It wasn’t an easy decision. Although my business is doing very good, I’ve never spent this amount of money on a single lens. In fact, the Noctilux always made my summicrons look affordable and I often laughed at the price of the nocti. Yet, I also loved the very specific rendering of this lens and the extra stops it’d give me compared to the 50 cron. My system lacked a very fast 50 that I could use with the rangefinder and the Rokkor 58/1.2, although a good lens, works only with the laggy live view. I decided to give it a try and I just loved the output of this lens. In a few months the weddings will start again and I’ll use this time to get this beast to work. I’m looking forward to it!
