Noct vs. Hex image comparison at f/1.4
With all the chatter on the 50/1 Noctilux and 50/1.2 Hexanon M, I thought I'd dig up my old test negs on the Noctilux to compare with the Hexanon at their lowest common demoninator I tested: f/1.4. Please note that the only manipulation to the scan was to adjust the color balance of the Noctilux as it's known for having a warm color cast and with incandescent lighting, it's even worse. No manipulation of color for the Hexanon was done. First, the full frame to demonstrate overall image quality and light falloff.
