I was just enjoying your compliment and then you hit the ball right out of the stadium.
I bow to you and only seek to learn oh master.

BTW James, those last few are stunning. They make me think of spring, the sun is shining but it's still cool from the breeze.

Thanks for the feedback. The bokeh here shall be classified as distracting and harsh. Still fun to play with the lens in a dull day.

On the occasion after a shot, I flick on the screen and just know... money shot. I'd definately say this is one of those James. Wish it were mine!

Just a quick question. I understand this lens in chipped in some way. Obviously it's a manual focus lens, so I'm wondering what this achieves?
When you switch on a K10D/K20D, do need to input the focal length for SR? or perhaps this is the info that's provided by the lens?

You have to put in the focal length, the chip allows the metering to work so all you have to do is focus manually.

Cheers :-)

Err.. hang on a minute.. My old Pentax-A 50mm f1.7 has no chip, but meters fine... I don't see the point of this chipping yet?

In Lightroom, the Pentax A is an unknown lens, perhaps Noktogon shots would have additional meta data?

Ibam, the Nokton (and indeed all the modern Voigtlanders & Zeiss) behave exactly like an 'A' lens.

I suspect the reference to the lens being chipped was for the benefit of the Nikon crowd, who on the Dxx series could not meter with the previous Voigtlander releases. Another reason (at the time) I prefered the Pentax body over any other to work with these lenses.

A's are chipped. the electrical contacts are not there for nothing.
