Nikon 50mm 1.2

A Day Out with the Nikkor 50mm f/1.2 AIS and Nikon D850 DSLR – by Anil Mistry

This lockdown has resulted in me spending a lot of time wandering around with a camera to stay busy and sane. I’m sure many of you can relate.

When not tearing my hair out with frustration and boredom and general life worries, I’ve generally been walking around 5-18 miles a day with my Nikon D850 and various lenses,  photographing random stuff so that I can bring it home and play around in Lightroom to keep me busy.

It was a week before Christmas back in 2006- I’d had a few pints and was in a panic to buy my wife a Christmas present- something that wasn’t perfume for once. I then remembered that her beloved Olympus OM1 – a beaten up old thing from her art college days- had stopped working, so I rushed to a camera store, and reeking of Guinness and Old Holborn, announced that I wanted to buy the best 35mm SLR they had. Despite their attempts to sell me a digital camera, I insisted on film and came away with a brand new Nikon FM3A with a second hand 28mm f2.8 Series E lens.  In the end she hardly used it, and so it slowly made its way back into my hands (…YES!).
