I actually find the Noctilux very comfortable to handhold at slow speeds
(successfully down to around 1/8. It rests very nicely in the hand and
(perhaps because I have quite big hands) I actually find it easier to use
than some of the smaller ones. For the same reason (as well as the added
speed) I traded my Tele-elmarit on a Summicron 90 F2 and find that I can
handhold the Summicron much easier than I used to the Tele-Elmarit.

Hope this helps
