack the thread, will make a thread soon.

Indeed ; I have both versions and found them to be impossible to distinguish, except :
- 7 vs. 9 blades (that's not optics anyway)
- a hint of lesser vignetting with the AI (not even sure)

Paco, you already have the Z6 and the FTZ, so just missing out on the 50/1.2. It will be yours in the near future is my prediction for 2020 :)

I don't know what is going on but around here 50/1.2s are popping up everywhere on the used market for very modest prices. Back in 2009ish when I bought mine I had to resort to buying it from abroad (my copy came from Israel and was full of sand/big dust particles which I had to have removed by a technician).
