Great lens this is the sharpest and best 50mm lens you can get. focus is fast and smooth. Sharper at f2 than other 50mm lenses are at f3.5. sweet bokeh. A must for serious prime shooters. while I like the versatility of a zoom and ease of auto focus, this lens brought the fun back into photography. this lens will give you excellent results on every thing from an FTn through a D4 and every Nikon in-between. Note: I wear glasses and am over 60 and have no trouble focusing the 50mm f1.2 AIS on either a D2x or a D700. February 22, 2014
Awesome Lens This lens is awesome. I fell in love with it within the first 5 minutes of using it. Paper thin depth of field at 1.2 and super sharp. The bokeh is incredible. Great for video too. Very cinematic looking, especially when racking focus. This is absolutely my favorite lens so far. February 21, 2014
Fantastic low light lens a must for my camera bag Absolute must in your camera bag if you take photos at anytime day or night. The nine bladed aperture gives outstandingly sharp defraction spikes at f/4 to f/16. January 26, 2013
Ethereal Lens I've always wanted to own an f1.2 lens and I don't mind if it's manual focus for the sole purpose of shooting candid portraits in low light situation without the option of speedlights. I've spent days trying to mine this lens and finally after all the searching, I finally found a very mint one. The build quality is superb. It is rock solid and sure it's gonna last for years. It looks like the crystal clear glass and high grade metal body are both machined out from Nikon's factory to be a classic masterpiece lens. Shooting portraits at its widest aperture of f1.2 produces stunning, dreamy, soft, heavenly and ethereal looking photos I've seen so far. That is what the flavour of the lens offers. One of my friends said that my portraits look classic as the one she saw in Time and Life magazines.=) what a nice compliment.... I don't really recommend using this lens on a bright and sunny condition since modern DSLR's CMOS & CCD sensors are highly reflective and sensitive to light and to this bright lens leaving you overexpose images. Use this lens indoors, on overcast days, early morning and late afternoon shots and you'll be astounded by its capabilities. Highly recommended for normal lens shooting. It's not intimidating on streets photography as well thus subjects will appear calm and relax. May 15, 2012
fabulous 50mm great build quality that's why i love nikkor manual focus lens, and I was surprised with the performance of this lens at F 1.2, its sharp! stopped down from F/2 this lens produces stunning picture quality. and i love F/ 1.2 aperture its give me extra speed in dim light.

Answer: 
The NIKKOR 50mm f/1.2 Lens (product 1435) is compatible with the D7100 however, it is a manual focus lens so it will not autofocus on the D7100 or any other camera body.

I have a D90 and prefer the fastest lens available such as the NIKKOR f1.2 where manual focus is a must whilst viewfinder monitoring.

Answer: 
All digital cameras are sensitive to both UV and IR radiation but since capturing these spectral ranges can lower the image quality of visible light images, they are filtered out in the camera.
However, many of our cameras can still be used for this type of shooting. For IR shooting you can use an "87c" type filter to prevent the exposure of any visible light and just expose IR. While we can't offer any support for this type of shooting there are many third-party web sites which discuss in-depth IR/UV shooting.
