Thanks for the kind words

Supposedly there's a FF Leica on the way, so your patience just might be rewarded. Meanwhile, I don't think you'll be disappointed with Nikon's 50/1.4. Just be careful of the aperture stop down lever on the rear when handling, mounting and replacing the rear caps. That's the one delicate element of the design. I've read about folks damaging that with routine abuse. Luckily, I'm not that tough on my gear

Thanks Kabe. I shoot on location with 28 and 50 exclusivively. When I
have to and have access to stow equipment I use the 24-70 and all the
rest. Like you I keep my lenses in my pockets. I would like a FF
leica but what can I do. My Rollie and M6 days are over and I am
didigital through and through. As far as I can tell the only option
is 5d/50mm or d700/50mm. And I am getting tired of canon failure. I
like your work btw.
