How often would you use it at 0.95.

At that aperture the depth of field would be wafer-thin.

Yes, but there is a lot of new possibilities in it.

That is a ridiculous price to pay for any lens. But, each to their own. :)

It comes with a beautiful case. If you want just the case, you could buy it for US$ 1000!!! How crazy is that!

Ugh, they must be on the same meds that the people at Apple are on with their new monitor.

As far as I am concerned, you would lose your bet.

If you have the money and think you can use the performance, then get it.

 

The results are capable of being spectacular.

 

Just like the decision to buy a Ferrari, or a private jet plane.

 

We mere mortals have to suffer frustration.

I see no point in buying such a specialised lens. The extreme corners of its performance envelope would be explored only rarely. 

A bit like most Ferraris.

It amuses me to see how many supercars are driven around Central London.  Large areas now have a 20 mph limit, the rest are 30 mph.  The advantage of a supercar is that you don't need to use the heavy clutch, as you can stay in first gear.  Except when you have to slow down for the lights, heavy traffic, etc.

 

So I think the buyer of this super lens will probably have more fun than the average Ferrari driver.

So is the Noct not subject to the Ultra Low Emissions legislation ? Must cost lots of carbon to produce, surely !

 

It never ceases to amaze me how many supercars you see in places like Hong Kong and inner London .. pure posing IMHO !

 

cheers, Maurice
