Here's a marginally interesting read about the Noctilux. I can't agree with much of what he has to say about the Noctilux being hard to work with, but he did hit one nail on the head when he observes that "...the best things in life are rarely rational." Noctilux lenses are maligned by some, as is the bokeh they produce. I suspect it is not out of a distaste for bokeh or a misunderstanding of how to effectively use it as a composition tool. I suspect that it is based on a hatred of the Noctilux lenses based on the price, as is the case for some who hate all M cameras and lenses because of their price tags, which is an utterly childish and self-centered outlook IMHO. The author is using the 0.95 Noctilux, which may be harder to work ith than the older f/1.0 Noctilux, which I have. I'm wondering if those who have used both the 0.95 and the 1.0 if the newer f/0.95 version is harder to work with than its older sibling?

My Noctilux F/.95 will not set to automatic detection on my new M10, received yesterday. That lens does set to automatic detection on my M240, and my WATE lens sets to automatic detection on both cameras. What is the problem with my Noctilux F/.95 on my new M10? What to do? As a temporary solution, I have manually set my new M10 for the Noctilux F/1. Is that recommendable for fine performance? I thankfully welcome all advice on this matter.
