Dear Popo, I know... It annoys a lot more to me.... This lens was bought ~20 years ago, it sat unprotected in the garage for 15 years. Dust has gotten inside the lens, inside!! i dont know what to do to get it cleaned. And i dont trust camera store to fix it.

Dear Bob
How does the f/1.2 working out for you? :)
I was surprised that you are aware of the Noct-nikkor on Nikon's Tales page.

It's nice to see people that understand the value of these stuff :)
It's b/c i took my f/1.2 lens to a store and see how much i could sell it for 8), I was buying an Eyecup. My lens seriously have no defects and no scratch, great condition, so the Guy said "$200" I tried not to laugh at him... :lol: Then I left

Oh dear, that lens looks amazing, and i want something similar very badly now. Anyway i should stop dreaming and do the best with what i've got!
BTW, some lovely images there!

Wow, those are some nice shots! I liked the portrait in particular. Great detail. Having a nice subject helps too! Makes me think about jumping ship ...
