Seeing Double

GF1, f0.95, 1/160, ISO 640, JPG b&w, 50mm (Voigtländer Nokton f0.95 25mm)

The Nokton is a fantastic lens and gives a very film-like quality to pictures, especially if you set the camera to b&w. I just love the character of this lens and aside from my Leica f2.8 28mm R mount lens this is my favorite lens for the GF1 and shows that opptical quality beats software corrections anytime.
But not just the quality is fantastic also the bright aperture allows for very fast shutter speeds at low ISO even in very dark conditions.

The only problem is at times to nail the focus and although I did not do it in this picture I still like it best from today.


  1. Thanks for your comment Martin!

    I was not sure if I should keep the picture because it was not in focus but I really like it so decided to keep it and post it.

  2. Great street shot Christian ... how lucky you did not delete it :-) and post it
