I know this probably will get me crucified, with all the admiration I've seen for the ASPH version, but I just LOVE my ol' skool 35/1.4--mount it on my M2 with Voigtlander meter stacked on top and I'm not just a hack with a Leica, I'm a hack with a Leica with a fast, compact lens that gives the dreamiest softness wide open. A softness that still manages to convey a great sense of detail and yields shimmery smooth tones. It's not for everything, but I was damn glad I had it for the Modest Mouse show at the Garage in London a few weeks ago. Aaron P.S. Mr. Deadman: Something I've been wondering about ever since I saw your moniker. Is that Deadman in the Jim Jarmusch sense or is it a play on that great band of yore, the Dead Boys? Or neither? Just curious.
