    Cons: 1.Few DSLR screens are friendly to MF. 2.Existence of the discontinued Noct Nikkor dwarfs the subject lens.

    Pros: 1.Excellent build quality that makes every recent Nikkor looks shabby. 2.Sharp image right from wide-open (though under a veil of SA).

    Summary: I can understand why Nikon makes DSLR unfriendly to MF, otherwise everyone would prefer the MF gems over the AF ones.

    Cons: Very narrow DoF wide open which makes it difficult to manual focus on digital without split screen.

    Pros: Great build and image quality. Really good past f2. Very bright image which helps with manual fousing.

    Summary: One of the few manual focus lenses that you can still buy new from Nikon and the only f1.2 nikkor.
