Hi guys,

A fun afternoon/evening for Jon Manjiro and I.

Didn't have the Zeiss 35/1.4 ZM yet and no money for the 35 lux V1, so it's the remaining 3 Leica Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 (FLE, ASPH and late German made pre-ASPH) against the budget Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f/1.4.

It's a slaughter!

Anyway, it's just for fun. Don't throw away your pre-ASPH!!

Cheers,

:thumbsup: Great stuff there Benny san and Jonmanjiro!

OMG, this really made me laugh, unlikely in reaction to this thread but someone just listed a pre-asph on BNS with an eye catching "price dropped"! :bsmilie:

That said, I still very much love the "glow" from my pre-asph!
