Having used the Noct, the focal length *can* be a little short for some live 
subjects comfort level (i.e., you are practically shoving the lens down their 
throat to tightly crop on their face).


I'd miss the extra stop and ability to throw the background out of focus.  In 
my usage, the Noctilux is a perfect match for my style of shooting.
