Anyone using the CL with Noctilux

Recommended Posts

Not sure what the point of using a large ultra wide aperture exotic 9000 euro lens on a very small APS-C camera ..... which, as has already been pointed out on the TL bit of the forum, nullifies a lot of the characteristic rendering wide open ......

 

It will work ..... but don't expect to see the special signature that the lens is renowned for .....

Yeah I’ve used it on mine. Renders very well. Very similar to the M10 apart from the obvious focal distance diferences with the chropped sensor.

 

The focus is one area I find the CL out performs the M10 though. I can focus with pint point accuracy with the EVF.

My M10 is great if it’s calibrated with the lens but if it drifts slightly it’s a pain. I usually use the EVF with my M10 and Noctilux.

Easy to focus on the CL...nailing perfect focus is always difficult, if the subject or camera moves just a fraction it shifts focus.

I prefer the Noctilux on the M10...but nothing wrong with it on the CL.

 

CL + 50mm Noctilux .95

ISO100  |  1/400  |  .95

Well, like the TL, just consider that most of the weight of a Noctilux isn’t being utilized so your carrying around a lot of baggage. Let’s hope for a TL Noctilux. Hope is doable.

I think there are many other priorities...I dont see this happening anytime in the foreseeable future.

One can hope. A lightweight Noctilux.

Honestly I'd be happy with a TL 50 Summilux.

Please make me get your point: in case of FF equivalent the TL-Summilux 35mm f/1.4 is available

 (or it's a matter of DOF?) otherwise you are thinking about of a 75mm equivalent?

Tks

      Hi guys, 
      I am sure this topic is covered over and over again, but I can't help starting a new thread to help me out in a very difficult decision. It feels like a very difficult decision anyway. 
      Some background: I have been photographing for the past 15 years, and for a few of those professionally. I have been a strong Nikon fan throughout (sorry for swearing in the church), but have also owned and used a lot of film cameras, such as Mamiya, Hasselblad 2000FCW, Canon and Nikon 35mm film cameras. I would say i am a fairly decent photographer with, maybe, a bigger passion and lust than talent. :)
      Two years ago soon my son was born, and I just didn't bring the big cameras with me any longer, and I missed capturing those moments. I stopped all professional photography to make time for family and my day job. I sold all my other cameras, DSLRs and film alike to buy a new, smaller, more handy one. That I actually would bring with me everywhere and take photos. I never bought one, and now I miss I so much. So I started the hunt for the best camera for ME. 
      I have been googling, foruming all across, and I just don't know how to drill it down any further and decide on the actual camera to buy. One thing I do know is that it is going to be a Leica. I just love Leicas philosophy, the picture quality, the "to the roots" thing, and I have decided once and for all that now is the time for me to finally own a Leica. 
      I also know that I am on a budget. Coming in at a total of 2000 USD would be ideal - but if course, Leica is not cheap and there are many factors here. So anywhere between 1000-3000 USD is something I look at. 
      For that money you could buy either a Leica CL kit brand new, Leica TL2 brand new, a used Leica Q, used Leica M9. 
      I am not a rangefinder guy really, but I really like the concept. However, I will use the camera for many different scenarios such as travel photo, family photo, art works that I do, and just general hobby/art photography. 
      I don't do any studio work any longer, so that I don't need, I don't do street photography in that sense, and I don't to long tele situation photography like concerts or sports. So basically, I do everyday photography and would like my photos to be nice to have, maybe frame them, and if I find time again start taking art work photos again. But let's focus on travel, everyday life typ photo. 
      Now - what do you guys think? Where should I place my bets? I guess many of you have tried many of the cameras - which one do you believe I will be happier with?
      Thank you so much! I appreciate all and any input!
