    Franco, beautiful photos, thank you for sharing them!

    I love my Voigtlander Nokton 50/1.5 & Color-Heliar 75/2.5 lens and the photos they produce.

    Very impressive output for the Voigtlander 90/3.5 for shots taken in a concert hall.

    . . . . . raises the question, do I need another 90mm lens . . . .

    Life is Grand!

    A faster lens would have been nice to keep to keep the iso levels down.

    Thank you, Dan, I'm just starting to know what I can (and cannot) do in digital with my m39 lenses. I have the Nokton 50/1.5 too, and I like it very much...
    The concert was outdoor, not in a concert hall, the problem here was the combination of low light and fast moving subjects. I shot 90% of ny photos at 3200 iso

    Of course, but for me the choice was between 50/1.5 90/3.5 and 135/4, and 50/1.5 was too short for the job

    Nice shots.

    What did you do to clean out any noise - if at all?

    Great set! Looks pretty good for ISO3200 actually. Love it!

    I think I like the B&Ws even better than the color images.
    The "fixer-stained one looks particularly nice.
    thanks!

    Yup, I like them. The top one in particular also if it benefits from being showed together with the other ones. It made me feel happy.

    regards,
