Noctilux is the God of lenses, I certainly would

 You've stated repeatedly your criticisms of the lens

And would you care to count the numbing number of posts praising the lens?

Actually, neither Ted nor Tina have rebutted the bulk of my criticisms, 
other than Tina pointing out that it really isn't all that heavy, and 
Ted's saying that it is his only 50. I would guess that most of the
