I cannot decide which one is better, the bokeh or the model?

I just picked one up used on saturday.

Since I love my summicron 50, but find the FOV of 66mm equivelent on the M8 too long, I borrowed an old screw mount Jupiter-12 35 f2.8 LTM to regain the 50 FOV.

Coming from that lens the nokton is excellent. Sure it is a bit soft wide open, but stopped down to the Jupiter-12s f2.8 it is already nicely sharp. I love the compact size, and the location and feel of the aperture and focus tabs. Great lens.

As others have commented, the size and ergonomics of this lens are superb. Although I have other 35's, I keep this one on the camera most of the time. I like the classic look, especially on B&W.

Here is one: M6, CV 35mm f1.4 Nokton SC, Tri-X

Is the sample variation affecting quality in general (sharpness for instance) or just rangefinder focus adjustment?

I'm thinking about this lens for my X-E1 (or the Skopar 35/2.5) and there rangefinder focus accuracy is of no importance I guess...

I see great examples of this lens on the X-E1 (good sharpness and even a bit 3D) but worry about sample variation, since I would get one second hand only...


BTOH I wonder about how it compares in terms of sharpness to the skopar 35/2.5, both at f2.8 or 2.5

Yep, that's Bob Hall and his original inks and pencils! Worked for both Marvel and DC!

This is a year old thread but I'm seriously pumped that mine is on it's way from Ebay.

I hope that I won't have any focus shift issues; it's coming hooked to an Epson R-D1s.

I love my nokton. I originally got it because it was relatively cheap and planned to sell it once I had the money for a summicron.
I now have the money for a summicron, but I've fallen completely in love with this lens.

These are on M9, but it's worth noting this is one of the very few really small 35s that works OK with the stock sony A7 cameras.

I tried out over thirty 35mm lenses in a side by side "test" of RF lenses, but I could not single out only one 35mm lens as being special and somehow the best. Several lenses did very well in my hands. I ended up buying a Biogon 35/2 and a pre-asph Summilux and a Canon 35/2 in addition to already having a Summicron.

I occasionally feel the urge to cheat on this little workhorse with something else...but I always find it hard to let go. The bang for buck is just tremendous.

Shot on $0.50 mystery 400 iso film from the bargain bin and scanned on a Coolscan IV.

I was hoping to find a few more contributions to this thread since my last post, but it looks like I'm stuck posting back-to-back entries.




That's our dog B, waiting for her best friend to wake up and go play with her.


By the way, is there an official Nokton images thread as there is for many other CV lenses? I could not find one, so I keep posting here...

Doug, did you corredt the barrel distortion in PP? It mrarely bothers me with this lens, but it's definitely there, and yours is the kind of shot that would really bring it to the forefront.

No, I don't think I did... The lowest siding join line shows evidence of curvature from barrel distortion, and the upper one would too I suspect if it continued full width. I would have to open the original with Lightroom to be sure if I made any adjustment though. I do this kind of correction as suits the individual photo. It doesn't really bother me in this instance, but there sure are times where it would.

I found focusing this lens difficult for some reason. Perhaps it was my own fault, I do not know. I sold it to someone who wanted to use it on a digital camera and bought a used Ultron f1.7 LTM. I have been very happy with this lens, though it is larger and not so pretty as the Nokton.

Edit: There is also a new version of the Ultron in M mount. Reportedly it is the equal of the LTM optically and better ergonomically.

Tea Party Concert

M2 w/HP5 @ a concert. Usually use my Summaron 2.8 but needed lightweight and SPEED. The Nokton works perfect for me in this way, though I found composing very difficult in a crowded area.

I bought this lens, tested it for a few days, then returned it and bought the Zeiss 35mm f/1.4 Distagon ZM. The Zeiss is fantastic, no appreciable distortion, sharp at every distance and aperture and overall about the best 35 I've ever used; except it's huge.

My new Nokton Classic S.C. should arrive Tuesday (I'm keeping the Zeiss as well).

It's a tiny bit hazy wide open, but still sharp. Contrast is low compared with modern lenses, even with the multi coated version. There's some barrel distortion, but nothing that can't be corrected easily. And the bokeh has delightful soap bubble effects wide open too. I really enjoy the look produced by this lens; wide open and across a table, it produces some great portraits with a dreamy, classic character.

I’ve had my copy about a month, and have only shot one complete roll with it, but I can already say it’s way better than the Summilux Pre-asph that I once owned. Same sort of aberrations, and dreamy quality wide open, but seemingly more controlled. And sharper.
Plus, the whole filter/hood thing is so much easier.

Thanks to everyone whose posted images from this lens! I've decided to pick one up tomorrow and am more than excited to start shooting some rolls through it.

Good luck with it! It's really a fantastic little workhorse lens that works great as a walk around lens. Work with its limitations in mind and you will be very happy
