A bit of an unknown gem. The Voigtlander re-make of the classic Nokton 58mm f1.4. Very good - better than the regular Nikkor 50mm f1.4. Voigtlander made a small batch of them in 2012/13. They might still be available - not a bargain, but sometimes the image quality warrants the price. It has the contacts in the mount that allows it to "talk" to the digital Nikon SLR's. My somewhat battered F ignores the communication.
2nd'd. The Voigtlander 58/1.4 is a real gem. The close focus alone is amazing. It renders like a dream. If I was putting together a Nikon FMx kit it would be made up of Zeiss and Voigtlander lenses.
