Just added to my review of the M9 in DAP is a page of examples with the amazing Leica 50mm f/0.95 Noctilux-M ASPH. Thanks go to Leica USA for graciously supplying the demo lens. I am glad Leica designs and builds such amazing lenses.
I found that I was able to focus at 50mm with good consistency by paying close attention. With an hour of daylight remaining, I did yard duty photographing a variety of mundane subjects, always a challenge. I only have the Noctilux for a few days, but its character is already clear: it’s one lens I’d love to own were I an M9 owner.
The Noctilux is a remarkable lens, and it’s in stock at B&H Photo if you have a wheelbarrow full of cash.
Field curvature is “interesting” with the Noctilux, and a salient characteristic that will need to be understood to avoid and/or exploit to advantage. Color rendition and field uniformity are outstanding— I am very impressed there.
In addition to the Noctilux examples, ’ve also made some minor additions and changes to other pages in the M9 review, clarifying some of the focus accuracy issues as well.
