I've showed this one elsewhere, but here's one of mine to get things started. Wide open on a GH1:

I think the Voigtlander Prominent 50/1.5 Nokton is going to make it onto the M8 soon. I have to use two adapters to do it. But worth it. Let you see where this lens got its name from!

The original Nokton is reputed to be the best Fast 50 of the 1950s. Honestly, I would call it a tie between the Zeiss Opton 50/1.5 and Nikkor 5cm f1.4.

An M to Mu43 adapter is now in my hands so it's all systems go for using my Voigtländers...

I am one happy chap - thanks to the differing sizes of sensors, I have now gained a totally new set of lenses. :)

I'm now thinking I should have charged you around £100 for that adaptor Richard. :rolleyes:

:D

It works superbly with the Ultron 35 and Nokton 50. The 28 works beautifully too but seems to shift the focus range way beyond infinity and the nearest focus point is around 3 metres away, unlike most rangefinder lenses which normally go down to 0.7m. I'm thinking this may be an anomaly unique to the 28.

I'm just glad that it has seemingly opened up a whole new world to you. :)

It's just the wonderful thing with mirrorless - I've got other (to Mu43) adaptors to Nikon, M42 and OM glass as well. The old AI-Nikkor 105-2.5 is just incredible on the small sensor, especially with IBIS helping out, and of course no collection is complete without a Helios 44M in tow.

The Voigts are just tiny though, and really fit in with the Mu43 'way'.
