Leica Noctilux f/1.0 - Magical glass made from German unicorn tears!
14

Around a year ago I was lucky enough to be in Vienna and visited the Leica Shop (amazing vintage Leica store) and they happened to have a number of 50mm Noctilux f/1.0 lenses in stock. I was able to test and try out a few of them and found one in mint condition that seems to be perfectly calibrated... and so with a much lighter wallet, I finally succumbed to the Noctilux siren call!

After using this lens almost constantly, I have written a review and posted on my site if you are interested in this lens. There are not a lot of user type reviews online for this one, so I thought it might be interesting. I've included a lot of photos too (a few posted below as a teaser).

It's a very special lens with a very special look. Any comment at all are welcome as always.

Thanks for checking it out!

Mike
