Tom Ugly's bridge is a site I quite like to test out new gear, particularly at night as it can be quite challenging on lenses and cameras.

Taken with an Olympus E-P1 with Voigtlander 25mm f/0.95 lens.

Very nice!

That's a very nice shot. I've got similar with my Canon G9 and G10. However, there was a little noise in those. This looks noise free. I've not been able to match the Canons with this kind of shot with my E-P2, but I'm getting there.

I finally located a dealer in Hong Kong who has the Voigtlander in stock. In a weeks time I hope to get my grubby hands on the Nokton to see what it can do in China. This looks very promising, in fact, it is the best night shot I've seen so far with the Voigtlander.

Well, since nobody else has asked, it's down to me, who was Tom Ugly? I quite like his bridge, in a butch sort of way, and yes the lens does resolve great detail.

Thanks for the feedback guys. The Voigtlander is an amazing lens and its performance has exceeded my expectations. It might not be cheap but for what it can do (provided you are patient), it is outstanding value for money.

It is named after a person but not the come-by-lately entertainer who took the name from the bridge. The name comes from the Tom Uglys Point which is on the northern side but there is some dispute how that gets its name. Some say it is from a guy who owned the land called Tom Huxley, others claim a one-legged boat operator known as "Tom Woggleg" or "Wogul Leg Tom" and a mispronunciation of his name by local Aboriginies for the term they used to describe a wooden leg.

As for the image, I also took some at the same time using my Nikon D90 and Nikon 10-24mm lens. Now this lens (and camera) are highly regarded but the Voigtlander 25mm lens creams the Nikon lens which was badly affected by flare. At lest the sensor in the D90 is a lot cleaner.

Thanks for this Peter, those are the sort of facts that I can empathise with, not definitive but full of character, they speak to me more so than an indie rocker :smile:
