  1. We already have a very extensive 'Mandler Magic' topic, but as much I am keen on Mandler's signature look and his contribution to the "Leica glow", there is another very distinguished gentleman in the 'House of Leica' that as a leader of Leica's optical design team since 2002 gave us a bunch of new high performance M-Lenses and pushed the terms FLE, ASPH and APO towards modern Leica perfection. He was the guy that had the balls to say Dr. Mandler's 75mm Summilux 1.4 was his *least* favorite design and went on to "Make Summilux great again" - all the way down to 21mm. Show us some of the "clinical look" of the Peter Karbe magic and do tell what lens he designed is your favorite...
  2. Most of us seem to be photographers as well as collectors. Show me your favorite lenses, old and new alike. I like the Noctilux range for the extreme apertures, but I prefer the Summilux range for the best speed:size/weight ratio. Here’s a Summilux gathering of 21, 24, 28, 35, 50 and 75mm. All in black.
  3. I heard a rumor in January that Leica was making a 35mm Noctilux lens. Was curious if anyone had heard anything more about this? Although I’m happy with my 35mm Summicron I think a Noctilux would be super cool to add to my bag. The size of it would be my only concern, as the bigger lenses aren’t appealing to me.
  4. I haven't used my Noctilux in quite some time. I'm wondering if this is a normal issue wide open with point light sources or if there is something wrong with my lens. I've seen it from other light sources like neon signs wide open at night.
  5. ..or maybe not Lucy, but I love the reflection of the sky in her sunglasses M10 / Noctilux 1.0
  6. I really love taking random street photography like this. Camera: Leica M-P (typ 240) Lens: Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH. Location: Dubai - Jumeirah Beach Residence Welcome 2016
  7. I am curious about different peoples opinion about how effective are Leica's slide-out hoods. I have seen conflicting posts for some time. As an example one person thinks the 75mm APO-Summicron is optically an excellent lens, except the lens hood is ineffective so the lens is a poor design. Another thinks the lens hood on the same lens is just fine. I know I am talking about a variety of lenses over several generations. But I have a variety of lenses from several generations. In some cases I have purchased additional hoods from third parties, such as from Mr. Overgaard, and some I have come to hate, like the plastic hood on the last version of the 50mm Noctilux f/1. One of the lenses I am most curious is the 50mm APO-Summicron, but I would like to ask about others as well...
  8. Dear all, Has anyone some real world experience using the CL + noctilux ? (handling, focusing, ...) Thanks Didier
  9. I'm a former Canon user, and the 85mm f/1.2L II was practically my standard lens, because I love bokeh :-) Has anyone here owned both this lens and the Noctilux f/0.95? The 85mm has longer focal length, but the Noctilux is faster. Do you think the extra light can be a substitute for the shorter focal length in regards to bokeh? Which one do you prefer (maybe a stupid question in this forum)? I find the 50mm angle more versatile than 85mm, so I think the Noctilux could be the perfect lens for me … if I ever can afford it!

  11. Hi I went out for a walk before brunch today with my new m9 with a 50mm noctilux f1 and b+w ND filter 1,8. I shot all the pictures at f1 / 250 sec to get that super shallow depth of field, however when I returned home and downloaded the images into LR pronounced vignetting is highly visible. Colors also shift somewhat. I believe this maybe the characteristic of this lens.I set the m9 to manual lens detection with the 50mm f/1 selected. Is this correct? How can I see if my lens is coded? For me the vignetting is a bit much! I also noticed in lightroom that the f stop is not being recorded correctly. I shot most of these images at f/1 250 sec iso 160 but Lightroom shows iso 160 50mm f/9.5 1/250 Does anyone know why this is happening? Please seem my images attached: http://web.mac.com/vincentvandenberg/m9_with_noctilux_brightsunlight_f1/L1011820-Edit.jpg http://web.mac.com/vincentvandenberg/m9_with_noctilux_brightsunlight_f1/L1011917-Edit.jpg http://web.mac.com/vincentvandenberg/m9_with_noctilux_brightsunlight_f1/L1011911.jpg

  13. Hi, just got a brand-new Noctilux f/0.95 for my M9... I set the lens detection to "Auto", and yet I find that when I press "Info" it shows the lens listed as "Uncoded." As this lens is obviously coded, what could be wrong here? I've actually never used a coded lens on my M9 before (have a collection of older lenses), so perhaps there's something going on with my camera body? Looking forward to any advice / suggestions you guys might have.
  14. if the price for a mint 50mm Noctilux f/1 is the same as a mint/new 50mm Summilux ASPH were the same, which one is your choice? There is not much head on comparison or opinion on this. thanks for your input.
  15. Today I could not find Noctilux listed on Leica website and the link to Summilux 35 broken?
  16. Hi there, I have been working on a batch of photos I took in Paris some time ago with M9+Noctilux 0.95. That was the only lens I took along with me, so when it felt necessary, I also used other apertures other than just 0.95. There are photos that really make me wonder. I simply cannot tell whether they are just normal from the lens (concerning the details rendering), or I should send the lens to be readjusted with the M9, or were my hands actually shaking ... Here are two samples, both cropped from 1:1, without any post-processing. They were both taken from the top level of the Eiffel Tower after 19:00 in the evening. The top image was shot at 1/350s and the lower one 1/125s. In both photos I scale-focused, simply moved the infinity mark to the aperture f4. With that I would expect the image should be focused all through. So, this is as sharp/focused as I can to get in this enlargement from Noctilux in that shooting condition?
  17. Greetings Folks, Just wanted to share a series shot at the World Trade Centre in NY: World Trade Centre – NY | Photo This & That The series was shot on an M9 with a 21mm Elmarit, 35mm Summicron ASPH, 50mm Noctilux ASPH and the 90mm Sumamrit. Cheers, Edmond
