These were all taken with the Nokton and the thread needed a bump. This thread must not be allowed to die. Stephen Gandy needs to sell all his stock to PF members.

So the truth is that this lens is a big reason I decided to buy a Pentax DSLR. I pre ordered my Nokton the same day I bought my K10d. The K10d has been a slow but fun learning experience for this film lover, and I am now getting out using it more and more. And, I am getting out with the Nokton.

Here are a couple at f1.4...

I also noticed this morning that there was not a group on flickr specifically to share photos taken with the Nokton....so....

I started one.

flickr Voigtlander 58/1.4 Group

If you flickr, please join the group and add your photos to our (hopefully our, right now it is my )pool. Feel free to invite anyone you know will be interested.

Thanks.

I think I missed the focus area I wanted but here is another one from last weekend.
I have the magnifying eye cup on the way and will maybe add the Katz Eye later if that doesn't do it.

There isn't much room for maneuver with that DOF, leaves at the bottom are nicely in focus.
I do like the picture though, that leaf looks like it's made from suede or velvet.

Yours are a lot less chlorotic than the ones I shot.

I wanted to reinterate on my feeling that Cosina has done everything right with this lens. They've taken a basic concept, a fast fifty but made it just a little 'more' in every angle I analyze it.

Its 58mm, not entirely uncommon, but different. It helps in the oof area to have that bit shallower dof and the minimum distance is at the accepted minimum for the range at .45m so its sitting in a bit of a sweet spot there. Its as well built as one could possibly hope and at a totally reasonable price ($379 new). Perhaps most importantly, the optics are great (and its an 'A').

I'm not sure how much Cosina makes off these lenses vs the work they do for Zeiss, but I truely belive they have found a great balance of value for product which seems to resonate far and wide. I see this thread and realize all of our different styles and gear - the Nokton finds its way into that. It represents a really good business practice by Cosina, I hope they stay true to that and give us a few more goodies with the same philosophy behind it:

Take an existing niche, find the sweet spot. Produce an optic that is worthy of peoples time, money and consideration (and camera bag real estate) and price it for everyone. Thats how legends are born.

If this is indeed how Cosina consider to produce future lenses, what niche do you think is next?
