P.S. ..and, given the thread title, a photo:
Mike -- thank you so much! that's kind of what we came up with, but i wasn't sure. (the joke is that i do so much low light shooting, using my lenses wide open with ISO 800 or 1600 -- i've forgotten what sun was like.) i'll start with the 4X and move up to 8X if i get more adventurous when i'm in Los Angeles in May.

gorgeous photo. btw. the colours just pop! it's a good reminder of why i'm getting this lens. it seems to be in a class all it's own. keep them coming!

Thank you!
I always consider selling this lens. Or trading it. I don't use it as much as I should and there are other things I need/want.
But it looks surreal!
*grumble*

^^ The photos you take with that lens say "keep it" (of course my $0.02 only ...)

definitely a keeper! you make it sing!

i'm dying to get mine but it's still a week or two away

after carrying around the Nocti yesterday to practice focussing on it, i spent half the time in cafes knowing i'd made the right decision to get the 75 as well (closer focusing, longer view).

between the two, i don't have money to join a gym. then again, lugging these two monsters around, i won't need it

seriously loving your photos, Carl, thank you (and keep 'em coming)!

thank you everybody for continuing to post. there's no doubt i love the lens but, more importantly, i love what you all are doing with it.

maybe it's one of those lenses that is so big an unwieldily that you, yourself, really have to love and it pushes you to go that extra distance?

i've gone through the images multiple times, kind of putting the perspective in my head. this one, in particular, caught my eye -- how had i missed it before? it reminds me very much of a Steichen....

Carl -- although the colour is lovely, would you be willing to convert it to black and white for me to see (and maybe put it up a wee bit larger)?

i love women's backs and have seen so few photos here. it makes me regret that i don't have anybody that's game to model. but this makes me wonder if, with the limited depth of field, i might be able to do a self-portrait in the mirror...?

Roland -- *** is that??? i mean, it's gorgeous, but it's driving me nuts trying to figure it out

thanks for the bump, btw. i got my 75 Lux right after my Epson died so i never got to test it. just received my used M8 and it looks like the focus is spot on (hallelujah!). still dealing with the ins and outs of the M8, however, so it might be a while as i don't want to dishonour all the beautiful images in this thread.

keep them coming!

Well, there is no question this lens does a beautiful job of rendering the image, but, I have to say that I think this thread has a wealth of amazing work. Thanks to all, I've really enjoyed these images.
