I have found that the color saturation and shadow detail of the Noctilux 
under low light levels to be extraordinary. Also the wide aperture produces a 
different look from what you get with a slower lens. Further, you can use 
finer grain film.  Simply slowing the shutter down a couple of notches 
doesn't do it.
