  1. 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.
  2. I had my heart set on getting a used Noctilux 50MM f/0.95, but I also found a used Noctilux 75MM f1.25. I wanted the 50 because I regret selling my Summilux ASPH 50MM - I really miss that dreamy/creamy look! The 50 Noctilux could be a suitable replacement, with an extra stop to boot! The "more usable" focal length is another plus. On the other hand, the 75 is appealing to me because it is a more modern lens with less CA/purple fringing, less vignetting, and a sharper look. I also don't have any 75MM yet. I shoot a lot of portraiture, but admittedly it's more environmental, so not totally sure if 75MM would be the right FL anyway. Still, I think I could make use of the 75. Any thoughts on which one would be "better," all things considered? Do I get both?! FYI - I am shooting on an M10 and also have a 50 APO and a 35 Lux FLE. Thanks all!

    Leica Noctilux E60 M Mount Lens I am selling my beloved Leica Noctilux lens. It simply does not get enough use and is just sitting in my closet so I figured it would be a good time to make somebody's holiday very grand by offering this up for sale. It is in great used condition with just some minor marks here and there. It comes with the lens, 2x caps (front rear), hood and a Leica Keychain. Let me know if you have any questions. Serious inquiries only. $5650USD shipped in CONUS via FedEx with tracking. superdan139@yahoo.com is my email.


  4. I am (was) a Noctilux virgin. Always desired one never able to afford one.... UNTIL NOW! I had a moment of madness after selling my (heave to lug around) PhaseOne kit and then without any consideration to the environment put the lot down on this minty baby from 1977. I am very excited. My DREEEEAM combination was to own a Leica M Monochrome with a Noctilux on the front of it. Dream come true. I have been using a Canon LTM 50mm f1.2 and it has been a very good servant and given me some great images. I'm not sure I will sell it because I am hoping they will produce very different images, but, between you & I, I am extremely happy and consider myself exceptionally fortunate to be able to own such an amazing set.. I will post some photos at some point when my heart rate slows down a bit. I do most of my photo posting at http://www.500px.com/leicam I guess everyone has a Noctilux story at some point in their life. I remember the very first time I saw one and used it and thought then, I would love to get one one day. Added some photos of the lens, I do also have the hood but no box. I think it is in AMAZING condition for a 1977 lens, I think the previous owner took very good care of it and I hope to do the same.. it will get A LOT of use now I own it but I will also respect the condition and value of it.

  8. 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!

  10. 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
  11. 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...
  12. 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
  13. 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.

  15. 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?
  16. 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.
  17. 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!

  19. 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...
  20. 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.

  22. I recently purchased an SL, and have the 90mm Summicron-SL as my only SL lens. I plan to buy the 50 Summicron-SL when it comes out, but who knows when that will be. So, I am on the fence between the 50mm Summilux-SL and the 0.95 Noctilux in the meantime. Does anyone have experience with both on the SL? and what opinions do you have to either? Looking at the specs, it appears that the Summilux weighs much more than the Noctilux does. On the other hand, the Summilux benefits from Leica's recent innovations. Difficult choice.
