This thread helped me make up my mind to try my luck with one. I like focus tabs and I like small lenses. The fact that it opens up to 1.4 is a bonus, which I can take or leave (I'd prefer f2 if it required less compromises in design).

Here are a couple from my first roll (Kodak Gold 400, poorly scanned)



and



These were all with the Shapeways hood. My Nokton is the MC version, but I saw flare on a couple of frames when I was using the standard LH6 CV hood.

Overall, I'm enjoying the lens and the results it gives.

It was my first rangfinder lens on Leica M8. I think it is a wonderful lens that has been attacked by the apparently-leica-sponsored-famous-blog-reviewer that Google send us when looking for a Leica related lens review. Despite the attack, the lens delivers. It is hard to focus because of the small view, so I got a 1.25x lupe and works fine. I like to use it indoor at nights.

I cannot decide which one is better, the bokeh or the model?

I just picked one up used on saturday.

Since I love my summicron 50, but find the FOV of 66mm equivelent on the M8 too long, I borrowed an old screw mount Jupiter-12 35 f2.8 LTM to regain the 50 FOV.

Coming from that lens the nokton is excellent. Sure it is a bit soft wide open, but stopped down to the Jupiter-12s f2.8 it is already nicely sharp. I love the compact size, and the location and feel of the aperture and focus tabs. Great lens.

As others have commented, the size and ergonomics of this lens are superb. Although I have other 35's, I keep this one on the camera most of the time. I like the classic look, especially on B&W.

Here is one: M6, CV 35mm f1.4 Nokton SC, Tri-X

Is the sample variation affecting quality in general (sharpness for instance) or just rangefinder focus adjustment?

I'm thinking about this lens for my X-E1 (or the Skopar 35/2.5) and there rangefinder focus accuracy is of no importance I guess...

I see great examples of this lens on the X-E1 (good sharpness and even a bit 3D) but worry about sample variation, since I would get one second hand only...


BTOH I wonder about how it compares in terms of sharpness to the skopar 35/2.5, both at f2.8 or 2.5

Yep, that's Bob Hall and his original inks and pencils! Worked for both Marvel and DC!

This is a year old thread but I'm seriously pumped that mine is on it's way from Ebay.

I hope that I won't have any focus shift issues; it's coming hooked to an Epson R-D1s.

As a matter of interest, how are you getting on with it?
