Agree with the two of you on both points.. I feel that on photo forum I tend to post shots based on the lens characteristics rather then because they are good shots. I do this because its nice to have people to chat with about lenses ect.. People who know and care about lenses! So it's good to see what lenses can do and I love to hear what people have to say. So I suspect that a lot of people on FM do the same.

The lux is one magical lens though!

To clarify my actual Noctilux intention. It would be using the 50APO during the day and the Noctilux at night. I could almost get away with just using the Lux, but if I'm going carry around two lenses to swap at night for one extra stop, I would rather just walk around with one lens. So the noct would purely be for the speed not the DOF.. For DOF the 50lux is an awesome performer and the 75 APO is actually fantastic for all crops of people portraits..

So purely on speed for night shooting.. But good to hear everyone's thoughts.

Allen, great set!!! Love both shots

Adam, I really like the way the 50 APO renders and yet it is so sharp. IMO you would love the 50 Nocti f/0.95 as it would give you the unique look which would compliment your 50 APO.

I also have the 50 Lux, and it is probably one of the best 50's I have owned. I cannot vouch for the 0.95, but I love the f/1.0 for portraits. Most of time during the late afternoon with the Nocti f/1.0, I will use f/2.8 to f/4.0, and it still renders very differently to any 50 I have owned.

Thanks for the comments all!

Adam - great color with that 50 APO

Allen - really like the first shot of the last series


Two with the Canon 100 f/2














Here is one with the 35 Nokton II at f/2 that my daughter (6 years old!) took of me. I was shocked she actually had it in focus and the comp was excellent....beginner luck

rsolti13 - Nice photo your daughter took, should let her use the camera more often. Like your second one.

airfrogusmc - The third photo of your second set on this page (793), nice.

mikethevilla - Fantastic, looking forward to more.

Yes, I like that about the 50APO as well.. I'm thinking that the 50APO is fine for daytime use. Although I'm sure the Noctilux is great during the day as well as at night. I'd probably buy the Noctilux if it had a clear advantage over the 50LUX when it came to night time shooting.

I'd have a hard time selling the 50Lux, and if you're after speed, it's a better buy then the 50APO.. Any other reason, and I would choose the 50APO. And yes your Noctilux f/1 shots are unique in that sense (although I also like your 75lux shots)..

So maybe I'm curious how much real world advantage you would get from the .95 vs the 1.4
(because there's F-stops and then T-stops. Which can be misleading in real world applications).

Best,
Adam

IMO the advantage is not the difference whether it is 0.95, 1.0 or 1.4, but just what rendering you prefer. No secret, of course I prefer Mandler designed lenses, so the Nocti f/1.0 and 75 Lux are easy choices. I am now waiting for two 50 Cron Rigid II DR, that will modified for the M-M/M240, again for the rendering.

Thanks for the comments and likes for my recent photos.

Katie, cool photo of your son and I like the b&w conversion too.
Adam, wonderful colors and rendering of those pink flowers (Japanese cherry tree?)
Allen, three great street sets from you lately. I'm particularly intrigued by the photos where you point the camera downwards against the pavement/street and create some really good compositions and very interesting photos overall. Jealous, I am.
Mike, great set. Where is it from?

About the 50 Noctilux, although they are very expensive whether it is the latest version or not and the fact that I already own the excellent 50 Summilux ASPH I still find myself being very attracted by this lens. Maybe more out of curiosity than of a real need but it is something special with such a fast lens and the possibilities it gives you. If I'll ever acquire one is a completely different story

Thanks Charles, Adam, Edward and Joakim. You guys have all been rocking this thread. This tread flies and its hard to keep up if and gets almost impossible if you stay away for a few days.

A triplet from this morning with the 50 Summilux, summer might be nice but when it comes to photography autumn is better!

I look forward to your posts with the 50 Cron Rigid II..
You make a good point about it being more for rendering then shutter speeds and iso gain, probably won't get the Noct right away. I'll reward myself in 2014 sometime, and won't sell any lenses unnecessarily.

Hmm... I am in the same boat. I'll satisfy my curiosity in 2014
Gonna try and convince myself to use the 75cron today along with the magnifier and if needed EVF.
We'll see if I can pry the 50APO off my camera.

And yes, from what I can tell it's a cherry blossom. Beautiful colors in those trees.

Allen, last 2 sets are really nice. From set 1, my favourites are the man with the bar (excellent composition and moment) and the women with the stubborn dog From set 2, I really like the 2 smoking men.

Ryan, lovely portraits of the children, and your daughter seems to have the same talent as her father

Mike, fantastic set. Love it, colors, compositions, everything!

Joakim, second and third shots are outstanding!
