It is my "ready for anything" lens. I am natural at using the 50mm focal length, and the lens is capable of recording images in more situations than practically all other lenses in existance. When in doubt, I take out the Noct. > I'm afraid the NOC is so specialized - it'll become as > functional as my Nikon fish-eye...nice every once and > a while - but not my first choice for the job. The only drawback is the bulk. Still, an M body and a Noct is lighter than many SLR + 50mm lens combination. Combined with Tom's Rapidwinder, it's such a dangerous weapon that it should be listed as controlled substance... Terribly addictive to boot.
