Congrats. The Nokton is an excellent lens overall. Is it the ltm version or M?

Not so fast (not talking about the speed of your fine new lens). This is RFF. Advice on which 50 can never, ever be only one page here. Long after you win the Pullitzer prize with that lens there will be further additions to this thread, just one or two posts and then nearly another page of enthusiastic discussion. Someone will rudely remind us that this thread was started in 2019 and the OP’s decision was made before the bottom of page 1 but we’ll ignore that as unhelpful and not in the spirit of free exchange. Enjoy the new lens.

This is an integral part of RFF! Threads that last forever and for no obvious reason.

it is true. The lack of distortion grid and back focus tests here is really disappointing.

If it was like this I would keep it.
But ZM has weird build. And LTM has some size .

Well, nothing looks strange on M5 after all .

An excellent choice, but...

If you find it too big, the the CV 2.5/50 is an excellent choice. Maybe it will be to sharp, never fear, there is a collapsible Summicron just around the corner.

I will bookmark this thread to remember to return to it annually to suggest something else.

Yep, you could finally take pictures of something not only alive, but moving.
And landscape could be taken in ten seconds, not in ten minutes.

Great choice! I have one of those as well in Leica thread-mount and have been tempted by the current production chrome models. We'll be interested to see some pix from it too!

Yesterday was the first walk with Color Skopar 35mm. In the evening I also took photos with Nikkor 50mm / 1.4. (tripod, Hp5 +, D76 1: 1). First place .. Scopar (I only have enlargements from Durst 900)

Voigtlander Color-Skopar 50mm 2.5 in LTM with an adapter. Or the Heliar 50mm 2.0 in LTM with adapter, either black or nickel (which I own).
As Richard said, can't be done just yet with the good advices!

Can we ever!
I’d look to match your others in ergonomics, so something with 1/2 click aperture stops rather than the ZM 1/3 clicks. Again, Voigtlander make some nice 28’s, the discontinued f/3.5 or the current f/2 are both excellent choices. 28s however, are generally more expensive than 50s, so it depends what “inexpensive” means to you.

I'm a bit late to the discussion (as always), but I would recommend the Planar for the "warm" colour rendering. What I vote against it is the oddball filter size and the size of the lens. If it where me I would save for a Summicron 50/2 Type 4, the Collapsible one or ANY Summicron really. Although, yes - most 50's are typical.
