Subject: 50 Noct. in bright light

   I'm just curious about this. Everything I read about the 50/1 Noctilux 
says it isn't for general photography and only for low light use. So what 
would happen if I mounted a Noctilux on my M3 (and don't I wish I could 
afford to!) and took pictures in the noonday sun? Would civilization, such as 
it is, crumble?

   Thanks. As I said, this is just academic. I'm not planning to buy one!
