Dirk, please post some average images so that I don't feel quite so envious.
Seriously good stuff as always ! Damn it, I've been resisting a noctilux f1 and then this thread springs up...
Haha - thanks Robert - the last shots were done with the rare Nikkor 85/1.5 though, but just for you, I'll post one more, taken with the Noctilux:portrait - JC - gorgeous

The 8,5/2 isn't much taller or wider than a 50 Summilux, though it weighs a bit more and also has the weight distributed a bit differently, more to the front.
The 85/1.5 indeed is a lot larger, than the 85/2 - it looks about similarly sized, as a 75 Summilux v1.
I am now seriously looking for the original bayonet lens hood (pricey ?) for the 85/1.5 Nikkor, which is veeery hard to come by.
I agree with Robert; incredibly nice shots, Dirk.
Here's again the Nikkor 8.5/2 on Ektar at about f2.
Thanks, and nice this Nikkor 85/2 - the background looks very, very similar to the 85/1.5, which I love it for!
Yes, fabulous thread here and a GAS activator too...
Dirk, that set is outstanding, really nice work there ! Noctilux 1.0 prices ain't gonna fade...
My humble contribution with a Canon LTM 50 1.2 on the M8:
Thanks Jean-Marc! I love that look of the 50/1.2 Canon in your shot - it looks a lot like the Canon 0.95 - very similar imaging (next time around, I will have my 0.95 ready hopefully, to do some fun stuff and plan also, to play some with vintage glass, once the safety shots are in the bag.
Leica M9, f2/35mm Summicron lens, 2nd version.
