I also really like the CV 40/1.4.
Thanks, as I have mentioned in my reply to Jacob, purchasing the Nocton 40 will be of low priority.
Sure, no problem. I was just echoing Jacob's opinion of it. As you likely know, it's not like all M compatible lenses share similar imaging characteristics and it's not unusual for people to own multiple lenses in the same or similar focal length for this reason. I think where the 40 comes in is if you're interested in a bit of the old school look, where there is some wide open glow and the bokeh quality is quite active, in contrast with the much sharper across the frame, cleaner, more neutral rendering of a lot of modern lenses. I haven't used the 35/2.5, so I'm not sure how similar the two are in this respect.
As for experience with the Bessa, I can't help you there. Maybe a new thread would be advised to catch the attention of those who would know. Or perhaps try a more specialized forum, such as rangefinderforum.com
Hi Ron, thanks again for further elaboration on the CV40/1.4, much appreciated. I have now two VC lenses and I am pleasantly surprised by it's quality at a fraction of the price of Leica M lenses.
It is a very idea to start a new thread on RM2.
