Hold on, Matt. Don't you know you can't use any lenses besides the M-Hexanons on that Hexar RF body? They just won't work right! Grinning. It sure is a good thing that some of us can't read!

It's a great portrait lens. Does the shade help much in backlight?

I bought a cheap 43mm lens hood from eBay. It was also mentioned on this page http://www.rangefinderforum.com/foru...t=34264&page=5 .

If the backlight comes directly from behind the subject, shade doesn't help much as you can see in this photo http://www.flickr.com/photos/jsuominen/333073112/ . But that was an extreme example and I don't shoot normally that way, if I can move the subject or my own position...

The lens gets into trouble when you're shooting backlit with the sun out of the frame. Then it can produce circles and internal lens reflections. In gentler backlighting, it produces wonderful results.

Here's a shot from last weekend.

I like these portrait shots in this thread taken with the Nikkor-S. I guess its "stretched" design (for a Sonnar type) and age at least benefit from a tight hood in most light situations. (as with my RF Canon 1.5/50)

Let's see how the prices of the genuine hoods are, and then decide if the handling advantage is worth it.

I have a Zeiss Sonnar 1.5, on which the Nikkor is based. It's much worse at handling backlight and sun-out-of-the-frame shots -- the coatings aren't as effective, so you get magnificent superimposed images of the aperture blades which, at some f/stops, are shaped like a circular saw.

If you avoid point light sources or bright points of daylight through foliage, this lens is marvelous wide open.

Jeffery Smith in New Orleans may have more old 50mm lenses Frank S. I know, hard to imagine. Anyway, Jeffery recently purchased a Nikkor 50/1.4 lens. His early reaction: "This may be the sharpest old 50mm lens".

Dark? I see something light and sharp which would be much more fun to "grab" than a M5 with a nikkor
Good shot Venchka.

Yes, "Nippon glow" or "Nikkor glow" sounds better to me. Here are two partial crops from the original images, which I have posted earlier. The glow is there, too.

Here is a new b&w portrait with my vintage Nikon gear:
Nikon S2 + Nikkor-S.C 5cm f/1.4 at f/2.8, 1/60s.
Fuji Neopan 400ASA film developed in Agfa Rodinal (1+50, 20C, 8½ min).
Scanned with Nikon Super CoolScan 4000 ED.
---
Two small details from a 1840 x 2800 pixels original photo.
They show that my focusing was maybe a bit off, because my wife's eyes and
glasses are not 100% sharp, but her blouse fabric is.

Cool You've seen the good...

...now here is the Bad and the Ugly. Strong light source out of the field of view. I thought far enough out of the field to avoid flare. Obviously not far enough. The same semicircle appears in both photos.

Thanks, Wayne. You've really gotta watch out shooting into light with this lens. And constantly keeping a hood on helps. I use a small collapsible rubber one built into a B+W filter so that I only need to unfold it when shooting around difficult light.

Cool Playing in the dark again

OK< my so called social life consists primarily of hanging around work on Saturday nights. On this particular Saturday night the guys in the yard were busting their humps to finish a rush job. I was making sure everything was fitting together correctly.

It just so happened that I finally had Bubba loaded and ready for action. First roll from my second M5. Our favorite 5.0cm/1.4 lens and a roll of Kodak BW400CN. Following the advice gathered here, the lens was stopped down halfway between 1.4 & 2.0 and I have acquired a B+W MRC UV filter.

You'll notice that light fall off in the corners is excessive. So what. I love this lens.

These also qualify in Back Alley joe's single light portraits.

Thanks for looking.

Pretty much...."Raw" straight out of the camera, with little to no color adjusting......

A 1950 #500512xx Nikkor SC f1.4/50 in LTM on my trusty '87 Leica M6 on "Crossprocessed" color slide film, shot wide open @ 500 sec - In mid afternoon Florida sun -
(not too bad for a $85 lens, that's got minty glass, but a banged up filter ring, that flares without a hood, luckily I did get the original hood with this lens as I bought it)

I'm still trying to *find* a work area for my Nikkor f1.4s, while they are very contrasty compared to the Canon f1.5/50 -
while the Canon is a great all around shooting lens, I have still to find the niche for the Nikkors in my everyday use as "PinUp" photo lenses -

The colors in the crossprocessed work with the Nikkor seem to run very yellow and green and are somewhat "softer" than the same style of work shot on the Canon, (I like what the Nikkor does better) the Nikkor seems to be made for shooting these *strange* films, the coating has a lot to do with it as well, the Nikkor's Bluish/Purple hue enhances the crossprocessing, as where the Canon's Brown/Goldish hue comes out flatter _ (just what I had noticed)... someone has suggested to me to shoot Black and White work, that's slightly underexposed to compensate for the high contrast the lens has, that too might work rightly into my style of shooting?

Tom

PS: While I haven't tried a comparison yet with my two Nikkors, but I've been told that the "Tokyo" versions (the #5005 lenses) have a creamier bokeh than later "Japan" lenses, but you know how rumors start LOL!

Greetings from Singapore. I am keen to share some of pictures from this Nikkor. It's the reason why I bought a M8.

The copy I bought from Tokyo is heavily flawed. Small scratches on all the elements, rub marks on the front and rear, dried out grease and oil on the blades. Basically a list of all the things you should avoid. But the pictures I am getting from it are amazing. It's a great combination of softness, abbreviation, sharpness, speed, bokeh. A little of everything in just the right amount.

After posting this. I have decided to get another copy from ebay. Cheers.

I want a Nikkor 50 1.4 and 2.0 in LTM to add to my 50 collection. Great lenses for B&W portraits.

Thanks,

Random friends pictures with the 50 f1.4 SC in screw mount (all at f1.4). It makes great B&W portraits, definitely.

Can anyone explain the options available for someone wishing to use this lens with a M-mount camera? I suppose the old LTM version is the only option? Thanks!

The 5cm f1.4 is a Sonnar optical design and a lot more compact than the 50mm f1.4 which is a Gaussian optical design. The 5cm/1.4 has good central sharpness even wide open, but the later 50mm/1.4 is a better performer, especially out in the corners. The 5cm/1.4 can show flare fairly easily, but its almost impossible to make the Millennium 50mm/1.4 flare. I haven't succeeded yet. No doubt the modern multi-coating helps with that. See pics below:

Millennium 50mm f1.4 on the left, 5cm f1.4 is in the middle

In LTM, for 50/2 and 50/1.4, normally down to 1m RF-coupled, and from there down to 16" un-coupled. It can be modified to couple down to .7m on an M-body though - I use mine like this; it's the only Sonnar that can do this. See also here:

Best,

>>What is closest focusing distance of the various Nikkor 50mm incarnations?<<

For the S-mount lenses, close focus is limited by the camera itself ... 36 inches (0,9 m)and no closer.

50mm portrait

I took this picture of Laura McCallum a long time ago using the RF 50mm f1.4 wide open. I has always been a bit of a favorite with me.

A couple of recent images with a Nikon Sp and 5cm 1.4.

First is about f/4


In this one, the light was perfect but she only wanted me to take picturs of her tongue. Still, it shows the lens close up and wide open.
