    Really enjoying the Nokton 40mm 1.4 for B/W images...we are doing some remodeling and took these of the crew preparing the foundation support. Don't think they ever had a gringo taking pictures of them while they worked.

    Very nice images, Chad. The single coated 40mm has a very classic look. I like these a lot.

    Thanks Travis. I looked on the lens - it says classic right there on it! They wouldn't lie. ;)

    This thread was started a year ago. It needs an update!

    I don't know that the NEX system is my final resting spot, but the 5n + CV40 is exactly what I want -- contrasty, slightly over saturated, a little dreamy at the edges but sharp in the center.

    I applied some level adjustments in LR4 (basically move the tone curve from linear to S shaped). Often shot with an ND8. Love the bokeh on this lens, too!

    Very nice shots. You need to teach that dog to relax though. :p
