    Leica M 50mm Nocti on G1

    Lens: Leica M 50mm Nocti 2nd Generation with built in hood.
    Adapter : Novoflex

    Just a some grab shots, nothing spectacular. Shot @ f1. Speed unknown. Re-sized in PS and no other adjustments. Focuing is much easier with the G1 than the M8. (More hits)

    There are other better Nocti - G1 shots in the forum... please post them here

    Shots I have seen on the LUF with this lens are usually musch softer and slightly out of focus. This makes the lens look great.

    your second shot unlike most of these 'heres lens x on camera y" shots is actually a great photo... regardless of the lens.

    I really get tired of the endless brickwalls, flowers, dogs and cuddly toys used to show how 'good' a lens is

    peace

    Thanks for the compliments

    Yes... focusing is much easier on the G1.

    Nocti bokeh is a love it/hate it thing... It is unique & I am in the "love it" camp.
