I'm pretty much dissapointed with my Leica 0.95 ASPH Noctilux.
Its a great lens but... miss bags of caracter.
Although the same size and pretty much same weight, I dont like the way it handles on my M9.
That and I want to move to MF Digital : I want to try it. There, I said it.
Have to buy it used and have a few moves at the moment that I would like your guys idea :
- Pentax 645D, best bang for the buck, complete system, waterproof, quite recent ( for my intended budget, which is a trade in for my Nocti ) but... I'm not very familiar with the Pentax lens and I dont see anything that "pops". I'm searching and searching on the internet and seeing pictures, but not seeing any special bokehs, no dreaming oof, no razor sharpness. In theory its a great system, with good old manual focus lens ( I love manual ) but.. I just dont see it. Any ideias where to start looking ?
- Leaf Aptus 75 + Contax 645 : Zeiss lens I dream of. Contax is superb. Aptus 75 a nice back (albeit a bit on the old side) but the Contax Zeiss lens do make up for it. I cant stop looking everywhere for the 80 f2 samples, almost all of them are simply drop dead gorgeous
- Hasselblad V + digital back : bit out of my reach, searching everyday for a good deal on the UK photoshops. I love Hassy V system and its lens
- other option : is it possible ( with good results ) to have Hassie V lens via an adaptor for a Pentax 645D ? Apart from hyperfocal ? Can we see focusing clear on the viewfinder ? Accurate ?
if someone in europe wants to trade in a MF Digital system for a Noctilux 0.95 as new, let me know. I'll fly and do the switch.
