Do those who had this lens and 35 FLE feel like the Nokton 35/1.5 is actually better lens than the FLE? It seems like the only advantage of the FLE is sharpness wide open and less vignetting. Nokton wins everywhere else. The 35 FLE is glued to my M 99% of the time. I shoot a lot of environmental portraits often at f1.4. The rendering of the 35 FLE is just magical. It is also very sharp wide open. Furthermore, cosmetically it matches M bodies perfectly. I feel like 35mm is the one focal lengths I donít want to compromising. I may need to get one of these to see how it feels in real life.

The Leica 35mm Summilux FLE is an amazing lens. Many say it is the reference for 35mm lenses. Unless you are looking for some particular aberration (defect) for some unique rendering for a specific image there is no point in looking elsewhere. Like you, mine is mounted on my M11 over 90% of the time.

That said, the Nokton is an excellent lens and the price difference is significant. But I would never swap it for my Lux FLE.

How well does the black coating/paint on the V1 wear? Obviously anodizing is super durable, but Iím unsure about the newer coating Voigtlander is using on their aluminum bodied lenses.

I've had mine for about a year with no paint defects at all. Looks brand new.
I chose the aluminum because of the weight savings and have had no regrets at all.
