I guess many have been waiting for this review, or rather, initial thoughts ....
I wanted a few more days to iron out my thoughts, but I figured 'what a better way to start the week than a mini-review?'
Ed9119 already started a review of the 50mm f/0.95 Noctilux with several CS members assisting in the initial thoughts and reviews. Please go here if you would like to see the Noctilux review: http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/threa...x-M-50mm-f0.95
I won't be doing a 'review' of the Noctilux per se, but since the lens came with the M9-P, virtually all of my shots were taken with the Noctilux. The exception is a Summicron-M 28mm f/2 Asph. However, during that very short time when the camera came with the 28mm, it (the camera) was completely NEW to me, and I couldn’t familiarize myself with it so quickly. I will include a few shots taken with the 28mm though.
Couple of Caveats - I am only sharing my initial thoughts, without any sort of pre-knowledge nor scientific tests and so on.
This is as real as it gets ..... for someone who has never touched a Leica, never read the specs of the digital Leicas
(nor it’s film counterparts), not experienced the famed rangefinder M-lenses.
DOWN & DIRTY REAL WORLD TESTS!!!
