I am struggling a bit right now with the decision as to whether to keep my
other 50mm lens, the 1.4 Summilux. Now that I have the real thing, I am not
sure it makes sense to keep two 50mm lenses.>>>>

Hi Nathan,

Once you have a Noctilux attached and get over the weight you are "hooked".
Big time. Save time, just get rid of the other 50mm as all you'll do is
create a major headache of comparing roll after roll from each.

Just live dangerously, sell off the other, get more film and get out there
and do magic with the Noctilux. :)
