For those of us that consider the f/.95 out of reach, we have this slightly affordable alternative fast 50 to satiate our lust for speed. I've been shooting my M8.2 a lot lately since there's a break in my schedule to just go out and have fun with photography again. I've been dragging my 1DX and L Lenses around for the most part shooting motorsports, weddings and other gigs here and there that kept me tied up for the most part so after dusting off my Leica kit, I soon learned to appreciate how it was smaller and lighter all over again. My Canon wide angle weighs more than this body/lens combo, so it feels practically weightless lugging it around.

AN old and unloved thread that deserves resurrection! A new 0.95 50mm Noctilux is over $14k here Down Under, so the option suggested above is well worth investigating.

My f1.0 Noctilux was made in 1988 and is in as new condition, for a 'mere' AU$7200 from Fotopia. Have used it on the M246 and love the unique rendering, almost 3D ;>;)
