Shot into the sun without a lens hood (wouldn't have helped much anyway!):

Some days are easy. No tripods, reflectors and lights. Just come across something that may be interesting. Hmm, black and white?

A moist morning. I am really enjoying the use of this lens.

A rainy day, so I used this lens rather than the Olympus 60mm for some Orchids.

Some wonderful images, folks - been following this Showcase for a while now. I really like my Nocticron, but judging from the results people are getting with the 1.7 I'm wondering if I'm better off selling the 1.2, getting its little brother and pocketing £500 or so.

No, keep your Nocticron. It is faster, bigger, heavier and has Leica written on it. I carried one around for 4 hours and it felt so big on my GX80. I was not impressed with the shots I had taken, but persuaded myself to buy the vanilla 1.7 if I was able to get a discount. I bought it with the P25f1.7, both for less than the cost of the PL25 f1.4. The 42.5 is brilliant for me, small, light, and I think the photos I have taken with it are more than good. The P25 has not had much use. Keep the Nocticron, you knew what you were doing when you bought it.

Thanks for the input, fellas - it's much appreciated. I cannot really fault the Nocticron, but amongst my collection of glass it's not my favourite. Bearing in mind its cost - even though it was bought used, and for a good price - dare say I'm putting myself under pressure to fall for its charms. To keep the Showcase 'clean' I'll probably start a thread on this'n'that. :)

Ok, I traded my Nocticron for this little beastie.Sure, the 1.7 doesn't quite have the creamy backgrounds of its bigger brother, nor does it have that classy feel. However, it's an absolute gem of a lens and doesn't purple-fringe half as much either.

Talk about a mix of traditional formalwear and the modern world of body piercings, wristwatch and cell phone.
Around Asakusa Temple there are a lot of rental kimono shops. Japanese girls like walk for Asakusa wearing traditional dress for a day. Obviosuly the mobile is always ready for selfies :)
