Nokton 50mm f/1.5 ASPH: Both Leica Mt & Nikon S: Show us your photos
After doing a little searching, I didn't see a dedicated thread for photos taken with the Voigtlander Nokton 50mm 1.5 ASPH. Regardless, here's one.

I bought this lens a little more than a week back. I was so pleased with the Nokton 35mm 1.2 ASPH that I thought I'd give this lens a try. I prefer a 50mm, so I had little problem coming up with an excuse for a nifty fifty.

I've been using this with my M9 and, so far, no problems focusing. I use a 50/75 Voigtlander Type II LTM to M adapter. The adapter is quite nice. I used a Dremel and created the little recesses for coding. I've coded the adapter as a Leica Summilux 50 pre-ASPH (type II) and think the images are great.

Anyhow, on to a few images. Post yours.

Not a bad lens for $500 bucks. Looks like it draws beautifully.

Beautiful shot, very cinematic, Helen!
The local Voigtlander importer had several examples of this lens in stock according to their website - until I rang him that I want one. :( And it seems there are none left here nor in neighbouring Germany.. :(

Great images posted so far. I think I just may have to pick one up some day instead of a 50mm 'cron.

It is mostly the photographers who created these images and not the lems that did the job.

I really liked this lens, but had too many 50's (is that possible?), so I sold it. Definitely a little gem of a lens. Nicer OOF than some of the Voigtlanders and very sharp.

thanks Ray,
I've always thought it was a great lens for b/w photography.
