The 50mm Summilux pre-ASPH image thread

There were so many appealing photos in this thread that I managed to try a v2 (E43) Lux 50 Pre-ASPH. But what I regard as the excessively long focus throw made it unsuitable for my use case for this lens: street pictures taken at night. The focus throw of the v3 (E46) lens seems significantly shorter so I’ve asked my dealer to see if he can find me one of those.

The short focus throw is one of the things I love with my E46 too. Some people seem to prefer a longer focus throw, saying it is more accurate, but I have never experienced any difficulties with the short focus throw.
