Let's see your Leica 50mm Lux Pre-ASPH Shots!

When I first started shooting I was drawn to the wide lenses, 20mm, 24mm and currently 35mm. Now I am hearing the call of the 50 and am very interested in getting a Leica 50mm pre-asph. I've done the forum search (we really need to improve that) but haven't found as many pictures as I would like. So if you have this lens, please post some images, I would really like to see more examples of how this lens performs. Thanks....

Damaso, I also have a couple on that thread that Andy mentions (dog pics on page two). I love the lens.

Todd, that shot in the hospital is very good - heartbreaking, but good.

I've only shot a quick roll but I am intriguing by the signature of the lens. I think I have a ways to go before I've mastered it...

The orchestra I'll be singing Verdi's Don Carlo with next week. Okay, it's only 7 lines, but it's my first time singing opera!

MP, 50/1.4 Summilux pre-asph, and Kodak BW400CN @ EI 800.

One of my top five operas! Good thing about singing Count di Lerma is you can leave after the first act!

We're not doing the opera. It's only a selection of various pieces for an outdoor concert. Heck, this is scary enough for me!
