It’s raining again | The Nikkor-NOCT 58/1.2.

The rain has returned after a long absence, so I thought I’d post a second image today, more à propos of the mood.

(please click on the image to view)

This shot was taken last year with the Nikkor-NOCT 58/1.2 (on a Nikon D40 body).

The Nikkor-NOCT 58/1.2 is a remarkable lens that, unfortunately, is no longer made.  I really should write a piece about it, but there is plenty of technical information available on the web about this lens.  Have a look here and here.

Over the next little while, I’ll be posting some of my favourite shots I’ve taken with this lens.  The images do a better job of telling the story of the NOCT anyway, as compared to technical discussions.

    I look forward to seeing your postings. As you know I am crazy about the images you produced with this lens, and having recently acquired one, I am hoping to come to grips with it. I did lend it to a pro photographer to user for a few days. He liked it a lot but really struggled to shoot it faster than f2.0 (on a D3S). I am hoping to do better than that 🙂
