abberwockt, nice shots with the Konica
Joe, beautiful pastel misty shot!
Andrew, wonderful colour palette in these shots! Really like the way the 50 Lux pre-Asph, paints
Gary, great shot! Very nice B&W treatment.
Hilmar, I am amazed how the 50 Cron Apo captures the detail in the first portrait, and yet maintains the glow!!!

Shot from Bangkok, with the 50 Nocti f/1.0

Joe, that is a beautiful moody shot.
Gary, the BW has great sharpness!
Charles, absolutely amazing portrait. What is the MFD of Noct f1?

Here are few from Savannah , 50lux.
River front.

They use Bamboo to hand made rose. I shoot this photo in the morning when I arrive there. At night, we went there again to have dinner. They still there, not many people buy those things. I feel a little bit sad for people struggle to living.

Lenticular, thanks a lot for your nice comments!

Winston, thanks! Love the serenity of the sunrise shot. The warming up shot is well composed with excellent timing.

Zhangyue, thanks for your comments Love the rendering of the 21 ZM. Strong contrast and saturation and very sharp.

Charles, thanks! Indeed caught with my hand in the cookie jar The portrait of the young monk is outstanding!

Ron, thanks for the comments. Helimat had a 5D3 and if I'm not mistaken the ZE 35/1.4. Beautiful rendering from that lens! Love the color combinations in the distillery shots.

Jabber, that's an unusual subject very nicely executed

Joe, I'm very glad you could see all this in my photograph Very keen eye indeed Your boats shot is unreal! Beautiful! But so much veiling haze from the lens

Andrew, love the color combinations.

Gary, nice dramatic perspective!

Michael and Edward, thank you very much for your kind comments
Michael, the Nocti f/1.0 has a MFD of 1.0m. I do wish it was 0.7m, but I suppose there would be the width of hair DOF @ f/1.0. The shot are was not cropped, from about 1.1m @ f/1.0.
Excellent set of images from Savannah Great portrait under the harsh lighting.

Another shot with the 50 Nocti f/1.0 in Tainan

Superb portrait Charles! Perfect focus and background.

Michael - very nice shots with 50lux. Which version do you own. I was considering looking at picking up a pre-ASPH but I'm not 100% sure at this point. I'd like some input on how it compares to the ASPH version.

Gary, I have the 50lux ASPH. Please see my early comments about its performance.

I also confirm that 50lux is incredible sharp infinity. sharper than 50cron at f2. I see alias/moire WO on the roof infinity within 12mm cycle. That is match their published MTF. but not in 1M range, it has about the same sharpness as my 50cron. Both 50cron rigid is also very good center at f2, has moire in center as well at f2, but only 4-5mm cycle. At f5.6-f8, they are slightly worse than 50lux overall(very minor), but at 3/4 frame 50lux FC dip zone, 50cron actually better.

To surmise a little based on my personal experience along with Ron's

One thing you should consider is latest pre-ASPH have two version with same formula, E43 with MFD 1m, this could be a pain. The other is E46 which has 0.7M MFD, but price will be above $2500. Consider you can have ASPH at $3200 zone now, you need judge that. I never own pre-ASPH version, but from what I see, its bokeh has more character. WO Center sharpness should about the same as ASPH at least in portrait range. I will get one if price is right myself. Stop down, it doesnít have ASPH or 50cron performance from its MTF, but I believe all early Leica lux design is put high priority in low light performance and character instead of cross frame sharpness; they are artist tool but not scientific tool

Charles, thanks for your feedback. I donít have any doubt about that image is free of crop from the look of it. Just curious to compare it to 0.95 version

Thanks for the comments guys! I guess I need to clean my UV filter and check for lens fungus, even if it was a ASPH lens!

Gary, very nice B&W tonality on that shot.
Hilmar very nice shots with the 50APO. Bokeh looks really smooth!
Michael, lots of pop to that portrait, excellent! .. and thanks for the info.
Charles, beautiful rendering on the Nocti 1.0 portrait, excellent!

Thanks for confirming this is the case. I definitely agree as it's one side effect I'm seeing with the ISO-less approach to the M9, but more so for some of the wider lenses, which of course, makes perfect sense. The solution would be to disable lens coding and apply Cornerfix, LCC or Adobe Flat Field correction, but is a bit of a hassle too. And completely agree with your observations regarding coding and the 50. I noticed this also with a number of lenses. It was particularly a problem with my hand-coded ZM glass, where from time to time the

Hi, Ron. I decided to give the Adobe Flat Field correction plug-in for LR4 a try today, and I'm really impressed. I just shot a single calibration shot with a tissue over my lens at infinity and wide open aimed toward the sky, and it is as good or better than any of the Leica profiles for my collapsible. You can run it simultaneously (batch) over as many files as you wish, and it gives you the option of only correcting color (and not vignetting,) which I thought that Edward may be interested in with his ZMs. Honestly, it will only add a couple of clicks to my workflow, so I don't consider it a burden in the least (unlike CornerFix.) Granted, I'm only shooting the 50, so I don't have to keep track of which lens is which (accept for when I do an occasional portrait session with my 90.)

Here is a quick test shot with my 50 Cron V1 at f8 and near infinity with coding turned off. While not terrible, the cyan shift is noticeable in places like the right hand side of the building, and it was bugging me enough to try coding again:







Here is the same shot with the flat field correction applied.






Lightroom stacks the version, so this doesn't clutter things up, and I think no coding plus flat-field correction is my choice from now on. Coding the lens is normally fine for me, but I don't love how the edges look with the vignetting correction in low light, so I want to avoid any vignetting correction (even when I set the camera to high ISO, there's just too much of the vignetting correction, IMO.)

BTW, nice pictures everyone!! Sorry for the boring test shots.

Edward, Gary, Joe and Winston, thank you for your comments
Michael, I think I have mentioned before, that I actually prefer the Nocti f/1.0, over the 0.95 since it is lighter, smaller, about half the price and it is one of the last lenses by Mandler. I would love the 0.95, but it was not in my budget Having seen some of the images now with the new 50 Cron Apo, I would be tempted to trade a few lenses!
Douglas, nice work with the comparisons
Winston, very nice paint like landscape!
Allen, beautifully rendered portrait! Great M-M shot with 35 Lux at 3200 ISO!!

A few more from yesterday, with either the 21mm Lux or the Noct. Just got my 82mm adapter for the 21 Lux and a red filter.
