Only played with a few in the local camera shops, never owned one. It's a basic Tessar lens with a simple single helicoid design, so the entire front of the lens rotates when you focus. Not exactly user friendly. Expensive only because of its rarity, but prices are down a lot locally. Can easily find one for $400 or so now. For a shooter, a Nikkor-H 50/2 LTM is a better option - cheaper, faster, closer focusing, and more user friendly ergonomics.
