      Great shot! Love it.
      I am so interested in this lens.
      Is this Nokton heavy to you?

      hey Masamitony
      Thank you.

      I dont find it THAT heavy. Not when you compare it to my Pentax K1000 + 50/1.2
      They ( body+lens) are about the same in size and weight.
      The extra weight is really a bonus when shooting in low-light, it is much easier to hold it steady at slower shutter speeds.
      Some people say that it blocks up too much of the viewfinder.
      And It does block a portion, but you can work around that.

      It all depends on your budget and what you want to do.
      There is nothing wrong with using a slower lens.
      For most of my work f2.8 is plenty fast.

      Thank you for your kind reply.
      I love your pictures with the Nokton!
      I know it's nothing wrong with f2.8 but f1.2 sounds very juicy.

      Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments.
      I was hesitant to upload it.
      It is from very my first roll with a rangefinder.
