Leica 50mm f/0.95 Noctilux-M Asph lens review (video)

Leica F/0.95 Noctilux Review/Thoughts from Cult of the Noctilux on Vimeo:

This is not really a Lens review just some thoughts on it. I am a passionate Leica shooter and use the 50mm .95 As my only M lens. Please note there are minor artifacts in the images from the video sampling/conversion. You can review all of my Noctilux pictures on my Flickr Page: http://www.flickr.com/scott997.

    “The difference between getting blurry or brilliant photos”. Some blurry photos are just as brilliant as super sharp ones. 😉

  • NYC

    What a yawner

    • Daryl

      Agree, ho hum. Some real great subjects and locations but the photos are amateurish in many ways.
      OTOH – great lens, creative and dynamic, about one day of learning (if that long) not the 6 months mentioned. And every lens will have chromatic aberrations, even apos suffer this with difficult situations.

  • The day ill have my own film leica, ill probably just die of happiness…

    While not necessarily the subjects I would shoot, your choice of camera and lens was like mine back in the early 1990’s. I received a new M6 with the 50mm F/1.0 Noctilux for my 10th Anniversary and never took it off the camera. While not a pro by any means, it took absolutely amazing low light photos over the years. My only regret was it and many other items were stolen about 2 years ago. I have debated on purchasing a new Leica digital M and the 50mm F/0.95 and your experience and photos have now provided the incentive I needed. Thank you and best regards.

    Even IF YOU could afford one of these it seems impossible to buy one. So I’ll just stick with my D7100 and my 50mm f1.8 Lens.. And I am happy with them.

  • what a joke

    washed out lighting
    blurry photos
    must think photos of a strangely dressed (or otherwise) woman is good photography
    i’ve seen better photos taken by paparazzis hiding in bushes

    • fjfjjj

      He said “passionate Leica shooter,” not “passionate photographer.” What did you expect?

      • meh

        he described himself as a photographer specialize in fashion editorial and portraiture photography right in the beginning of the video, which is a real joke IMO

  • yup

    2:30 in the movie: HOLY CRAP!!!! WHAT’S THAT?!

  • A. Lurker

    I’ve seen a longer shot of the sewing machines before in another image. Possibly even for Leica, possibly even here. The woman just before 2:31 Scary Girl is really pretty and this wasn’t shot in Venice so I’m grateful for that anyway.

  • someone not important

    Do a little street casting, spend 400 Dollars on some leather accessories for your M and voilĂ , you’re a fashion photographer. so it goes.
    o boy..

  • MS

    Ahaha wow this is hilarious!

  • Baldo

    I never judge a photographer, but this guy need to learn some basics before saying he makes incredible photography. Anyway, dream lens, dream camera, very nice models ^^Love this All Saints Spitalfields appearance.

  • Hey !

    Take a random camera enthusiast with a lot of bucks. Make him buy a Leica and a Nocti. Then record him doing some basic crappy flash portraits at night and here you are : best channel advertising ever.
    It’s the same technic than Eric Kim…make a kind of small buzz and after a while you start to get a name, even though you are not worth it, just because there are noobs following you on your social media.

  • Daniel

    No offend but maybe it is time to consider an auto focus Nikon/Canon/Sony/Pentax alternative

  • wisemanner

    Wouldn’t mind the camera, wouldn’t mind the lens, wouldn’t mind the models.

  • Dan

    Cringe worthy video. So embarassing.

  • You can’t focus and recompose with a Leica?

    Entirely average images, though I really enjoyed the one with the Volkswagen.

  • ralph henderson
