Joe,

I said "no focus shift" :-).

And: between a Zeiss 35/1.4 at 3000 USD with no focus shift and a Leica at 5000 with focus shift, I would choose the former.

Chrome or Black 35/1.2 Nokton?

Well,

I would like to buy the Nokton 35/1.2.

Is there any difference between the two versions (except collectability, etc)? Closer tolerances?

Thank You, Horea

To revive this thread, what is striking me as a major difference is the dynamic range of the CFV-39, which is 12 stops, versus M9's 6-7. That would be something I would love to have.

Had both. The C-Biogon is much better made than the Summarit (the aperture ring on this one got extremely loose after 6 months), has less distortion and flare.

I had both of them: Summicron ASPH is by far more contrasty.

The Biogon has a moderate contrast, however its smaller cousin, the C-Biogon is more contrasty than the Summi.

Just my 2 cents.
