Hello,
what is your favourite lens among your MF Nikkors? And why?

Currently I own 28/2.8, 50/1.2 and 105/2.5 AIS and like them all.
For some reason, I cannot pick my sole favourite.

Probably on top is 105/2.5. It renders OOF areas really nice and is crazy sharp at f/5.6.
28/2.8 comes close next. It is a bit strange lens on DX but I really like its optical performance and especially the close focusing ability.
50/1.2 comes third (last is a bad word for such a great lens). The lens is a bit hard to work with on such a dense sensor (16mp) and the focus shift requires LiveView for critical focusing on wide apertures. The lens really shines on D700 but I cannot afford this body.

I used to own 50/1.4 and 50/2 but sold them because of 50/1.2. But still, they are really nice lenses too.

What is your ranking?
