"c*n*n (is this expurgation appropriate?) makes the "other" f1.0 lens,
the 1.0L EF USM announced with some fanfare many years
ago, and still in their catalog (priced about the same as the noctilux)

just out of morbid curiosity,
why is the c*n*n lens have so little mind-share?  is it a decent lens?
has anyone here ever used it?  maybe their problem is they never
came up with a neat name for it.

p.s. i don't ever think i'd ever buy the 1.0L EF USM; as far as far-east
     religions go, i am a n*k*n man. :-)"

Do not forget my "expurgater" friend that Nikon had an excelent Noct Nikkor
58mm f:1,2. A comparison, well done, among Canon F:1, Noctilux and this
Nikon would be IMO, for sure, exciting.

Kind regards
