Voigtlander 40mm f/1.2 Nokton Appreciation Thread

Hey all, the new 40mm Nokton is a dream. In m-mount, it's very compact, light and creates lovely images. At 1.2 it is sharp (so long as the image is in focus), but not quite as bitingly sharp as some other modern lenses (the Zeiss 35mm f/1.4 zm for example). It is contrasty and creates saturated looking colors. The oof rendering is interesting...there can be some onion rings and hard edges but also smoothness and very pleasing softness...still trying to figure it out.

At any rate, those are my thoughts. Here are some pictures.
