Joe, the Nocti looks great. Especially like the one of your son. I would love to be able to play with one of those one day, very unique rendering
Gary, I really like how you've been using the Canon, the output looks great. I really like the flower and the birdhouse.
Edward, sorry to hear about your Leica troubles. I have quit and come back a couple of times, I can speak from experience . If you like the rangefinder way of shooting (which I prefer), sorry mate, you're stuck. If you could care less about rangefinder experience then the options are either Fuji or Sony. I had the Nex 5N with Leica glass. Images turned out great, very nice to have live view, swivel screen, etc. The ergonomics are what killed it for me. The Fuji looks very nice, have never used it. I think software is finally catching up with the sensor where it will probably be the best way of using M glass outside of a Leica. You will need to worry about red edges/corners, but will really have to with any system I believe outside of the GXR. For sensor quality and ergonomics I find the Fuji XE-1 as the most intriguing right now.
Took out my Canon 50 f/1.5 Sonnar, very pleased with the results. The lens is surprisingly sharp wide open dead center only at near to mid distance. Infinity isn't really usable until about f/4.
All shots below pretty much untouched, maybe a little change in exposure
f/2 - really sharpens up here
bonus - 35 Nokton II wide open from roughly same spot
I have a Zeiss C Sonnar on the way.....will do a little shootout with the CV, Zeiss and Canon
