Wadding in late to the Noctilux discussion for a bit of his favorite
sport, B. D. bashing, Greg Lorenzo pulls the hair out of his @#% long
enough to write...
"Concur. Try it first then critique it."

Which is not surprising, as only someone with very little real
photographic experience would be so foolish as to suggest that one
cannot criticize the performance of a lens without using it; all one has
to do is examine images produced by the lens to be able to say what one
thinks of its performance.

Its not just a mention of the Noctilux and certain other Leica lenses or
bodies. The list of uninformed rants includes any and all Leica SLR's,
Leica's Digilux and Digilux 11. Any and all reviews by Erwin Puts and
seemingly any positive review of any thing Leica. The attack on Frank
Von Riper comes to mind.

Concur. Try it first then critique it.
