Voigtlander 40/1.4 Nokton photos, please

I didnt see a thread for images from Nokton 40mm lens, so why not start one - after all it's a good lens at a great price. I dont have many from mine yet, but hope other users of it will add some here.
One to start things off:

Only had my Nokton SC for a couple of months and it is a god performer. I went shooting again at the weekend with it and although I got some good shots I'm not sure about the focal length (60mm) on the RD1. I seem to have a problem framing with it, often finding my compositions leaning to one side. Odd really as i don't tend to have this problem with my other CV lenses. Most likely my poor framing than anything to do with the lens, so maybe I need more practice with it.. I can't see me shooting this as my standard lens on the RD1 although I know many do. I normally shoot a CV 28/2 Ultron. A lens well worth the money though.

This was my first rangefinder lens, and while I don't have it any more, I miss it often.

Your M6 does in fact have 40mm framelines, for the "35mm" framelines are closer to 40mm (especially when the subject is near the camera).

Great photos, everyone!. I'm really surprised that Cosina made a 35/1.4 and is able to sell it - as good as CV 40/1.4 is and much cheaper too. Oh, I know - it's the HUGE difference between 35mm and 40mm, right?

Well, the 35/1.4 Nokton has one more element than the 40, so presumably more expensive to make. And, more recently introduced CV lenses have generally been more expensive than previous lenses. The 35 is more recent than the 40...

The more I look at photos I get from my Nokton 40, the more it reminds me of Summicron Rigid I used to have, just with more flare control and maybe not quite as sharp.

This thread seems to be sleeping, time for some coffee.
Not to talk too much wet stuff, but I've found my true love: HP5+ @800 and D-76.

I like the results from this little lens as well as its looks and diminutive size/weight, although frankly I am not too fond of its handling and focusing. I guess I've struggled getting used to tab focusing. All shot with my R3A:

Just unofficially "shot" my first wedding (my cousin was getting married, I brought my camera).

I'm glad I had the nokton!

This is the SC version on my Oly EP2. Seems to me that the lens has more of that desaturated single-coating character on u4/3...

One of my favourite shots of late, taken on Rollei Pan 25 film, in Whitstable Harbour. If it wasn't for the modern cars and buildings at the back, this would to me have a timeless quality, and I especially love how the shadow detail's been caught.

I recently purchased the S.C. version of this lens from the classified. The following shots are taken from the very first test roll. I was unsure about the focusing tab at the beginning, but now I got used to it and focussing is really quick.

Nice images everyone... very inspiring and makes me want to get out there and shoot...

Wolfpeterson, I guess it's fun teaching the girlfriend to focus with a RF :-)

Slightly off track, but does anyone have a problem with this lens binding as it is focused? I have an early MC one and if I try to focus with just the tab, it binds. It works fine with two fingers. Any suggestions?

I'm reminded that the first run of 500 copies of the MC version were quickly sold out in Japan but there were complaints of stiff focusing. There was some discussion about it here as I recall, so a search should dig up the threads. Some reported that they'd "exercise" the focusing while sitting watching TV and the focusing action eventually eased up.
