Erik.
Couldn't be more expensive than that steel-rimmed 35mm f1.4 Summulux you use from time to time, LOL...

Thank you Joseph!


Erik.
Thanks to you Erik.

"Onion rings" are the typical menu of the Sonnar restaurant, there are those who like them and those who don't.
Nokton is the right choice for refined palates too.

Cheers

Anyway, we could ask to Yokosuka Myke if he could do some side-by-side shots between 50 / 1.1 and 50 / 1.2, I think he has both. Thus one could see, in photographic practice, the differences and what they consist of.

It seems that Yokosuka has all the Voigtländer lenses! Maybe he will make such a test.

From what I've seen until now, I'll keep the f/1.1; I think it is sharper. The f/1.2 looks nice, however I do not like the bayonet-fitting on the front of the lens. I dislike it on all lenses, except on the Summilux 35mm f/1.4 "steel rim".

Erik.

Unfortunately they have taken this kind of style, which I don't like. Meanwhile, it's more notable and going unnoticed with that shimmer is difficult. It is only good on that Summilux first type, which for me remains the best.
We hope that dear Yokosuka Myke has some of his time to devote to this field test, around Japan ... but also at home. Come on Myke

I do forgot to say that the Nokton 50/1.2/40/1.2 front ring bright silver is common with Zeiss lenses, both built from Cosina, probably this commonality means something.
