    Got this beauty in the mail today. I immediately felt at home with the 40mm field of view and I started taking pictures right away.

    My daughter cooked me a meal this evening, nasi goreng (Indonesian) :cool:

    Crisis. Another shop closing down. "Totale uitverkoop" means something like final sales. "Alles moet weg": everything has to go. The rest of the alley consists of shops that closed down earlier, no lit shopping windows there anymore. Made this one while getting some groceries and a photography magazine.

    Great shots. I have the CV 35mm 1.4 and the size makes it perfect for A7(R)/nex esp considering how small they are for a f/1.4 lens. Enjoy!

    As I love my Nokton more over each day, I decided to use him for some snaps on ball of climbers (how to say, "Mountainball" or "Climbingball"??)

    All shots ISO 3200, F1,4-2, and 2-3 thousandth alcohol in my blood... Luckily I found myself really good in manual focusing in such a "bad conditions" :drinks:____:crying:____:monkey:____:drinks:

    I just received the SC version yesterday in the mail. Eating for my close focus adapter.

    It's kinda hard to get used to the focus lever for me.

    I use mine a lot and indeed I'm not used completely to that lever. The levers on the aperture scale are quite handy however because you can get a rough feel at what aperture is set.

    So 2-3 promille alcohol goes down well with this lens? Good to know :). BTW, in the html of your inserted picture there's a "text-align:right" in a style attribute and that messes up the web page quite a bit.

    Looks OK now to me, thanks. I also can see all the pictures now instead of only the first one and I agree with Dave, some very nice catches with great expressions. B&W really works here for me. :thumbup:

    Using lever is ok during waist-level shooting. I have no camera with viewfinder, but I thing on eye-level lever will be uncomfortable...

    I would like to share one tech-tip for this lens. I like compactness too much, that I can´t imagine I must use HUGE hood on this lens... But front element is not too deep... He is really prone to scratch. So, what to do? I don´t care about flares too much, so I bougt only this little step down aluminium ring and another cheap 40,5 lens cap and the problem is solved! In addition, original Voigtlander lens cap has really soft springs, which hold it on lens, so cap falls frequently from lens, especially in camera bag... New lens cap hold as hell! :dance2:
