The Noct on film vs. digital: In addition to the basic crop factor and DOF impacts, another factor is the loss of vignetting due to that cropping of the image. A lot of us like this aspect of the...

You should buy the Lux. You need it. You want it. And it is a magical lens - my favorite of the entire M lineup.

Just do it!

I've actually been surprised how few shots I've taken have been affected by the IR-induced magenta cast. In fact, other than several shots taken in a school auditorium which clearly show the affect,...

The only surprising thing to me was that I received the letter, as well. I bought mine a week after the 12/31 deadline passed and so am not eligible for the discount. When you register it you note,...

Thanks Magus. From everything I've seen, read, and heard, I'd agree that the 50 Lux ASPH may be best M lens of all time. It's pretty clear that Leica threw all of their considerable optical...
