  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. Hi, I was wondering if we will get a 50 or 70 mm Noctolux but SL Body and AF. Would you love it? Would you buy it? Cheers
  3. I know, another question about a lens. And I also know, that only I can answer for myself. Yet, I am still interested in other opinions. On my M I have a 24mm, several 50’s, and the nokton 75/1.5. I am seriously considering to add the 90mm apo as well as a SL75 apo. A remark from @trickness about the Noctilux 75mm made me take a look into this lens. I never considered such lens before, but must admit the rendering is really nice, but so is its price. But instead of a m90 and the SL75, and with selling the nokton, the Noctilux comes within reach (with some additional cash ofcourse). But will a Noctilux be worth it? I know many here would like one, had one or still have one. If you had one, why did you sold it? If you want one, why don’t you go for it? thanks, Olaf
  4. 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
  5. Hi folks... just wanted to open up a thread to hear your experience with these 3 lenses - on the issue of focus shit: Noctilux - I have struggled between getting a f0.95 and f1v4 and decided to go for the latter... however i tried 2 copies of the v4 and both have focus shift problems at MFD (i shot a lot of pictures at 0.7m-2m range) and I returned them... a few leica hobbyist nearby told me that this is a common problem with the f1v4 (and f0.95 as well!!!) - one of them claimed that he has personally played around with 6-7 copies of f1v4 and ALL have focus shift problems... so just wanna to hear your thoughts and experience on this? or maybe it's me who's being too picky??? Summilux 50mm E43 - similar problem... tried 2 copies and have the same focus shift issue... this old lens is great, gives amazing colors and rendering... but again, is the focus shift issue universal with this lens? Summilux 75mm - I have never tried this lens but this is definitely going into my shopping list... but I am already quite beat with my bad experience on focus shift with the Noct and E43 so just wondering if this lens would have the same problem, or should I just simply accept it? Thanks a lot in advance...
  6. Hey guys. Just wrote a review of this lens after owning it for 10 months, with some pictures. Check it out if you'd like Leica Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH review | Observations
  7. Hi all: I'm currently considering the purchase of a used Noctilux 0.95 and the seller tells me that the lens focuses slightly past the infinity position - i.e, when focusing on distant hills you can focus past that position. When doing search on this topic (on this forum and elsewhere), there does not seem to be a consensus data/opinion on this. I've even seen a comment about how this implies back focus at nearer focal lengths. Have people had used a noctilux which had this characteristic? If so, has it affected focusing at other positions? Or is it just that the infinity stop is just incorrectly set up for this lens? Thanks Anil
  8. Aus gegebenem Anlass ein paar Schnappies von einer Anti-Atomkraft-Demo in Greifswald. Dort befindet sich in einer landschaftlich reizvollen Umgebung ein atomares Zwischenlager. M9, Noctilux
  9. Good old Noctilux 50/1.0 and Ektar 100, shot over the summer.
  10. Greetings Folks, Thought this might be of some interest; my review of the 50mm Noctilux ASPH is now online at BJP's (British Journal of Photography) website: Light of the night: testing Leica's Noctilux-M f/0.95 lens - British Journal of Photography Cheers, Edmond
  11. First series of street portraits, shot in June 2011. I shot a similar series of portraits in Derby earlier this year, for the Magnum Workshop with Bruce Gilden. I've tried to continue this series, this time in NY. I feel that I need to add bit more characters, so I plan on coming back to wrap up this series, hopefully with a bit more varied set as a result. But, for now, here's a selection of the portraits I shot this year: (M9 / Noctilux f/1.0)
  12. Greetings Folks, My review of the 50mm Leica f0.95 Noctilux ASPH, with pictures, now on my blog: Leica Noctilux-M 50 mm f0.95 ASPH Review | Photo This & That Cheers, Edmond

  14. 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?
  15. 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
  16. Wie ich heute mitbekommen habe, ist am vergangenen Freitag das Update Nr. 57 von set.a.light erschienen. Mit dieser Software kann Photographie im allgemeinen und Lichtführung im Besonderen virtuell ausprobiert werden. Eine wirkliche Überraschung ist aber seit Freitag die erweiterte Auswahl der Blendeneinstellung. Jetzt wird auch die Blende 0,95 (!) unterstützt. Ich kenne nur das Noctilux mit dieser Blende. Es ist schon interessant, welche Unterschiede Blenden gerade mit großer und sehr großer Öffnung in dieser Simulation zeigen. Zwischen 2,8, 2,0, 1,4, 1,2 und 0,95 liegen offenbar Welten. Es macht einen Unterschied, ob man später auf das fertige Photo schaut oder gleich die Unterschiede im Portrait sieht. Dass jetzt auch das Noctilux mit seiner einmaligen Blende ausprobiert werden kann, finde ich schon erstaunlich. Eine 15 Tage Testversion http://www.elixxier.com/de/downloads/index.php kann die Zeit zwischen den Jahren ausfüllen. Da man Belichtungssets untereinander austauschen kann, wäre ich an anderen Erfahrungen interessiert. So könnte man wirklich objektiv über Belichtung diskutieren und vor allem andere Vorschläge ausprobieren. Das wäre mal ein Fortschritt. Wer ein Noctilux besitzt, kann ja mal Auskunft geben, ob die Simulation der Wirklichkeit entspricht. Die armen Summichron-Anwender (wie ich) sehen jedenfalls auch den Abstand in den Möglichkeiten der Bildgestaltung zum Summilux. (Bitte nicht vergessen, Brennweite 50mm einzustellen.) Ergänzung: Man kann die Simulation auch auf Schwarz-Weiß einstellen. Das ist für MM-Fans ein interessantes Feature.
  17. Dear L-forum, I have a great opportunity to buy a Noctilux lens but no opportunity to test it or compare it. I have just tested the new 0.95 and I like it. It is the version 2 below that has been offered to me: Version 1 = 50mm F1.2 Noctilux Version 2 = 50mm F1.0 E58 Noctilux (removable pin hood) Version 3 = 50mm F1.0 E60 Noctilux (removable hood) Version 4 = 50mm F1.0 E60 Noctilux (built in hood) Does any one of you have experiences about the lens? Did you have some issues with it? I have read a little about focus shift but is it a real problem if I only shoot wide open 98% of the time? It is a lens from 1977 and goes for the same price as a Summilux 1.4. Thank you!
  18. I was surprised to hear back from the Leica Shop in Vienna that they do not rent equipment. Does anyone know where I may rent a Noctilux-M next week in Vienna?

  20. When I joined this forum a couple of months ago I had just bought the M9 with the 50mm Cron. Since then you have helped me with buying the 21mm Elmar f2.8 and the Tele-Elmarit 90mm f2.8. I felt as well that I needed something in between the 50 and 21 and last week being in Hong Kong I bought a new 28mm Cron. It has been a great lens during the weekend to shoot especially the street markets. And architecture as well (I wonder how much I will use the 21mm from now on). I feel I have all the lenses I need. The next thing will be to upgrade the 50mm and then the 90mm. Both to something with larger maximum aperture. 50mm upgrade will come first. I am thinking mainly on the Noctilux. I have tried the 0.95 a couple of times and I like it very much. But the price is very high and would like to know if I should consider earlier Noctilux lenses and in that case which ones? There might be older ones that gives "better" looks? I see they are quite common on the second hand market. (Summilux can also be an option). Thank you.

  23. While I was wandering in Reykjavik streets, saw this little boy was checking outside from that window. Quickly turned my camera on, focused and pictured him. Fortunately he was not shy to give that pose or he might think he's hiding behind the frosted glass. Camera: Leica M-P (typ 240) Lens: Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH. Location: Reykjavik
